Practice questions for Psychometric tests:​​​


It all starts with that first chance.

YES is one of the first social compacts between government, business and labour created to give one million youth one million opportunities to succeed, while securing South Africa’s economic prosperity. Over the next three years, YES – led and supported by the private sector - will incentivise businesses to employ young people, giving them a chance at a life-changing first work experience. With a unique collaboration between government, labour, civil society and the youth, this represents a benchmark in fresh, bold responses to our country’s unemployment crisis.

The Problem YES Tackles

In the words of President Cyril Ramaphosa, “Our most grave and most pressing challenge is youth unemployment. It is therefore a matter of great urgency that we draw young people in far greater numbers into productive economic activity”.

Six million young people out of work is a crisis for South Africa; our future workforce is not being educated, trained or employed. Compounding this, the longer people are out of work, the harder it is for them to re-enter the workforce. Worse still, 56% of the million young people entering the job market each year don’t have a matric, giving them little hope of employment and leaving them vulnerable to a loss of dignity and succumbing to social ills.
