Nine students from the Arts Outreach Programme attended a Career day event organised and hosted by the SAEP Tertiary Support Programme (TSP) team in partnership with the SAEP Arts Outreach Programme. The event took place on Friday 14 August at the SAEP offices.

The learners were predominantly from Zisukhanyo Senior Secondary School in Philippi Township.

The event was hosted by Janine Jansen of TSP. The learners gained valuable career guidance experience. They were trained around Applications for tertiary institutions, bursaries amongst other things. The learners were also provided with free internet access in order for them to be able to apply for potential bursaries and scholarships.

A follow up exercise is being arranged for them to be able to return to SAEP to further process applications and possibly continue with the applications.

The learners were transported to the venue and they were taken home in the SAEP minibus.

The day was very productive and the learners expressed their gratitude for the opportunity.

Kudos to the SAEP Arts Programme and the SAEP TSP for making this day possible.
