HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
CapaCiTi Programmes work on a Pay It Forward model. You do not have to pay anything during your programme; instead, you will pay back your training costs in affordable installments every month only once you have a job and are employed full-time. Your installments are used to give another young South African the chance to participate on a CapaCiTi Programme. You’ll also receive a small allowance to help with transport costs during the programme. For some programmes, full bursaries are available from our corporate sponsors.

What does it cost?
CapaCiTi will cover all the costs of the programme while you are still a student with us, and you will receive a monthly travel allowance. When you get a job (which we will help you find), you will start paying back your training loan in small, monthly installments which are related to your salary. The faster you progress in your career, more you earn, the quicker you will pay forward the loan. When you pay the loan back to CapaCiTi, we will spend this money directly on another young South African’s training. You therefore are paying forward your opportunity, making a change in another person’s life.
The brackets for repayment are:
a. 7.5% repayment per month for earnings R10,000+
b. 10% repayment per month for earnings R10,001 – R15,000
c. 12.5% repayment per month for earnings R15,001 and up.
The cost of the programmes vary from R30,000 – R60,000. We will take you through the entire process at an info session so you fully understand what you’re committing to. We do everything we can to ensure that the prices are constant, however we may need to change the cost of a product, based on the package on offer.
Why are credit checks conducted?
This is to make sure that you don’t have any major existing debt already, and therefore it would be challenging for you to pay forward the training when you are employed.
