Forging new relationships





Natasha Merckie thoroughly enjoyed her job shadow at Cab Foods, Bellville. She is eager for a career in an office and plans to return to FCD to attend the Office Admin course starting in May 2015.


FCD Director, Jane Gelderman, has been hard at work forging new relationships with business partners in order to offer our students a greater variety of  job shadow and job placement opportunities.

She found that she could interact with staff and customers more easily, which improved her ability to provide better customer service



One of these partners, Cab Foods, have just opened the door to us for Job Shadow opportunities at their Brackenfell and Bellville stores for our Job Readiness learners.

Cab Foods have also been in regular contact with us to meet their recruitment needs from our pool of students.

Our relationship with Cab Foods started late last year, when Cab generously donated ingredients to our Bake for Profit class for FCD’s Christmas Cake fund raising initiative.
