Unsure of what to do with your life? The Young Minds Entrepreneurship Programme is ideal for school leavers, current students and even graduates.
It is not uncommon for school leavers to postpone their tertiary studies because they feel they cannot commit to a career path at such a young age. Instead these learners choose to take a 'gap year'.
The idea behind the 'gap year' is that it allows young people time to explore work and life opportunities with the goal of discovering a definite career path. However in most cases this scenario is merely an ideal.
In reality 'gap year' students end up lying on the couch or stuck in dead-end jobs and never move on to pursue their career ambitions.
On the other hand there are students who discover too late that their chosen field of study is not what they want to pursue as a career.
These students end up terminating their studies before completing their course.
This results in a waste of time and money and can lead to even greater frustration and disappointment.
The Young Minds Entrepreneurship Programme aims to help you 'discover who you are and what you want to achieve'.
You will learn to define your purpose and get direction by joining the 10 month course.
The programme is also suitable for young graduates who want to create their own opportunities or learn how to start their own business.
Students will gain new management and business skills and develop an entrepreneurial mindset to identify business opportunities.
The course covers subjects like personal mastery, financial management, marketing, entrepreneurial thinking, economics, operations planning, leadership skills and more.
Student who wish to apply must have a National Senior Certificate with a minimum of 50%.
Once the course is completed you will receive a Certificate of Competence in Entrepreneurship from the University of Stellenbosch Business School.
The online registration for the Young Minds Entrepreneurship Programme is now open.
You will need to have a copy of your ID and your latest qualification (latest report) handy, in order to apply online.
