CAPITEC AND EDUCATE24 MAKE ONLINE LEARNING AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE
Leading SA bank, Capitec and Educate24 team up to offer South Africans affordable, high-quality online learning so that you can have the tools for a successful career. And, if you’re a Capitec client, you’ll find more savings await…
Earning a tertiary education is not always within reach for a large portion of the country who simply don’t have the time or money to invest in long-term qualifications. Nawal du Toit, CEO of Educate24, and Capitec understood this great need and teamed up to empower South Africans through education.
After an extensive career in the corporate retail world, Nawal chose to rather pursue a meaningful new chapter – helping others to live better through education. Nawal launched Educate24: an online learning platform that offers high-quality short courses at affordable prices, as well as a fully integrated career service.
“The platform offers an opportunity to upskill yourself by doing a short course. You can do the course in your own time and at your own pace”, explains Nawal. The best part? Educate24’s online courses are extremely affordable. “We wanted to make sure that people could do their courses on their mobile phones. We made sure that every single course that you do will use only between R20 to R30 worth of data to complete a full course”.
On Educate24’s site, you get a Free Personal Management For Success course, Smart CV to create a digital resume and can apply for Careers24 job openings, or gift a course to some in need. It’s as simple as that.
Educate24’s greatest priority is education above all. Because of their shared vision to help South Africans live better, Capitec partnered with Educate24 to reach as many future learners as possible. Through Capitec’s Live Better Benefits, Capitec clients receive a massive 50% saving on over 90 online short courses.
There’s nothing better than the confidence boost upskilling yourself can bring. Whether you want to improve your language skills, learn how to use Microsoft Excel, or run your own Spaza shop, Capitec will help you take on any challenge with their Educate24 Live Better Benefit. All you need is a cellphone and a R20 data bundle.
Simply use your Capitec card to sign up and pay for your courses directly on the Educate24 website to enjoy your immediate saving.
One person who has achieved his dreams is Damian Mitchell, a Capitec client who used the Educate24 platform to earn his certificate in soccer coaching through a course that was designed by a FIFA accredited coach.
Damian’s dreams became a reality after he discovered the immense benefits and discounts you can receive if you’re a Capitec client. “My passion for football has come along since I was four-years-old. I’ve been playing all my life and I’ve been fortunate enough now to teach kids how to play football also”.
As Damian explains, “Being a Capitec client has been really amazing”. The more courses you do , the more you keep saving. The discount is applicable every time you pay for a course with your Capitec card.
With the world at his soccer boots, Damian doesn’t plan on stopping here. Now that Capitec has empowered him to become the Head Coach of Fives Soccer Schools in Pinehurst, Damian plans to continue his education – all thanks to Capitec and Educate24 who are determined to go the extra mile to help the next generation of students achieve their wildest dreams.
There is no greater gift than the gift of education. And with a chance this good, Nawal doesn’t want you to miss out. “It gives you the opportunity to really take ownership and to plan your future”.
