South African Education Project The Post Matric programme is open to post-secondary students from all areas of Cape Town and beyond. Applicants are assessed on their Grade 12 results and such factors as resilience, independence, confidence, commitment to serve others and determination to succeed.
SAEP was invited to the Annual Women's Day event hosted by Tsiba Business School. The invitation was extended to our Tertiary Support Programme students. The focus was on celebrating women who are using their influence to inspire the future generation of females. The panel discussion was on the importance of female leadership, in honour of Women’s Month.
The discussion was led by Tsiba co-founder and board chairwoman Gia Whitehead. Among others, the panelists spoke on the challenges they had to overcome as new graduates entering the workforce and the importance of setting goals in order to achieve your results. Students were inspired and learned the importance of asking others for help and building support network.
The message that our students walk out with was “Discipline, resilience, perseverance and faith” this was a very powerful message and it speaks to the support SAEP students who demonstrate the potential to succeed, receives. SAEP places special focus on those students who are at risk of not completing their studies due to a variety of psycho-social and economic challenges.
