Call to Create Workplace-Based Learning Opportunities

South African universities urged to work towards increasing work-based learning opportunities for their students

The Da Vinci Institute has called on South African universities to work towards increasing work-based learning opportunities for their students.

Speaking at his inauguration as the first chancellor of the Da Vinci Institute, in Johannesburg, Edward Kieswetter, said that South Africa has a high graduate unemployment rate, with many of its educated youth unable to make that essential first step into the workplace to gain working experience.

Kieswetter is of the view that the design of education in South Africa allowed for ‘work integration’ and that should be used effectively, adding that, “If we don’t take advantage of that, the ones who will lose are the unemployed graduates."
