“In an ever-changing environment, it is vital for students and graduates to embark on a lifelong learning journey and engage in activities that boost innovation, explore critical thinking, enhance collaboration and aid personal and career growth.
“I encourage MANCOSA students and graduates to attend the employability webinars and also look out for placement opportunities, internships and mentorship programmes,” said Adam.
Responding to what drives employability at MANCOSA, Martha Moyo, Regional Director at MANCOSA, said: “Employability at MANCOSA has been framed by looking at what transferrable skills the industry is looking for. The students benefit from master classes conducted by industry experts to hone their employability skills and make them more attractive to prospective employers.
“Whether it is the initial leap from formal education to a job for school leavers, to obtain a promotion or to switch employers, the employability initiatives at MANCOSA have been designed to cater for the different needs of the student base,” said Moyo.
