New programmes
  • Disabled children and young people, including visually impaired and those suffering from FAS (existing programmes require updating)

  • IT and computer skills development. In an increasingly digital world young people need to know how to access information “on – line” and be confident users of technology. They also need to be trained and skilled in avoiding “cyber bullying” and other abuse/addictions associated with the internet. (NB we acknowledge the previous support of Nedbank in the provision of computer hardware)

  • Entrepreneurship and Employability. A programme developing business skills, CV writing, accountancy, banking, planning, grant application. This may be in association with a bank or major employer by linking to other organisations. Engaging with retired professionals to mentor young people for awareness and practical skills development

  • Healthy eating. The availability of high sugar/fat content foods has an impact on young people’s health. A programme to provide nutritional advice, access to fresh food and simple recipes to be available.

  • Training in hospitality and tourism. This will reinforce the existing relationship with Val de Vie and/or developing new partners
