What is WordPrenticeship?
”WordPrenticeship” is a training program founded by Mr. Jonguxolo Wiseman Mbodla in the year 2020. The word ”WordPrenticeship” is a derivative of the other two words, ‘[[WordPress]]’ and ‘[[Apprenticeship]]’. The program is aimed at training people (”WordPrentices”) Web Development tools and techniques, using the world’s most popular open-source Content Management System, WordPress. Jonguxolo Wiseman Mbodla is the founder and CEO of Jongi Brands (Pty) Ltd, a company registered in South Africa as the Holding Company of its array of wholly-owned subsidiaries, viz (Jongi Digital, Primitia Hosting, and LoxionMart). He is one of those who strongly believe that being educated is not exclusive to the school/ling system as many people perceive it to be. School system can only be regarded as one of the (formal) methods through which learning may be acquired, as contrasted to more other (informal) methods like self-teaching. Jonguxolo Wiseman Mbodla never attended a formal high technical school/college, yet he managed to start a Tech company with the knowledge he acquired through self-teaching. This is where the concept of Wordprenticeship is embedded. Mr. Mbodla has a vision where people of all ages, may adopt a similar mindset and start to understand that everyone has the potential to do more than they have previously imagined.
Who is the program aimed at?
Wordprenticeship program is aimed at addressing the issue of Job scarcity, particularly Youth Unemployment. As much as the program is initiated in South Africa, fellow young and old people from all over the world are free and welcome to signup to the program as and when applications are open, through virtual means.
