As Dube TradePort, we have recognised that internships can be an important tool in helping to address the skills gap within South Africa, ensuring that graduates have the opportunity to gain the prerequisite knowledge to become employable is critical to tackling unemployment in an ever changing economic environment. Working in collaboration with a diverse group of professionals that are within the different businesses that Dube TradePort Corporation operates, we have been successful in creating an engaging and practical learning environment for graduates.

This gives graduates an opportunity to apply their academic knowledge, under the guidance of experienced professionals, to prepare them for the “working world”.
