This year we started the Aspire programme in three schools which helps build the skills and abilities of underprivileged girl students through quality education and other relevant inputs, with the objective of enhancing their employability.
Senior staff from KPMG act as key mentors to provide strategic direction, and work closely with the scholars to offer guidance, instill values and share their own experiences. Students attend additional training programmes on spoken English, IT skills, sports, self-defence, theatre and art.
Our Learning and Development team conducts training including career counselling, grooming, time management and etiquette. We have supported 2,700 training hours for the scholars since October 2014.
