Training is held nationally.  

All JumpStart retail programmes begin with a five-day life skills course – because soft skills are just as important as hard skills. This course is composed of the following modules:  

  • Personal development
  • Self-esteem
  • Emotional development
  • Healing of the past
  • Vision and goal setting
  • Communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Work ethic and time management
  • Basic HR principles
  • Personal health
  • Job preparation

Apply online. We’ll contact you. If there’s training in your area, we’ll let you know. You’ll need 200MB data and a smartphone or computer to complete your application and online assessment.  

Job placements are not guaranteed on completion of training. 
However, JumpStart works closely with employer partners to create 
a pipeline of suitable, work-ready talent.
