CUSTODIA - ECD SKILLS TRAINING
ED - LEARN2DRIVE
The Learn2Drive programme commenced in Quarter 3 of 2017, aimed at incorporating both ED and SED initiatives. Communities desperate for assistance appealed to Jasper Power to help their youth obtain their drivers' licences, thus enabling them to access possible work opportunities. In this regard, Jasper Power collaborated with two local Driving Schools (SMMEs), the municipality and members from each community.
Grade 11 and 12 learners, as well as those up to the age of 35, were encouraged to obtain their driver's licence through the Learn2Drive campaign. The aim of the campaign (currently halted due to Covid-19 issues), was to assist willing members of the community to obtain (a) their learner's licence, and (b) their driver's licence. We hope to resume the programme in due course.
Some of the key benefits of the programme have been;
• Teaching a life skill. Driving is a life skill that many are not always able to accomplish, due to the cost involved and also that the financial burden of tuition is carried by the families. This may result in the affordability for a driver’s license tuition only to occur once full-time employment is obtained.
• Teaching the youth about road safety.
• Enabling successful applicants with a valid driver’s license to source employment more successfully.
By providing the Driving Schools which are small businesses with a steady stream of customers we are supporting Enterprise Development. What is even more fantastic is that the selected driving schools represent both Tsantsabane and Kgatelopele, a great example of locals teaching locals a life skill.
