CLASS INFORMATION

Tuition is free for all students.  All students receive a full bursary. 

 

Student transport costs are not included.  Students must pay their own transport to and from class each day.  We are located very close to the Cape Town Central Station.

Classes are from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, including Public Holidays, as well as one weekend day (either Saturday or Sunday).

Classes are 6 months in duration.

All classes are full-time.

There are no short, weekend or night courses.

Classes are only in Cape Town.

EACH CLASS CONSISTS OF THREE PHASES:

 

Phase 1:  Nine weeks of kitchen and classroom study

 

Phase 2:  Three weeks of professional, unpaid internship

 

Phase 3:  Three months of required paid employment.

An ICT certificate is awarded only after the successful completion of all three phases.

STUDENT INFORMATION

Anyone 19 years of age or over may apply. 

Matric is not necessary.

Good health, physical fitness and energy are necessary.

You must own a phone and always have airtime.​

You must be able to financially support yourself for the entirety of your training.  Your home life must be stable enough for you to make your full, 100% commitment of time, effort and energy to your training.


All students must be prepared to speak, read and write English.  We understand that many struggle with English.  There is no shame in that.  You will never be judged by ICT for your lack of English.  We strongly encourage you to apply even if you do struggle with English.

You must be ready and willing to face your personal issues and demons, and to work harder than you have ever worked before.

APPLICATION INFORMATION

You must provide a certified copy of your South African ID along with your application, or a copy of your international ID and proof of legal South African residence and, if applicable, your work visa.


Applicants are phoned 3-4 weeks prior to the start of each class and given a scheduled interview date and time.

Applicants must attend THREE DAYS OF INTERVIEWS over the course of two weeks in order to be considered for class.

Attending the interviews does not guarantee acceptance to class.

For those who travel to Cape Town from out of town, your interviews will be scheduled to help minimize your stay in Cape Town before class starts. 

 

ICT does not provide transport or accommodation of any kind. 

                                 

All applicants must provide their own reliable and safe transport and accommodation to and from Cape Town — and while in Cape Town if accepted to the class. 

 

ICT may request written confirmation of your local accommodation prior to your being accepted to class.

In an effort to help promote international unity and tolerance, ICT may accept a maximum of two non-South African citizens per class session.  All applicants not born in South Africa must provide proof of legal residence within South Africa and a valid work permit along with your application.

Special Note

On the application form you will be asked if you have any criminal history.  You must supply every detail of any criminal history or act (if any). 

Everyone accepted to ICT must undergo a criminal record check upon acceptance.  

A criminal record will not automatically disqualify you from being admitted to ICT.   Each matter is considered on a case-by-case basis.  We strongly encourage you to apply even if you do have a criminal record.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS

Friday, 3 January, 2020, is the deadline for applications for the 36th class, which begins on Monday, 27 January, 2020.

Applications may be submitted ONLY by email or post.  Under no circumstances may applications be dropped off at ICT. 

 

Complete instructions for submission can be found on the first page of the application form.

Applications will not be considered without a copy of your South African I.D., or your valid South African visa and work permit, along with proof of application for your certified criminal background check.

Everyone who submits an application within the deadline period will be called for an interview.

 

Good luck with your application and we look forward to meeting you at your interview.
