A Record-Breaking Learner Graduation for LFP Training
500 students were honoured during LFP Training’s quarterly graduation ceremony which took place at Apollo Hotel in Randburg on the 5th and 6th of April. The graduation ceremony was the company’s biggest to date and recognised learners with full competencies who successfully completed their courses in 2017.
As the largest privately-owned FET college in South Africa and accredited by SSETA, LFP Training trains up to 1, 500 learners weekly at our campus in Randburg and boasts a higher than norm industry pass rate. Our learnerships have grown in popularity and in February, more than 300 learners were signed up in just three days (50% more than in January).
We are also pleased to announce that the company has outgrown its first premises which now operates solely as a training campus and opened a new head office in Randburg in January 2018. As of April, this year, an additional training campus in Randburg and an office in Cape Town will open to accommodate the high demand.
By partnering with corporates, unemployed and disabled learners each receive learnerships and a stipend during their studies. Through education and mentorship, these learners can potentially find employment and enrich their standards of living. Not only for its clients, LFP Training has retained many of its learners who today form part of its 90-plus team members.
Many students have walked through LFP Training’s doors, each with their own story, and LFP has become part of their history. While unemployment remains alarmingly high and inequality is still an issue that we face each day, there is no better feeling than knowing that LFP Training plays a part in making a difference.
