This week saw a career exhibition hosted by Ikamva Youth at Masiphumelele High School. The event was an opportunity to provide advice regarding careers and further education opportunities to the learners at the school and was well attended by both local information providers and the learners themselves.
Masicorp were pleased to participate alongside our partners in the community including Masiphumelele library and Fish Hoek library staff who were showcasing the City of Cape Town Library and Information Services.
We were delighted to be joined by many of the graduates of our bursary programme, who assisted with our stand and were available to inform the learners of the benefits of university education. Several of the graduates were able to give specific guidance regarding their specialist courses including Avile Mabengu (environmental management) Khuselo Mchithakali (agriculture), Babalwa Mtshawuli (nursing) and Aluncedo Mtengwane (accountancy). Everyone was able to provide overall guidance on what to expect at university in terms of student life and the big step up required in terms of learning and understanding the higher level course materials.
Overall this was an excellent event and we hope to have inspired many of the schools learners to consider further education opportunities.
