In a time when youth unemployment in South Africa has reached a staggering 55% and has even internationally a become a crisis with an estimated rate of 30%, the endeavour to assist our children to be ready for the labour market, has probably become the single biggest challenge which we as parents will need to meet.
Given that each year a child spends on the 'wrong' course at university or college will cost the parent anything between R100 000 and R130 000, the issue of proper career planning at school level is no longer a luxury, but a necessity.
More and more parents and teachers realise that a single set of tests and a feedback report are often not enough to place a teenager on place a successful career path.
Months ago SAHomeschoolers.Org was introduced to a more complete process. It is designed such that a child follows a process spanning a couple of months, under guidance of a mentor such as a parent or teacher. The process systematically prepares the child for the job market and / or further studies. The whole process is managed on web-based platform and involves both child and the mentor.
The cost of a similar program is R8500 at an external facilitator, which is reasonable in the context of youth unemployment and expensive tuition fees. SAHomeschoolers.Org however negotiated with Career Manager to provide 100 packages at R1000 each under the following conditions:
- Parents should start the process within a month after the purchase, following the details of the program which consists of weekly steps.
- The parents should be prepared to provide a monthly evaluation to Career Manager.
If Career Manager is ordered through this website, you will receive an additional R100 discount.
