Meet Lungile, our TLC Global bursary student for 2017.

We are proud to introduce Lungile Zuma as our TLC Global bursary student for 2017. Lungile matriculated in 2016 at Asibemunye High School. She enjoyed all her subjects as well as playing Netball, and was a member of the Choir. She is keen to better her life through education.

Identified as a deserving candidate, she has been awarded a bursary by the TLC Education Trust to study further, in line with the Trust’s mandate to support educational needs of black women under 35. She has joined one of our clients on a Learnership programme, studying towards a General Education and Training Certificate (GETC): Food and Beverage Handling Processes NQF Level 1. This qualification focuses on key skills around personal and product safety, food handling and problem-solving. The Learnership is a 12-month course with 30% theory and 70% real world practical work experience.

Equipping young people with hands-on experience in the workplace is essential to helping them become more employable, ultimately giving them the initial start they need for successful careers. We at TLC are pleased to have Lungile as one of TLC Education Trust’s bursary students, and wish her well in her studies. We know she will make a great success of it!
