The Challenge

Education in South Africa is intended to be accessible to everyone. Many existing TVETs & FET’S are training students only to certify them without any jobs/employment at the tenure of a rigorous 36 months. The student graduates as a Motor Mechanic or Diesel Technician or Electrical Mechanic. Global trends show that big Automotive multinational companies encourage specialization by System or componetry. Knowledge is Your K.E.Y Academy recognizes the macro and micro economic challenges preventing many a Youth and adult from accessing this education and seeks to provide the K.E.Y that can alleviate these challenges whilst also bridging the unemployment gap to the African continent. Aligning with the country’s National development goals, KiYK recognizes the importance of developing specialization & incubation among qualified technicians and artisans.

KiYK, through established partnerships provides working and proven entrepreneurial models. The incubation programs kick off with elementary diagnosis of the candidate through a pre-assessment tool that includes both Technical and Practical questions. The strengths and capabilities of the candidate are managed through mentorship and coaching methods accelerating the individual/candidate into their preferred and promising specialization pathway.
