A strategy that we believe has the most effect, is in our Learnership readiness program, covering all the basics for our youth before they embark on a new journey (Ethics, Attire, Hygiene, Budgeting, Time keeping, Etiquette, Behavior, Rules and regulations, following and understanding of policies and procedures
As per the Skills Development Act, each seta must develop a Sector Skills Plan which focuses on the profile of the labour force and the supply and demand within the labour market.
SDC has aligned all courses, across many different SETA’s to fall in within the scarce and critical skills of South Africa, we source and train youth to become qualified in these areas, offering them the utmost guidance and support in order for them to complete with a full qualification and workplace experience. SDC has also added a division that is a Financial Service Provider, offering funeral policies to all our learners and training them to become independent agents and create their own source of income by doing so we are contributing to our economy as a whole.

We are a Supplier Development beneficiary and due to financial assistance from our Customers we have been able to increase our operational capabilities, employ more staff, host more learners and provide the utmost unbelievable learning experience for our learners.
MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
“The SDC slogan reads, “We are the difference”, and we stand by that 100%. Skills Development has become an “industry” and in a lot of ways that’s a good thing. On the other hand, there are Training Providers that are constantly looking for short cuts, and focusing on quantities rather than quality, pushing for higher numbers to reach higher turnovers. Skills Development is supposed to be approached with patience, because really developing a skill comes over time. At SDC, our end goal and main focus lies in furthering our learner’s abilities. We want to give them a solid foundation and equip them for their future. The future for our learners is to become full-time employees and not professional learners, being recycled by Training providers for personal gain. Hence, “We are the difference”.
The Skills Development Corporation recently signed a Top Empowered partnership with Top Empowerment, which allows SDC the opportunity to represent top empowerment companies operating within our country. SDC is amongst a small percentage of South African businesses to qualify for this position and Topco aims in giving the best South African companies the market exposure they deserved.
SDC will feature in the Impumelelo Top Empowered publication set to be sold towards the end of 2018, and we look forward to sharing it with you. Visit Top Empowerment today to see our SDC profile.
