Volkswagen of South Africa Empowers Disabled Learners
Volkswagen of South Africa has offered a lifeline to 60 disabled young
adults by launching a one-year learnership in End-User Computing,
specifically for people with disabilities. Successfully completing the
course could lead to full-time employment within the automotive
manufacturer’s national Dealer Network.

of SA
Dealer Academy Manager Helen Hemsley explained: “The
White Paper on an Integrated National Disability Strategy (1997) states
that “…an estimated 99% of disabled people are excluded from
employment on the open labour market….” as their physical access to
both services and opportunities pose vast problems.

“To help address this challenge, Volkswagen of SA, through its
Midrand-based Dealer Academy, has launched the End-User Computing

Set up with funding from a R26-million Merseta grant awarded to the
company last year, the learnership forms part of Volkswagen of SA’s
People for the Future project, a commitment to invest in a broad range
of internal and external skills development initiatives between 2006
and 2010.

The End-User Computing learnership, structured around a National
Certificate in Information Technology – End-User Computing (NQF Level 3
and SAQA accredited), consists of four months of classroom tuition
covering fundamental, core and elective studies, and an eight-month
practical workplace component.

“Dealerships within the Volkswagen
of SA
network will have the
opportunity to assist in the learners’ development by providing them
with an enriching workplace environment in which to practice their
newly acquired skills,” Mrs Hemsley added.

The programme kicked off in January and is managed by the Shangri-la
Community Development Project.
