Brenda Horner started GAP ACADEMY in 2006. As a qualified educator with experience in teaching at high school and lecturing at tertiary levels, it became obvious and essential, that there was a need to create a constructive Gap Year for students after school and for those who leave tertiary training.

Students (and their Parents!) at high school level, have a daunting task to choose a career and life path after school and many make hasty and wrong decisions which can result in study changes or work dropouts. Most students are able to discover their niche and life path once they have had time to emotionally mature out of the school environment and have a breathing space to assess and experience different career and work options.

GAP ACADEMY fills this bridging gap and endeavours to expose and equip students with essential life skills, career options, business and finance accumen, and many other life fundamentals and life foundations!

GAP ACADEMY recruits the services of professionals and experienced lecturers to tutor the students and to passionately stear our youth into becoming proud, constructive and positive members of our society, equipped with life's tools to achieve and cope.
Seeing the results and achievements of past students, we are confident that this year at GAP ACADEMY is an essential step for any student to take when leaving school!
