THE KEY TO
LIES IN OUR PEOPLE.
History tells us that the problems facing artisan industries can’t be tackled alone or in isolation. BluLever is demand-led, connected, and innovative. We’re adding value and creating alignment throughout the artisan ecosystem.
Solving Africa's Challenges
BluLever education is an innovative trade training organisation.
We are solving some of Africa's biggest challenges by upskilling the artisans that build our continent.
Africa has the most youthful population in the world.
70% of our population is currently under the age of 30, with our average age being just 19.5. This youth bulge is on a trajectory to continue to grow.
By 2035, Africa will have the world's largest workforce, some 1,1 billion people. At this point, 40% of the world's workforce will be African.
By 2050, the populations of Africa's cities will double. We will have over 100 cities with more than a million inhabitants. This rapid urbanisation will require increased infrastructure development and supporting services.
The Forgotten Fixers
While university education has become our society's pinnacle of aspiration, something we invest in and innovate on constantly, vocational training has been forgotten.
SA's artisans are aging, with little skills transfer occurring. Young people are struggling to build artisan careers.
Fifty-five is the average age of an artisan.
According to the 2018 Manpower Report, artisan roles are the hardest to fill both in SA and globally.
Artisan roles are the hardest to fill.
The Forgotten Fixers
We believe that to develop our continent our people need better artisan education. That is why BluLever exists, we believe in artisans.
