The first steps towards a successful adult life involves more than just financial support. We have therefore included the following services in our Beneficiary Care:

Iteke Learnership Programme

In keeping with Fedgroup's vision to go beyond fund payments to providing true care, we created the Iteke learnership programme. The Iteke programme is open exclusively to our beneficiaries and provides matriculants with work experience and the tools to make important career decisions. This bridges the all-important gap between completing their schooling and finding gainful employment for those who do not have the resources to complete a tertiary education.
