Yes4Youth is a business-driven initiative which is breaking new ground by pioneering a partnership with government and labour, in collectively tackling a national plan to build economic pathways for black youth. The goal is for 1 million black youths to be employed by 2030.
In November, Super Tyres hosted an induction for 11 Yes4Youth candidates, who will be hosted for a full year by Super Tyres in 2020. Each candidate is set to receive a R3 500 stipend and a cell phone (a Yes4Youth requirement for communication access with the organisation that is essential in the reporting and updating process).
Super Tyres will earn B-BBEE points for their participation, and it will create an opportunity for the young candidates to be brought into the family permanently.
On Wednesday 9 October I had an Incident regarding my Audi TT RS 160km outside Bloemfontein. I had my tyre cut open by a reflector on the road on the sidewall of the tyre, thus the sludge on the Run Flat tyres did not work and I had to replace the tyre. As you know it is not an easy task to get this specific Run-flat tyre size for this specific car. With this in mind, I had 2 wonderful guys assisting me in the process and I would just like to highlight the fact that they are incredibly hard workers and definitely go the extra mile to assist their clients
Personally I would like to thank Vincent Pienaar and Wesley from Super-Tyres for their super assistance, great personalities, and wonderful work ethic. They made an incredibly frustrating situation bearable.
Once again thank you very much to these 2 gentlemen, they are a definite asset to your company.
For the past two years, Super Tyres has been running learnerships in Wholesale and Retail Management NQF 4. This provides opportunities to those who were previously unemployed and allows them to complete a qualification while earning an income.
This qualification lays the foundation for the development of management qualifications across various sectors and industries. It specifically develops management competencies required by learners in any occupation, particularly those who are currently operating as junior managers. The qualification introduces key terms, rules, concepts, principles and practices of management that will enable learners to be informed managers in any occupation. It has also been developed to enable managers, or prospective managers, to access higher education and provide flexible access to life-long learning.
The scope of management covers four domains: leadership, self-management, people management and management practices. This qualification addresses each of these domains with generic competencies, thereby enabling learning programmes to be contextualised for specific sectors and industries. This qualification provides opportunities for people to transfer between various specialisations within management. This will therefore enable management competencies to be strengthened, and enable managers to better manage systems, processes, resources, self, teams and individuals in various occupations. It is intended to empower learners to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes and values required to operate confidently as individuals in the South African economy and to respond to the challenges of the economic environment and changing world of work. Ultimately, this qualification is aimed at improving the productivity and efficiency of future managers within all occupations in South Africa.
On Wednesday the 6th of
March 2019, a Graduation Ceremony was held for our sponsored ABET Learners and
the Learners who completed the Further Education & Training Certificate in
Wholesale & Retail Management NQF 4.
The Adult Education and Training (AET) programme is a passion
project that Media Works (who were contracted by Super Tyres) has been
implementing for the past 23 years, equipping learners with vital communication
and numerical skills.
Their holistic approach to education ensures that our learners are
not just equipped with basic literacy and mathematical skills, but that they
develop the life skills necessary to apply the knowledge to their roles within
life and the company. This formal learning and training undertaken by adults
for the improvement of their knowledge and skills is for personal development,
further learning and/or employment. This learning has resulted in a General
Education and Training Certificate.
