The division’s core business is to facilitate business and investment training services. It provides individuals and institutions in underdeveloped areas with access to business, entrepreneurship and investment training opportunities. The Institute supports the company’s strategy to building an efficient platform that will make it easier and cost effective for underdeveloped areas to conduct business.
Existing community-based training programs are inappropriate for the underdeveloped market because they are unaccredited, and they have limited skills transfer. It is critical that the education industry and businesses make a fundamental shift to programs that have meaningful impact on local learners and emerging entrepreneurs.
Our proposed programs are structured and subsidised using a business incubation approach. This approach will reduce training cost and provide local entrepreneurs with access to affordable business support and resources. It will provide local entrepreneurs with expertise, systems and business infrastructure to become sustainable and viable businesses. The programs will provide important foundation for entrepreneurs to establish sustainable businesses. The success of the project is dependent on commitment and hard work on the part of our learners, mentors and business community. This is a vital initiative to transform the underdeveloped areas’ education system and economy by linking leaners and small businesses to increase economic opportunities that arise out of enterprise development. Entrepreneurs will be supported through local learners under Learnerships.RMK has structured the following Learnerships:
