By empowering SA youth with global skills, and facilitating rural growth via digital learning, T-Systems is powering the digital economy.
Global skills for south african youth
As an IT services and consulting company, T-Systems is helping young South Africans enter the digital economy.
They have done this by creating spaces, such as their ICT Academy in Johannesburg which helps students to develop relevant skills, further their careers and write both national and international exams. More than 85% of the ICT Academy students can successfully be placed in a job, according to T-Systems South Africa CEO Dineo Molefe.
But not only have they focused on the obvious urban landscape. A partnership with the Good Work Foundation has also allowed T-Systems to create a digital campus in rural Hazyview so that students can have a place to gain technical skills and work opportunities without having to leave their homes for urban centres.
