ABOUT THE COMPANY PROVIDING THE LEARNERSHIP:
Seriti, is derived from a Sesotho word meaning integrity. It describes the aura cast by people as they go through life – the shadow that grows when an entity does good or diminishes if it misbehaves. So in essence, ‘seriti’ is your reputation and ultimately your legacy. Seriti aims to be constantly aware of the shadow we cast, and aim to create a positive, empowering and sustainable legacy for our stakeholders, and our country.
Seriti is a broad based, 91% black owned and controlled South African mining company co-owned by four black anchor shareholders, Masimong Group, Thebe Investments, Zungu Investments (Zico) and Community Investment Holdings (CIH).
