Group Technology is committed to developing young IT talent by being
involved in the ITBLP and sponsoring a number of students every year,
The ITBLP is aimed at providing full scholarships for advanced
Information and Communication Technology training to previously
disadvantaged matriculants and graduates with a flair for technology.
An 18-month learnership programme, ITBLP 2013 will run from January 2013
until the end of June 2014. The programme is made up as follows:
• For the first 12 months, successful candidates are in residence at the training provider completing the academic component.
• Thereafter, the successful candidates complete the six-month workplace
component by being placed in Group Technology where they will be
provided with the opportunity to practically apply what they have learnt
at Belgium Campus.
All class fees, books and residential fees will be paid for by Group
Technology. Learners will also receive a monthly allowance for the
duration of the learnership.
On successful completion of the programme, learners will receive a
National Certificate: Information Technology. The ITBLP courseware
includes the following specialisation courses: System Development;
