The HCET bursary programme
The HCET offers bursaries to learners in its catchment area who wish to continue their formal education and training beyond Grade 9, and whose parents earn less than R10 000 a month.
Bursaries are granted to students at high schools, technical training colleges and other training institutions as well as universities.
The Trust has taken active steps over a number of years to identify suitable education and training institutions. Bursary holders are supported and mentored. If necessary, the Trust helps them to find their first jobs.
A total of 178 bursaries have been granted over the past 21 years. The success rate has been very high, and 87% of all bursary holders are gainfully employed.
