Summary

What we do

We are a community that creates value by providing young people access to high-level careers through innovative education.

Education isn't keeping up with change and youth bear the brunt of it. Too many young people don't realise their potential. They are either unemployed (shockingly around 50% in our home country, South Africa) or underemployed (stuck behind cash registers or in call centres). Current education is too slow, expensive, uninspiring, siloed, and increasingly irrelevant for future careers.

We believe most young people learn best on the job. Our learnership is based in a real working environment, 9-5pm, five days a week. Full-time, seasoned industry professionals, act as managers and mentors. We’ve learned that the closer our working environment matches that of the future employers, the more likely our recruits are to succeed. We’re continuously evolving to be more human-centred and Agile.

Umuzi offers a paid one-year learnership that produces high-calibre, entry-level digital and creative professionals in data science, coding, design, copywriting, strategy and multimedia. We have designed our working environment to simulate a real-world work experience, which means that our recruits adapt to employment with ease. Over 80% of our graduates get top jobs.
