Unemployment in South Africa is at its highest level ever. The youth aged 15 to 24 years are the most vulnerable in the South African labour market with the unemployment rate among this age group at 55,2%. Job creation is a more urgent political, social, and economic issue than ever. TSIBA has long believed that starting and sustaining successful small and medium-size businesses is the best, long-term sustainable way to do this. For this reason, practical business skills and entrepreneurship has always been a core focus of TSIBA since we started planning our Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Leadership and Entrepreneurship in 2004.

The Ignition Academy builds on and supports this work of the TSIBA Business School.

The TSIBA Ignition Academy (Pty) Ltd has a Level 2 BEE rating and is positioned as an ideal partner for customisable Skills Development (SD) as well as Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) solutions.
