Support-a-School (SAS) Programme

About the Programme
  • SAS provides a solution to low administrative capacity in disadvantaged schools. Having understaffed and overworked admin teams at schools impacts the general performance of the schools and places strain on the teachers, as they are required to perform the administrative role in addition to teaching their classes.
  • SAS addresses youth unemployment by providing a year of funded education with valuable work experience to deserving unemployed South Africans who cannot afford to study.
  • Corporates can support SAS students as a high impact, sustainable Skills Development solution for unemployed learners that fits their transformation goals. SAS learners are young, unemployed, black South Africans as defined by the Amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice.



The way it works


  • The LLC Academy recruits unemployed learners who are enrolled on a one year programme.
  • SAS learners access NQF level training through accredited training providers who provide part time, distance learning programmes in the field of business administration and computer literacy.
  • The learners are placed in schools to work as admin assistants for the year.
  • The LLC Academy provides coaching and support to learners to develop them holistically.
