Philosophy, Values & Culture

At AlgoAtWork Robotics Academy, we believe in an open-minded, experimental approach to ensure that we give our mentees creative room to express themselves through ideas. We pay special attention to each and every mentee and deeply connect with their passions so they can develop technology solutions in line with what they love and care about.

WE LISTEN MORE AND TALK LESS.

We have learnt that children possess a lot of knowledge and hence we don't teach; We mentor and guide. Our job is to point them in the right direction. We allow children to learn by themselves. The more they do, the more intelligent they become.

OUR MENTORS AREN'T THE CENTRE OF ATTENTION

Children are the centre of learning. We look at things they love and we encourage them towards them. We use #Coding and #robotics as a vehicle to further their interests and passions.

WE CHALLENGE THEIR ABILITIES

They have to think about the #social as well as the #business aspect of their solution. We organise business pitches and presentations for them by inviting high-profile leaders.

We work hard to prepare them so that they can present their ideas. 

WE LOVE CHILDREN!

Nothing beats true love, the care and deep engagements we have with them. 

We play with them, we care deeply about their passions and are obsessed with how best can we open hip opportunities for them to grow and be better versions of themselves.

If South Africa is to compete in the global markets, we need to actively build the skills and grit required for future economies. We need to start early and be intentional about it too.

FUTURE OF JOBS REPORT 2020

By 2025, the time spent on current tasks at work by humans and machines will be equal. Skills gaps continue to be high as in-demand skills across jobs change in the next five years. The top skills and skill groups which employers see as rising in prominence in the lead up to 2025 include groups such as critical thinking and analysis as well as problem-solving and skills in self-management such as active learning, resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility

"Skills for Industry 4.0 and the world of work notes that the current skills gaps need to be addressed and that school-leavers need to be equipped with work-ready digital skills."
