We believe there’s an enormous amount of growth potential in South Africa. By committing ourselves to closing the skills gap in the technology sector, we believe our efforts form a vital part of combatting youth unemployment.

Through our specially designed Programmes and Learnerships, we provide youth with an opportunity to upskill themselves in various in-demand technologies. This acquisition of scarce, vital skills affords them a greater chance of employment.

Some of these Programmes and Learnerships include:

Cloud Engineering Trainee Programme

In 2021, in partnership with one of our clients, we launched our very first Cloud Learnership programme. So far, our trainees have managed to attain 12 AWS certifications between them. This was achieved while doing practical training in various disciplines and working with their mentors on client engagements. We are very proud of our trainees and look forward to seeing them thrive in their respective careers.

FinOps Learnership

We launched a FinOps Trainee Learnership programme in November 2021. The aim of this Learnership is to instil the disciplines of FinOps in the trainees; defined as “the operating model for the Cloud, driven by a combination of systems, best practices and culture to increase the ability to understand Cloud costs, and making trade-offs.”

Vaxowave Technology Learnership

As specialists in multi-cloud solutions and technology transformations, Vaxowave is acutely aware of the scarcity of Cloud skills in the market. By launching our Technology learnership, we hope to assist in closing these gaps. The programme provides trainees with instrumental knowledge on Cloud Computing; Data, Cyber Security, Automation, Site Reliability Engineering, DevOps, FinOps and Programming fundamentals.
