In a quest to create 200 jobs by the end of 2020, CoGrammar has set in motion the CoGrammar Careers Programme, a tuition-free six-month coding programme.
The full-time programme, which was launched in partnership with Cape Town-based NGO Salesian Life Choices, is offered at CoGrammar’s Cape Town campus. The training is scheduled to run from 24 April – 24 October 2019, 9am – 5pm on weekdays.
According to the CEO of CoGrammar, Riaz Moola, programme delegates will develop a technology skillset that will prepare them for employment as software engineers, web developers or code quality assurance engineers, either with CoGrammar or with the company’s local or international hiring partners.
With the training programme being industry-focused and technology-job-oriented, trainees will acquire skills that are in global demand.
The programme is open to South African citizens or valid visa holders aged between 18 and 25 years, who obtained an average of 60% in English and a pass in mathematics or mathematical literature in their final year of secondary education.
Applicants need to not have work or study commitments so that they can fully commit to the programme. No prior coding skills are required, but applicants must enjoy problem-solving, be attentive to detail, communicate confidently with good writing skills, and have a positive attitude.
While the programme is tuition-free, transport to the training venue and any accommodation related expenses are the responsibility of the applicant. Applicants who are in dire need of financial assistance may apply for a limited meal and transport allowance.
Interested applicants are urged to apply online at www.cogrammar.com/apply and complete the compulsory assessments online before 7 April 2019.
