Over 360 disabled learners enrolled for learnerships in the Phatshoane Henney Training Academy
09 November 2017
Since the establishment of the Phatshoane Henney Training Academy in 2014, over 360 disabled learners have been funded by and enrolled for formal learnerships empowering them to improve their chances for employment and earning an income.
The Phatshoane Henney Training Academy, is a joint venture project with leading training provider LFP Group Holdings, and was established as part of the commitment of the Phatshoane Henney Group, South Africa’s largest legal network, to socio-economic and skills development. The Academy utilises funding provided from member firms in the Phatshoane Henney Group and their clients to fund formal accredited learnership programmes for black disabled learners - and so help address dire skills shortages within South Africa, and in particular amongst disabled persons.
The Phatshoane Henney Training Academy has proven to be highly successful, with 165 disabled learners already having graduated and receiving certificates to attest to their formal qualifications, many of which relate to business administration programmes, an in-demand critical qualification enabling learners to apply competitively for employment positions.
Learners enrolled in the Academy are often challenged by various forms of physical disability. The learnership programmes are specifically geared towards disabled persons, with the aim of enabling these learners to successfully complete their qualification and compete in the job market. Vital support is also provided to these learners, which includes travel support, wheelchairs, and on-site medical support to help limit the physical challenges these learners often face in completing these programmes.
One learner who recently graduated and received her certificate at a formal graduation ceremony held in Randburg in October 2017, Zolile Nyembezi, expressed her joy and gratitude at having been enrolled in the Phatshoane Henney Training Academy’s learnership programme. “I have gained a lot of experience and confidence in communicating with people.” In turn Musa Msimango remarked that he was proud to have learned how to handle customers and open a business of his own.
“We look forward to seeing what these learners can achieve with their qualifications and are thankful for the opportunity to be able to assist these learners with much needed support” remarks Douglas Henney, Chair of the Phatshoane Henney Group.
