Online Learning


GetSmarter, who offers a portfolio of over 55 online short courses to working professionals in partnership with UCT and other leading African universities, have sponsored 20 UCT short courses to the value of over R200 000 for top students graduating out of the Barn Khayelitsha.


This sponsorship is the launch of a long-term collaboration between the two organisations. Alethea Hagemann, CapaCiTi Skills Development Lead at CiTi, expands on the value this partnership will bring, “CapaCiTi values the educational opportunities presented to students through advances in technology. GetSmarter has carved out a stellar, pioneering path and we believe that with our successful track record in preparing individuals to be work ready, the strengths of both organisations can be leveraged to address the country’s skills shortage and unemployment rates.”
