Umuzi is a Johannesburg based organisation that works with top employers to support young people to access high-value tech and creative careers.
Young people can discover high-value tech and creative careers through our community content platform, Ez’Ntswembu. Anyone interested can start learning immediately through our online learning application process. The most successful candidates from our online learning are interviewed and assessed in-person.
If selected, these young people enter our full-time, paid, on-the-job training programme where they learn human-centered design, Agile, and specialise in a scarce tech and creative skill, including:
- Data Science & Data Engineering
- Web Development
- UX Strategy
- UI Design and Copywriting
Included in the programme is 3 months of work experience at a leading employer. We continue to support our alumni to reach their full potential through Umuzi Plug, our talent recruitment offering.
