Careers

Various Tertiary Institutions and Non-Academic Institutions are invited to address the Grade 12’s in the first and second term of the year during a set period in the school day. These presentations are designed to ensure that the Grade 12’s are given the opportunity to receive up to date information about their tertiary study opportunities, as well as interface with staff from the various institutions. Presentations are also made by non-academic institutions in order to ensure that the Grade 12’s are provided with a wide range of information regarding their post-school options.

Institutions that regularly visit the school and address the Grade 12’s include:

• Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University

In addition to presentations by various institutions, every effort is made to expose the Grade 12’s to various professions through presentations by professionals from various fields. Fields covered in the past include Law, Medicine, Engineering, Investments, Financial Planning and Personal Financial Education, Architecture, and Chartered Accounting. These are done in the second and third terms during a set period in the school day.

Tertiary Institution Application forms and required documentation

Application forms and course information from the majority of tertiary institutions are sent to the school and available from the School Counsellor’s office. These may be collected at 2nd break. These forms need to be signed and stamped by either the Rector or the School Counsellor. Such forms can be dropped off at the School Counsellor’s office directly after lines in the morning and collected at 2nd break. The same arrangement applies to the certification of documents pertaining to tertiary applications. Should a student require assistance with the completion of such documentation, an appointment may be made with the School Counsellor.
