Learnership Training Courses At Action

Learnership training courses are available at our Gauteng and KZN branches. Our tuition centers have tutors, equipment and adaptive software for blind and disabled learners. Learnership training courses benefit both learner and businesses in South Africa.

Action offers microsoft Office Specialist Certificates, which is the best certified qualification. Once blind and disabled learners complete training and receive a MS Office Specialist Certificate, the learner moves onto advanced training such as:

  • CRM (Customer Relations Management Systems)
  • Call center training – with focus on out-bound call centers

We believe in training and motivating learners to become independent members of society. Blind people can do many jobs if given the opportunity and they make loyal and efficient workers. Blind people are employed in a variety of jobs – just like sighted people are. People with vision loss can perform tasks of many types within many positions, such as:

  • marketing
  • human services
  • business management
  • administration
  • health science
  • law
  • agriculture

There are many more jobs not listed that people with vision loss can perform. Teens and adults with vision loss can be employed in occupations across all industries of work.

Visually impaired teens and adults do not always have opportunities to learn about career and job options like most. This is where a learnership is so beneficial as it includes on the job training, shadowing other employees and gaining experience in career advancements. These opportunities increase a blind learners job awareness, including:

  • awareness of tasks within a business
  • awareness of salaries offered
  • awareness of the job interview process
  • awareness of capabilities and accommodations

Learnership training courses is an important catalyst of discipline. When a person with vision loss enters into a learnership they gain:

  • independance as a member os society
  • postive attitude to life
  • experience in the work place
  • entrepeneur skills

If you are a business owner and would like to gain BBBEE/BEE points, you are not only changing a persons life but you are adding value to society as a whole.
