Empowering individuals to become productive members of society
Atlantis community project (workplace readiness programme)
Lack of education, limited access to resources and poor infrastructure are some of the challenges hampering economic development in Atlantis. Having operated a manufacturing plant for some years in Atlantis, Tellumat recently completed a skills development programme to help alleviate the skills shortage in Atlantis and surrounding areas. We partnered with Media Work and the MICT (Media Information and Communication Technologies) SETA and other stakeholders to provide a workplace readiness and foundational learning programme.
Approximately 150 young people between the ages of 18 and 25 had the opportunity to study and will have the opportunity to study and equip themselves for further tertiary studies while earning a stipend. Candidates that successfully completed the foundational learning programme are eligible to study any of the TVET (technical and vocational education and training) qualifications offered by the West Coast College.
We believe in building intellectual capacity for business, engineering and scientific research and development. Our bursary scheme provides financial support to employee dependants with limited resources for tertiary studies. Over the years we have awarded numerous bursaries for diplomas and degrees in Commerce, Engineering, IT, and Science. In addition to cooperation with key customer education initiatives we also provide funding for postgraduate and PhD studies at select higher learning institutions.
