Supporting education in South Africa
Our CSI strategy is aimed at facilitating the empowerment of talented individuals within a defined continuum of interventions including bursaries and other programmes through school and university to the workplace, so that they may realise their potential.
In a quest to create a meaningful legacy for Investec and the communities within which we operate, we have identified education as a key focus area in CSI. The employment of well-educated individuals is vital to business success. Education is equally important for the long-term economic growth prospects of our country.
English, Maths and Science skills
Short-term requirements demand tertiary education skills, but in the longer term, the schooling system should generate learners, who are competent in English, Maths and Science with an aspiration to proceed beyond Matric.
