About Us


We understand that the crux of the challenge faced in training accounting and tax professionals lies in how to provide them with relevant, quality work experience in order to develop their skills and competencies to become a competent employee within an Accounting & Finance Division of an organization.

As a result of the lack of available workplace experience, candidates are not able to complete their work experience logbooks, they struggle with the life skills needed to transition from academics to work and as a result of this the necessary work experience cannot be attained and candidates are stuck in purgatory…not yet skilled enough to qualify to gain entry to a professional body, but not exactly unskilled as they are in possession of an NQF6 qualification through our past projects and our professional team of experienced subject matter experts we want to EMPOWER our youth to not only SURVIVE in the workplace, we want to help them THRIVE

This challenge becomes exacerbated as FASSET and other government funding organisations provide millions worth of funding for the Academic Qualifications, leading to a bottleneck in the crucial area of converting academic knowledge to the workplace.

The question arises whether there is a way to move the newly qualified learner, who is not on a clear career path to become a member of a professional body, from the classroom to employment.  The old catch-22 is at play here: candidates cannot find work because of the lack of experience and they cannot gain experience due to the lack of work opportunities.

We believe the only way that this could be achieved is through our unique Tax and Accounting, virtual reality workplace experience, for more on what we mean by “Virtual Reality workplace experience”

“I got the opportunity to put my tax knowledge into practice. The workplace simulations helped me learn and understand how tax works in the real world. The simulations also enhanced my tax knowledge. The simulations also improved my soft skills such as communication, organisation and time management.”

“The mentorship group supported me and facilitated the balancing of my commitments”

Hope (Ditlalana) Makgeru

“Hi my name is Hope Makgeru, and I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of the 25 candidates to continue through with the Ubuchule 2022 program. Professionally this program has really assisted me in identifying areas that I had previously lacked knowledge in or neglected due to academic time constraints.

Not only did it fit in the missing pieces, but it also provided me with valuable real-life work skills through its stimulations that better equipped me professionally, and contributed towards my SAIT logbook even when I was still looking for employment.

Personally I got the chance to work and interact with like-minded peers, who challenged , and motivated me in a safe learning environment.

I am so thankful to the Ubuchule Team for the experience and their wisdom. This is one of those experience I will take with me professionally always.”
