Our unemployment rate in South Africa remains very high.
One solution is to offer more business (entrepreneur) training in our schools.
But that could be a way off at the moment.
The government has way too much on it's plate to do much about it right now.
One solution would be to help our children with Small Business Training courses.
Extra-curricular learning, so to speak.
Like those offerred by Peter Carruthers at the Small Business Academy.
Although aimed at Small Business Owners, the courses are simple to understand. No "tests" or exams to pass.
No certificates to prove you qualify. Just plain LEARNING, at one's own pace.
The kids could learn (along with Mom & Dad), how to survive in a sometimes hostile environment.
Making it a Family thing.
If we learn only one lesson each day, at the end of a year we will have learned 260 NEW things.
I'm excluding weekends, that's the time for play and enjoyment with the whole family.
The courses are all online and can be accessed at any time, day or night.
Even weekends, if you really want to.
We all learn about business at our own pace.
The kids (and parents) could practice some of the skills gained on friends and family.
They'll be making money in no time. Their own pocket money.
They could even help Mom and Dad to pay for their own education.
Then they won't have to worry about the "free education" promised, if it ever becomes a reality.
Peter has been running these courses since the 90's, so he knows what he's talking about.
He is also a parent who cares very much for the future of his children.
