Learners can apply to be part of the programme at and the programme is free. Students from Universities can also apply to be mentors during the programme. The City of Tshwane provides the transport everyday during the programme.

The programme will be taking place from the 29th June until the 10th July at Code Tribes Academy at The Innovation Hub. This time, the VacWork will be focusing on healthcare systems, focussing on mobile apps, web applications, electronics and robotics, graphics design and business analysis.
