The I Am Youth online learning platform launched, and it’s jam-packed with courses to equip yourself to be the best candidate when applying for a job – and it’s cheaper than going to the movies! SpecCon Holdings, a SETA [Skills Education Training Authority] accredited institution, develops and maintains the courses.

The platform is available to all for only R150 a year, and it offers a wide range of courses. It’s for any person who wants to empower themselves through accessible and cost-effective education.  There’s something for everybody, and the courses are scaled. For example, a high school pupil may want basic excel skills, a tertiary student may want intermediate excel skills while an entry-level-employee adult may want advanced excel skills. It’s up to you. You can even take a course to master your K53 learners’ licence!

The best news for South Africans who don’t want to spend cash on data during online learning is that you don’t need any. The only data you’ll need is when you register.

The R100/year online learning deal

Yes, you read that right. You can study any course anytime for a once-off fee of R100 per year. Think of it as a yearly subscription where you only top up once a year. That gives you enough time to save up for your next top-up. Our platform offers courses such as:

  • Project Management
  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Information Technology
  • Basic to advanced Microsoft Word, Outlook, and Excel Skills
  • K53 learners’ licence

We also have Entrepreneurship courses pertinent to all business fields. If you’re going to apply for your learners, license then you can practice for the K53 test on our site too. With access to redoing the test repeatedly, you’re likely to ace that test! To make sure, in case you aren’t, you don’t have to pay for each course. Yup! You can study as many of these courses as are relevant to you for that once-off fee. On average, completing each course can take between 3 to 6 months. It depends on which course you decide to do and on how dedicated you are to completing each one.

Online learning using zero data

Our programme offers a zero data rating, which means you won’t have to use your data to complete any of our courses. It only requires data when you sign in. Once you’re logged in, all content is accessible with no data depletion drama. With data draining faster than water from the tap, you’ll want to bolt for this sweet deal where you can save money and study for however long you want.

If you’ve got a smartphone, you’re all set. Unfortunately, zero data rating is only possible on a smartphone. If you’re using a laptop or PC, you need a stable connection to Wi-Fi or enough data on your phone to hotspot.

The chatbot 

e-Learny, the online learning Chatbot, is available 24/7 to assist you. You’ll find it at the bottom right corner of your screen, and all you do is click on it to interact. It will help answer any basic administrative-related queries you may have. The system is a continuous work in progress. Therefore, if you have more comprehensive administrative queries, e-Learny will forward these to support staff.

They will contact you after receiving your information from e-Learny. It’s best to start with e-Learny. Alternatively, scroll down the screen to see contact details for the support staff and send an e-mail that way.

Online learning accreditation 

The online courses are offered by an institution that SETA accredits. However, once you complete the course, you don’t receive credits. If you would like to receive accreditation for completing the course, please get in touch with SpecCon Holdings to find out how you can apply for their final examination. Once you have passed the examination, you will receive accreditation and an official certificate. Please bear in mind that fees apply to this process.

Ultimately, getting access to quality content that increases your skills and chances for employment is a big win. Especially when considering the yearly fee. It is a great start and truly worth investing in. After you’re done and can afford to get accreditation, certainly, do it!

Take your future into your hands

We are excited to help you take your future into your own hands. South Africa has an alarmingly high unemployment rate, especially among young people. Furthermore, data is expensive, so this is a great opportunity to equip yourself with the education and skills you need to find a job or grow your knowledge in the workplace.

  1. Name and Surname

If you first want to get a feel for the platform and the courses, then try it free of charge for ten days before paying the R100 fee! For more information about the eLearning platform, listen to the podcast below with I AM Youth chief Given Masilela.

Self-improvement with retrospection and introspection

Practising retrospection and introspection regularly is an indispensable skill for self-improvement, and it won't cost you a bag of money. You are a living being who is constantly changing. It's the result of your surroundings, the content you consume and the people you are exposed to daily. Most of us can reflect, pick out what’s funky, and correct our actions. Making time for reflection helps you identify areas that need […]
