Deloitte has run the Young Executives Programme twice a year since the first programme was launched in October 2014.  This programme has been very successful.  It aims at developing the necessary business skills in young leaders of South Africa. The Young Executives Programme is for Grade 11 and Grade 12 learners interested in pursuing the chartered accountancy qualification and who have an interest in business management and entrepreneurship.
