Applications For Printing SA Mentorship Programme in Partnership with NMM

Applications for your mentorship programme are still open and we encourage all of our members to get involved.

This innovative mentorship programme is supported by the FP&M SETA in line with its commitment to the sustainability of the Printing Industry as well as its transformation.

Why mentorship? International research indicates that people with a mentor are twice as likely to be successful in life, and businesses whose owners have a mentor are twice as likely as those without to grow, employ more people and survive longer than five years.

How does the programme work? We are partnering with the National Mentorship Movement (NMM) on implementing and coordinating the programme. NMM will set up a Printing SA version of its mentorship platform, on which the mentors and mentees will register, receive onboarding material, and be matched by NMM, schedule their first meeting and be sent surveys to monitor progress through the process.
