Technical Accelerate Programme

Applications are open for the Dimension Data’s Technical Accelerate Programme and our new Dimension Data’s Dynamics Technical Accelerate Programme in partnership with CCBA.

What is TAP?

The Technical Accelerate Programme (TAP) started in 2019 in response to the growing demand for solutions that leveraged emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and (Robotics Process Automation) RPA within our clients.

How did TAP start?

What we found is that there was a shortage of skills in South Africa, so we were faced with three choices – we could either buy skills from our competitors, walk away from the market opportunity or we could create skills and that’s the decision we made). We wanted to start a programme that enables us to continuously respond to this rapidly changing landscape, contribute to our own skills transformation objectives, support the transformation of our business and in turn make a meaningful and lasting contribution to the lives of young South Africans.


The programme focusses on automation and coding and is designed to develop critical skills in these areas. The aim is to create the next generation technical talent required to accelerate our internal and client’s automation journey. 

We select young bright minds who are passionate about technology and we equip them with the skills to be relevant to the market with the intent of permanent placement within our organisation and with our clients.


The programme aims to give our youth a launchpad into this rapidly evolving 4th industrial revolution landscape and to further enhance their careers through formal training, mentorship and practical experience. As our graduates embark on this exciting journey that gives them exposure to ground breaking technology, they learn about the business dynamics, gain technical skills and get involved in business projects focussed on real RPA opportunities within the business and with our clients.
