Pooling resources to benefit students

AVI Bursary Programme

AVI’s bursary programme provides vacation work opportunities for all their bursars, as well as graduate development positions to those who have completed their studies. The company also runs a volunteer industry mentor programme for its bursars and StudyTrust employees are regularly benefitting from the mentor training offered by AVI’s Learning and Development department. Vacation work opportunities are offered to non-AVI sponsored students through its Spitz and Kurt Geiger stores. StudyTrust works with beneficiaries from its other CSI programmes, providing bursaries for alumni of these programmes.
