Skills development has been recognised as a key component of South Africa’s transformation and economic growth. According to Manpower South Africa’s 10th annual Talent Shortage Survey, South Africa’s continued deficit is being compounded by a lack of technical skills, which is having a negative impact on employment across many sectors of the country’s economy.
Bytes People Solutions (BPS) remains steadfast in their commitment to building the right talent for South Africa’s jobs of today and tomorrow by expanding their range of learning programme clusters.
Ten years ago, BPS offered two ICT-related programmes. Today, it delivers 20 accredited programmes to around 2 000 people every year.
Although the focus is still on IT, BPS also now offers National Certification in Accounting, Business Administration, Business Analysis, Contact Centres and Generic Management.
The advantage of this expanded range of qualification options provides learners with a wider range of skills that allows them to work in various areas of an organisation such as finance, accounting, operations, logistics, marketing and supervisory roles.
And while unemployed young people who are placed successfully with client companies comprise a large portion of the annual learner cohort, companies see the benefit in also sending existing full-time employees on specifically the Generic Management and Business Analysis learnerships.
All BPS’ learnerships are registered with the relevant SETAs, and are delivered successfully by an in-house team of skilled assessors, moderators and facilitators.
Dr Madelise Grobler, MD of BPS, is rightfully proud of her company’s progress over the past decade. “We have grown our portfolio of services to the point where, in addition to presenting IT programmes to new clients, we can offer more solutions to our existing customers.”
