The Cyril Ramaphosa Educational Trust applies a unique approach in managing its educational programme. It also works to recruit programme participants that would typically get overlooked by other bursary organisations.

The CRET carefully screens candidates who are able to demonstrate great potential to grow and develop under the desired conditions backed by the right support system. Selected participants will have access to financial support, psychological and social grounding and mentorship.

Participants are required to attend rigorous holiday experiential  programmes where they can acquire additional networking opportunities and soft skills training They also undergo personal development programmes and team building activities with support coming from a cohesive and positive family environment.

In addition, CRET alumni and senior students act as mentors to new students while some send financial contributions to the programme. Others have even gone ahead and established corporate bursary programmes on their own.
