I would like to introduce to you, the IOS group. The IOS Group started in 2001 as a training service provider with Services Seta accreditation, led by John and Amanda O’Connor. They train students via an online courses. Students complete their courses using their mobile devices and write an exam online. Once complete with the online courses they do their practical’s at a company, which then allows them to qualify for a National Diploma.
The IOS group was looking for SME’s in Gert Sibande District in Mpumalanga to host interns for a minimum period of 3 months. I partnered with the IOS group on this initiative to train up an intern in back office activities, which I currently struggle keeping up with.
The IOS Group has partnered with the UIF, where the UIF provides a small Stipend for the intern to cover transport costs to the Host company. Host employers have the option of employing the Intern after the 3 month practical’s or can be a reference for the Intern, when the Intern applies for a job in the market. Thus there is no obligation by the Host company to employee the Intern on a full time basis. However, let us coach and position our interns on how to work in the working industry and carry out their responsibilities to the best of their abilities.
As a Host company, we need to onboard the Intern to the company’s ways of work,
safety etc. The Intern may utilize resources in the company to perform their
work. The Host company is not obligated to +pay the intern, as it is covered by
the UIF. So if you are interested kindly contact the project coordinator at IOS
group directly. Veenay Binnideen firstname.lastname@example.org 0837787005
We would like to appreciate Bhekumuzi Nkosi for spending a day with us.
