Graduate Trainee Scheme
In May 2008, the Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority launched a Graduate Trainee Scheme; a programme that was designed to attract fresh graduates into the telecommunications regulation industry. Once recruited, graduates would undergo "on-the-job" mentoring as well as intensive academic training necessary to bridge their passage to telecommunications regulation. Based on the success of the initial programme, the BOCRA management decided to continue the Graduate Training scheme on a " as-needed " basis through which fresh graduates are invited to join the telecommunications industry.
The Graduate Package
On top of the benefits that the BOCRA offers, the Graduate Trainees also receive an attractive allowance as well as a comprehensive graduate induction programme, where they:
- learn about BOCRA role and responsibilities;
- meet key people and spend time in different areas of the business;
- develop sufficient understanding of legislative policies, processes and procedures;
- explore the skills and behaviours needed for effective team working and making the transition from university to work; and
- navigate BOCRA systems and premises.
Training for the BOCRA Trainee Graduate will be ongoing throughout the scheme. They will receive a combination of carefully planned development throughout their rotations in subjects such as: market analysis, introduction to regulation; monitoring licensees for compliance, public education etc. along with the training tailored to suit individual development needs.
As part of our commitment, Graduates Trainees will also have a mentor. This is an important part of the graduate scheme and your ongoing development. The mentoring scheme in BOCRA is a way of developing colleagues by allowing them to bounce ideas off more experienced people and creating greater alignment with the organisation values and ambitions. It encourages individuals to discuss issues, ideas and challenges on an equal footing.
