Earn As You Learn programme

The Earn as you Learn programme at TEXFAD is designed to support Vocational Education students to turn their innovative ideas into businesses while still at school. The programme admits students for internship at TEXFAD and continues to support them through their final years of study.

The incubator supports them to develop idea to prototype level and finally to branded products which are then commercialized. The process enables the students to Learn while Earning. This encourages students to focus their learning to job creation rather than job seeking.
