Workplace readiness with Momentum Life

This beginning of Women’s Month saw disabled learners in Soweto benefit from the Workplace Readiness Programme which kicked off at Adelaide Tambo School for the Physically Challenged.

While the benefits of hiring persons with disabilities may be widely acknowledged, demystifying, and highlighting the largely marginalised disability sector as well as the sourcing and accessing of relevant skills within this sector remains a challenge.

On Wednesday 03 August, the first in a series of the 2022 Workplace Readiness Events began at Adelaide Tambo School. This school, situated in White City, Soweto, provides education to learners with physical disabilities and learning disabilities.

Over 100 Grade 11 and 12 students heard from industry experts about how to prepare for life beyond school. Topics included how to handle a job interview, drafting a winning CV, and more about accessing universities for students with disabilities.

The event sponsor for the day, Momentum Life, shared with students about opportunities for future applicants looking to work at this diverse and continuously developing insurance company. They provided goodie bags filled with exclusive merchandise and even offered cash prizes throughout the event.
