Strategic partnership.

Investec, through its Corporate Social Investment (CSI) division has partnered with Brainwave Careers (NPC) to create CareerXplora, a low data mobile website and WhatsApp chat platform (057 814 5978) aimed at assisting high school learners with career development, guidance, and support.


A new approach to career development, guidance, and support.

Career development is a progressive process that facilitates the acquisition of attitudes, skills, and knowledge to assist learners in better understanding themselves while exploring viable higher education and career opportunities post Grade 12. There are both vast economic and social benefits for the South-African economy when learners are supported and empowered to make effective and calculated transitions from high school to further tertiary education, training, and employment opportunities after having completed Grade 12.

“Do the best that you can until you know better, then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou
