We're a community conscious company with a strong belief in good corporate citizenship so we were able to project manage an operation on this size," says Mpho Mofolo, Project Manager.

Since inception in 2008, the Learnership Programme has helped over 1500 learners nationally. With backing from Services SETA, Provantage has helped bridge the skills gap and create job opportunities for young people in the services sector. Each course lasts 12 months and learners are recruited utilizing Provantage's promoter database and recruitment systems. The Learnership Programme offers Customer Service Management, Business Management, Contact Centre Support, Financial Management and Communication Management.
