The TIA Future 500 Internship Programme is aimed at leading interns to master Higher Order Thinking (HOT) Skills, the foundation of innovation and advanced problem-solving skills and full-spectrum thinking (design and creative thinking).

A new innovation-driven mindset and demand for South Africa is needed to ensure a sustainable stream of skilled workers.

For this to happen we have to begin arming our young people from foundational level with problem-solving skills and the ability to make rapid decisions based on facts and evidence.

They must also be instilled with commercial awareness and the talent for spotting opportunities.
