The company provides hands- on, professional and practical artisan skills training. For this reason the campus was constructed and build as a virtual workplace environment, where learners not only learn theory but practically learn, apply, practice and demonstrate their newly acquired skills. This is experiential training at its best with the unique AITF learning model.
The simulated real life scenarios, cubicles and problem solving areas in respect of all the learning areas were created specifically to provide the students with an opportunity to apply their skills and acquired problem solving abilities in the specific learning areas in a secure and safe simulated workplace arena.
This exponentially increase their self-confidence to easily apply their skills in the real workplace environment with real stress and other factors playing a part in the individual’s ability to perform sufficiently. At AITF the learners get exposed to real workplace problems in a controlled, safe arena through which they continuously learn before entering the workplace.
The success of the AITF training model has been proven. The student and employer’s feedback and the training- to- job turnaround statistics clearly illustrates this.
Many of the unemployed “graduate” learners get employed within one to two days from finishing their training at the AITF training facility. In illustration thereof learners from a Retrenched assistance programme trained at AITF and have now been re-employed by their previous employers.
As a result of the standard of training provided to the retrenched workers through the AITF training model, the current employees are earmarked for training at AITF to also upgrade their skills.
