Matriculants from all over South Africa will receive their results on 5th January 2018. Today the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) has reported a 98.76% matric pass rate for 2017. Yet the unemployment of the youth in South Africa is an endemic problem despite the improving matriculation rate.
Today the decision on what to do after matric seems like an overwhelming decision for many matriculants.
At LGIT Smart Solutions our “Mind the Gap” programme is aimed to help young adults get clear on their purpose, ensure that their career / study choice is aligned with their values, and gain workplace readiness skills.

We are accelerating into a life/work future with more uncertainty than ever before.
