Jumpstart is a business development programme with an emphasis on branding and marketing communication that provides learners with opportunities to start their own businesses.
The Jumpstart Business Support Unit provides ongoing business mentorship to Grade 10 and Grade 11 learners participating in the Jumpstart Programme. Such mentorship takes the form of regular visits to participating schools and the undertaking of discussions with participants on a range of subjects, from business advice to marketing tips, as well as assisting to resolve problems encountered by learners.
Patrick McGee, a leading professional photographer, provides external mentorship to Jumpstart Programme participants active in the photography/videography lines of business. His assistance and guidance takes the form of especially-arranged workshops and tutorials.(www.jumpstartza.com)
