Playground Academy, School of IT

Education is the key to success and a life-long pursuit. We learn from one another, from industry leaders, from our mentors and from the newbies in the company. We have partenered with Tshwane University of Technology to create a unique leanership targeted at previously disadvantaged youth, particularly those living in rural areas. We provide free training and internationally recognized certificates to enable our graduates to excel in the corporate world and to bridge the high demand for skilled IT professionals in South Africa. The programme runs for three to six months in which students are trained to become competent in Software Development, Business Analysis, Test Analysis, and Scrum. After successful completion of the course, students are then placed at Play IT as interns for one year to further solidify their knowledge and prepare them for the corporate world.
