Who is the Resource Bank intended for?

The Resource Bank is for young people and their mentors on the TIL programmes. Now that this document is available on the SAYes website we hope it will also be of value to many more young people in South Africa facing key decisions in (among other areas) their education and career.

How often is the Resource Bank updated?

The Resource Bank is updated four times a year, an ongoing project undertaken by Keith Shone.
