Our journey to success

Contributing in addressing the skills shortage of employable graduates in the ICT market

Contributing to Transformation

By creating a pool of employable graduates with relevant ICT skills and competencies applicable in various market segments that will enable them to participate and contribute to a sustainable and competitive South African economy.

Our history

T-Systems South Africa spearheaded the development of the ICT Academy in 2003 in order to contribute in addressing the ICT skills shortage in South Africa and made a positive difference in the lives of young individuals who never would have had the opportunity to further their studies.  Since its inception 1,824 graduates were enabled with internationally recognised ICT qualifications, with a 95% pass rate and more than 85% employment rate in ICT related fields for graduates.

The ICT Academy programme is registered with the MICT Seta and is aligned with South African Government legislation.  We make use of Training Excellence as assessor and moderator to ensure we adhere to the unit standards as specified by the Seta.  Other partners of the ICT Academy include Microsoft, SAP and CompTIA.

The T-Systems ICT Academy moved into their new premises in the heart of Johannesburg during 2014. This world class training facility currently has 166 students from previously disadvantage backgrounds and we have 28 students of 3 regions and are busy finalising our programme for 20 students living with disability.
