Umuzi Learnerships and short courses

Umuzi offers employed and unemployed learnerships to high potential young South Africans in Data Science; Data engineering; Web Development; UI Design; UX Strategy, Copywriting and Multimedia. These learnership opportunities drive upskilling through a formal qualification underpinned by practical, project-based work experience on real products and projects in integrated teams. The outcome is work-ready candidates with the drive and ability to add real value to their employers.

Umuzi practices Design Thinking and Agile principles to continuously innovate on our mission to help young South Africans access high value careers.

From this, we now advise organisations to be more human centered to solve their biggest challenges through our advisory practice: Umuzi Solves.
