Hi5 For Youth

The 1-year Hi5 Professional Development Course is designed by Jobortunity and trains youth that are motivated to obtain employment.

This Hi5 course boosts students’ professional development and life. Our graduates call it: “Hi5 is the key for life”! After 1 year, graduates have the knowledge, skills and right attitude to obtain and keep a job.

The training and personal coaching instill the skills needed for youth to successfully engage with the constantly-changing professional world.

The 1-year Hi5 Professional Development Course consists of two phases:

Phase l: The first 4 months are an intensive Hi5 training of 5 days a week from 9am till 5pm at Jobortunity. These months we focus on all the Hi5 fingers in order to obtain the right attitude and knowledge to work in a company.

Phase ll: After successfully finishing phase l the students start their 8-month apprenticeship (mafunzo kwa vitendo kazini) in a company. This is a professional field training through the support of the supervisor at the company and Jobortunity. Students are trained in a specific profession; via on-the-job training combined with accompanying study. During the 8-month apprenticeship (mafunzo kwa vitendo kazini) the employers teach the students the skills they need for their profession. One week per month the students return to Jobortunity to obtain classroom Hi5 training. This way the knowledge they learn in the classroom can immediately be applied at the apprenticeship (mafunzo kwa vitendo kazini).
