To have a better South Africa means to change our youth. To change our youth means to change the education structure. To change the education structure means to change the way the education structure receives its resources. Changing the perception of communities towards the educational structure can help in bringing about change. Service delivery in its simplicity is fundamental to our exceptional service offering.
From our inception date in 2007, it took us five years to build PSconnect. Coming from a background where we met similar issues faced by most South African learners in matric; issues of lack of career guidance, access to academic and funding institutions applications and exposure to career opportunities in the country. We wanted to create a platform that would act as a mentor for grade 7 to 12 learners who are transitioning in their careers, to select career paths most suitable for them and financial schemes particular to those paths. Our platform enables learners, parents, educators and school leaders a better way to manage the learners’ career planning. In partnership with Sci-Bono, we launched our pilot in 2016 and 6 000 learners got to use the system.

PSconnect helped me to choose a career that suits my personality. I had difficulties choosing a career that would make me happy. It saved me the trouble of choosing a course, changing, and dropping out of varsity.
The PSconnect team guided me to choose the best institution, communicating with them is quite easy. They offered me the best service in the world. The student support department was very helpful and informative, Thank you guys.
I loved how they responded to my queries, regardless of whether I qualify or not for the course I chose, It saved me from the process of waiting for two months, and getting a rejection letter from the institution.

There are so many courses that I'm interested in, and I wasn't aware they existed. PSconnect made my life easier, and saved me the time to make different applications. I thought varsity was too expensive, and my parents won't be able to afford the fees. I am able to study at any university, thanks to the funding support that they provided.
