Skills development initiatives in the communities where we deliver our services is to ensure that we build a skills pool that supports economic development.

Placing Learners at the Center of Technology

People Technology Processes (PTP) Integrated, in partnership with the Media, Information and Communication Technologies Sector Education and Training Authority, recently concluded a skills development initiative in Mbombela.

The rollout of this project was done in conjunction with the Advance Training Technology Institute (ATTI), a training college that specializes in IT-related learning programmes.

Under the initiative, a total of 15 unemployed learners from the surrounding areas participated in an NQF level 5 learnership programme in systems support for a year.

The course exposed learners to both theoretical and practical, on-the-job training, and they received in-person experience with a dedicated employer for the duration of the programme.

Sign Language for Everyone

September is the International Month for Deaf People. It serves as an important reminder of the ongoing need to support and protect the linguistic identity and cultural diversity of all deaf people and sign language users. According to the World Federation of the Deaf, there are approximately 72 million deaf people worldwide.

There are also other commemorative periods in September. The last week of the month marks the International Week of the Deaf. It was first celebrated in September 1958, and has since evolved into a global movement of deaf unity and concerted advocacy to raise awareness of the issues deaf people face in their everyday lives.

World Day of the Deaf is held in September, too — on the last Sunday of the month — and serves to recognise the rights of deaf people the world over, and emphasise the importance of upholding these rights.

As an inclusive organisation, People Technology Processes (PTP) Integrated is playing its part in bridging the gap between sound and silence. We participated in several activities throughout the International Month for Deaf People and on World Day of the Deaf. Our efforts were designed to encourage our people to come together both for educational and personal deaf awareness.

We also partnered with the Ekurhuleni School of the Deaf, and hosted a day of engagement between our employees and the school’s children. On the day, all our employees tried to communicate without using any sound. The experience was profound, as it allowed us to put ourselves in the shoes of the young learners with whom we were interacting.

Our approach to our CSI initiatives is to care for and support the most vulnerable communities in South Africa. As part of this, we are actively advocating for sign language to be taught in schools. We believe that this will help South Africa to become a truly inclusive society
