Educated Members Programme

MISA believes that every employee in the retail motor industry opens up more doors for the future if they have obtained their National Senior Certificate (Matric) in South Africa where youth unemployment remains one of the biggest obstacles to economic success.


Martlé Keyter, Chief Executive Officer: Operations, says that is why the Union’s Educated Members Programme assists 300 eligible members on the Bronze option with R1 000 each to obtain a Matric or Matric equivalent qualification. Claims are subjected to criteria and allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. Keyter says after the Matric exams nearly one million young South Africans will enter the labour market this year.


“Although the graduate unemployment rate has declined year on year, the overall youth unemployment rate has had an upward trend. South African’s unemployment rate is sitting at 32,7%, and about 30.4 million people are living below the poverty line. South Africa currently suffers a 61% youth unemployment rate. If you want to build a better future for yourself, you will have to start with by obtaining your Matric qualification,” says Keyter.
