Applications for The Fix SDC Learnership Programme 2021 are officially open, the Skills Development Corporation (SDC) together with the Fix Scholarship announced last week.
Founder of The Fix Scholarship, Fikile ‘Fix’ Moeti, broadcaster and social entrepreneur, is a firm believer in youth empowerment through education: “I believe in making education opportunities available for female entrepreneurs in Africa that want to pursue innovative solutions for urgent social development challenges that create social change within their communities.”
“We’re looking for young, female entrepreneurs with the potential and drive to succeed and improve their business skills,” says Daniel Gibhard, CEO of SDC. “We love being able to pay it forward, as one of the most precious gifts any human can receive is education. We ran an incredibly successful programme last year where we managed to place the candidates in full time employment whilst they continue to be part of SDC’s skills development learnerships.”
This year, executive business coach and leadership specialist, Sonja Shear will also be working with the selected candidates throughout their time on the learnership as a mentor focusing on self-development and self-awareness, designed specifically for The Fix SCD Learnership Programme 2021.
SDC, who has established a corporation that specifically focuses on helping businesses meet the skills development requirements stipulated by the Skills Development Act, will be offering the following course options for the applicants of The Fix Scholarship under the mentorship of Sonja Shear and Fikile Moeti.
- Wealth Management (NQF level 4)

“Draw your strength from the exact environment that threatens to pull you down,” says Moeti. “This determination and attitude, coupled with skill and talent will drive change.”
