“How did our son get into IT?
Post matric, our son tried a number of options, however none of them were successful. As a family , my wife , his two siblings and myself were concerned. At this stage his self-esteem was very low bearing in mind that his siblings were academically successful.
Our eldest son who knew ITCA when he studied abroad, suggested the IT route, thus we approached ITCA together with our son, at the onset it appeared as though this was what he wanted to do.
What was the reception at ITCA?
The reception was exceptional, right from the receptionist, marketing personnel to the principal dealer. We felt that we were in the right place. However as both my wife and I are laymen we depended upon them to steer us in the right direction.
Our son enrolled as a full time student.
What feedback did we get from both ITCA & our son and what did we think of the feedback?
The feedback we got from both ITCA and our son indicated to us that:
Our son enjoyed what he was currently doing
His confidence levels have been raised
He had a vision of where he wants to be at some stage.
Overall, whatever interactions had taken place, they have had a positive impact in his life.
Based on the above we felt that our son was at the right hands and the decision to leave him at the hands of ITCA was the right decision.
What has subsequently happened?
As we all know, our son was taken up as a learner at BSI Steel, he has since moved up to JHB on a permanent position.
In terms of responsibility that has been assigned to him lately, two or three times he has been assigned to perform duties outside South African borders, this can only be attributed to his competence, trustworthy and success, sourced at ITCA”
