Work 4 a Living challenges the belief that “things will always be this way”.

This 14-day job-readiness workshop provides practical training and a new, positive framework from which individuals can find employment. By addressing two key frustrations experienced by employers: a lack of excellence and the attitude of entitlement, W4AL delivers valuable employees to the workplace. Because they have become a valuable asset, the door to employment opens for W4AL graduates.

Minimal Setup Coast
Low Operation Coast
Not Reliant on Funding Based Growth

MODEL

Each W4AL center is run as a small business, most often by a hand-picked W4AL graduate. The modest enrolment fee, which creates a sense of value and is the first act in shifting ‘poverty mindset’, also creates an income model for the center.

Because centers align with schools, churches or universities for premises, start up and operational costs are minimal, supporting the long-term feasibility of each center. To ensure protection of the W4AL DNA, teachings have been captured on DVD, while trained facilitators conduct discussions, providing the dimension of human relationship.

PHASE 2 SKILLS

After successful completion of the W4AL Job Readiness course, an array of Phase 2 skills courses awaits.

These courses are conducted either from physical W4AL centers, or accessed via the  web-based ECafé. These courses provide trade-specific training in areas with high employability.

There are 30 Phase 2 skills courses to choose from, catering to individual abilities and interests. Options include SMART Finance, Cashier, Merchandising, Office Administration, Computer Skills, Barista Training, among others.
