develop success skills for life and design a career path fit for the 21st century
Creative & Proactive
Preparing for a future career
requires more than getting the
best marks, learning how to write a CV and answering questions at a job interview. Without an opportunity for a journey of self-discovery as part of the secondary and tertiary education, students often lack clarity regarding their future path and as a result make random study and career choices which in turn help create a workforce that lacks focus and motivation.
The growing gap
between what education offers and what industry needs is one of the main reasons for rising youth unemployment. Academic accomplishments no longer ‘cut it’ as organisations need a different type of graduate — a self-leader who is a problem-solver, thinks outside the box and is proactive in getting things done.
Creative & Proactive
Work experience is often expected
of fresh graduates but
many end up doing work with little or no relevance to their field of study. Not realising that any workplace environment is a valuable training ground and that the knowledge and skills they gained can be applied somewhere else, young people discount the experience altogether instead of viewing it as an advantage.
To help address those concerns we have
Success Skills Program
been focusing on helping young people prepare for employment and entrepreneurship by offering our multidisciplinary insights, knowledge and experience as well as proven tools and strategies that are not taught in school.

What our clients say
Thank you for the commitment you have shown to our students through the delivery of the Success Skills Programme which we introduced last year.
The academic curriculum alone does not achieve this: it is content driven and does not teach students how to apply their skills in a real life situation, nor sufficiently encourage them to cooperate with their peers and work in teams, nor adequately promote their self esteem, as a less than perfect exam result is, in the eyes of the student, an indication of failure. Students can feel that they're in a deep hole and don't know how to find a way out.
The Success Skills Programme which you have developed teaches our young adults the soft skills needed to succeed in the 21st century. It encourages them to analyse their strengths and weaknesses and teaches them the skills necessary to address those weaknesses using specific strategies in order to turn them into strengths. It encourages them to be more socially aware, both within and out with the school community. It gives them real life opportunities to develop the skills needed in the adult world through carrying out actual projects in teams; skills like planning, time-management, teamwork and, ultimately delivery of a result. It teaches them how to apply time management and planning strategies to their academic learning in order to improve their grades. Overall it encourages them to be problem solvers and to take responsibility for their own learning and their own future. I feel that the Success Skills Programme offers vital input for our students and when partnered with the solid academic grounding which we deliver will enable our students to leave school as fully rounded individuals on the road to success.
It has been a pleasure working with you both and I wish you every success as you continue your quest to reach as many young people as possible.
