Skills to Succeed was launched in August 2021 in recognition of the need to skill South Africans to meet the needs of an increasingly digital economy.
The initiative is delivered by National Treasury Jobs Fund, Accenture South Africa, Naspers Labs, Salesforce and CapaCiTi. It aims to increase the number of certified Salesforce candidates from communities who were historically excluded from the digital economy.
The Salesforce Economy in South Africa could generate 5 240 Jobs and $2,1-billion in new business revenue from 2018 to 2024, according to the latest IDC White Paper Addendum. This is driving increased demand for Salesforce skills in the country, and helps to ensure that Skills to Succeed graduates can find jobs.
Last week, the second cohort of 50 young, certified South African graduates, was celebrated at a graduation ceremony hosted at the CapaCiTi campus in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
