COMPUTER LEARNING CENTRE

Our Computer Learning Centre Programme is designed and located to engage hard-to-reach communities otherwise unable to access opportunities to develop their IT skills to open the door for the marketplace. Our learners are of all ages, genders, and abilities.

This course provides a solid foundation for:

  1. accessing further education
  2. lifelong learning
  3. employment
  4. boosted confidence and
  5. opening up new horizons.

Our training courses run in 6-month blocks and our learners graduate with the National Certificate qualification in IT: End User Computing (this is the pathway from theoretical concepts to practical end-user experience). Learners develop skills to enable them to be equipped and prepared workers.

For those who have graduated from our End-user Computing course, we have now launched a more advanced Systems Development (Coding) Course, progressing our student’s programming skills and enhancing their future job prospects.

The skills learned in the Computer Learning Centre are scarce in South Africa, and yet in high demand. Our courses empower learners to be gainfully employed and economically active and we’ve seen a high attainment rate of graduates leaving and subsequently finding work.

As part of our CLC, students also have the opportunity to join our Work 4 A Living / Job Readiness programme. This provides key skills and mentoring to help our students find work once they complete our courses.

Here are some testimonials about the CLC courses, written by our graduates:

“There is a great need in our community for an understanding of computer literacy and I loved being a part of this great course – because it both equipped and empowered me, and also I now have the privilege of being a part of the NDU team!!”

Lizanne

“Hey – thanks to NewDay United, I now have skills to be able to pay it forward and now I also help with Hluma e-learning with the computer skills that I now have! What a privilege!”

(Hluma and e-learning are other NewDay United projects).

Avie

“CLC has opened new doors for me because I am now able to capture data especially when I am doing home visits and delivering food parcels for our elderly in this community.”

Notha

“The CLC was a safe haven for me, space where I could go and equip myself with basic computer skills and I also so enjoyed the company of the friends I made while I was there.”

Rimone

“Before CLC, I had never used the computer before – the course has helped me because I can use it now especially with the work that I do. I’m able to write reports using a computer!!”

This July 26 of our students started their new jobs!

For some, it’s an early start at 4am to get their transport to start training at 6am, but the excitement and happiness to work makes this worth it!

We are so excited for this group who were interviewed, were inducted, and have all started!

All the candidates went through our Work 4 A Living (Job Readiness) program and our End-User-Computing training.

A huge shout out to Miskyah Troth and BDCS for partnering with us.

Soon, we are looking to introduce a new qualification in systems development (coding), as this will create new work opportunities
