Learning never stops, the finish line is never crossed. We have the goal of helping learners from all corners of the earth to achieve the career of their dreams. Our goal is to provide learners with the same quality of learning from the foundation phase and then guide them on their way to a career, or vocation for the jobs of tomorrow referred to as the fourth industrial revolution. The schooling system has had very little change in the last 100 years and still educates learners in a factory type fashion, each with their own desk in rows. The work of tomorrow is about technology, collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship. The Advantage Learn class of tomorrow will be enriched not only with teaching but career guidance and opportunities through our collaboration with tertiary education providers and companies who want to invest in the workforce of tomorrow.
We have a hard-working and diverse team, young and old, with a wide range of interests including running, music, surfing, food, video gaming, travelling, beer, hiking, languages and obviously learning! Although most of us are in Durban (SA), we are a digital-first company with people working remotely as well as in-office, and our time together is always fun.
