Invitation to act as Host Employer

The Mpumalanga Economic Growth Agency (MEGA) in partnership with the Department of Labour embarked on an initiative to integrate unemployment insurance beneficiaries into the labour market through various training interventions.

The programme will commence with training beneficiaries in the Gert Sibande District of Mpumalanga in the following qualifications: • FET General Management – NQF Level 4; • Food and Beverage Handling Process – NQF Level 1. MEGA appointed Itumeleng Training Solutions, a member of the IOS Group, as implementation partner to implement the programme. Itumeleng Training Solutions will be responsible for the end-to-end implementation of the programme, including training and work placement of the learners. To ensure the success of this initiative, host employers are sought to accommodate learners to get the requisite workplace experience for the above training programmes over a period of 12 months. Learners will be paid a monthly stipend for the duration of the programme and will not require any payment from host employers. Learners will be subject to the relevant workplace policies and practices of the host employer. Host employers that are interested in being a partner on such an important strategic initiative are requested to complete the attached letter of intent, indicating the number of learners it can accommodate for their workplace experience. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Tammy-Lee van Niekerk at Itumeleng Training Solutions at (012) 347 2594, or e-mail her at
