New beginnings….RelatED Education gets boost from Gateway Capital

RelatED Education is proud to announce its partnership with leading private education provider Gateway International Education.

The relationship will enable RelatED to extend its training offerings to include a number of new learning platforms, including online and mobile, as well as provide access to Gateway’s extensive management expertise.

Since its establishment in 2011, RelatED Education has trained over 8 700 learners and nearly 4 000 managers, impacting over 35 retail groups across more than 250 communities in South Africa, largely in the wholesale and retail sector.  We also employ close to 60 people.

RelatED Education impacts the South African economy one life at a time through continuous work ready education from learnerships to tertiary.

“Our growth now necessitates a partner with the necessary management expertise and training infrastructure to enable us to accelerate our training offerings, particularly in the areas of youth development and work readiness, across a number of industry sectors,” says Leigh Blochlinger, CEO of RelatED Education

Gateway, was established in 2007 with the objective of developing and expanding world-class international-standard education in Africa. The organisation has built an enviable track record of investment in private education, including a founding investment in the largest Cambridge curriculum distance learning institution in South Africa.

For Gateway, the stake in RelatED Education means that it can now add vocational training to its suite of educational expertise.

“Of the more than 10 million South Africans between the ages of 15 and 24, nearly one third, or more than 3 million people, are currently not in employment, education or training.  As private sector, we need put mechanisms in place to address this and quickly. Our goal is to invest in and help grow premium-calibre institutions in the skills and tertiary education sectors. We firmly believe that an ever-expanding wave of truly educated young people will bring about real change in our country and on our continent.” said Marcus Oshry, CEO of Gateway Capital.

“RelatED Education has a proven track record and ability to assess, recruit and train young learners both in urban and rural areas, and turn these youngsters into impressive leaders in the workplace,” he added.

“We look forward to supporting them and accelerating their endeavours,” Oshry said.
