ENGAGED: Students getting advice

Highlighting the objectives behind the fair, Ba Isago Francistown Marketing and Communications Director, Gugulethu Ndebele explained the idea was to give an overview of the courses they offer.

“It enables learners to select the right path and to make informed career choices,” noted Ndebele, adding it also gives the university the chance to showcase exactly what makes Ba Isago tick.

“It allows learners to appreciate the very conducive and welcoming environment that will be home to them for the duration of their studies should they pick us.”

Meanwhile, the University Managing Director, Odirile Bagwasi Gabasiane revealed the event marks the beginning of Ba Isago’s 20-year anniversary celebrations.

He noted that one of the university’s fundamental values is to give back to the community, which includes giving out free career consultations and advice.

“This auspicious occasion is a special way of Ba Isago giving back freely to our communities as we celebrate 20th anniversary. I wish to assure you that Ba Isago curriculum is developed in line with the HRDC top priority skills in order to avoid unnecessarily flooding the market with relevant skills. It is meant to market and produce market ready graduates,” Gabasiane declared, adding they offer market responsive programmes with ‘entrepreneurial flair’.

“I therefore call upon all of you to be curious enough to ask and seek clarification on your desired career paths and remember to make wise career choices and decisions,” he closed.

Officially opening the fair, Francistown Mayor, Godisang Radisigo stressed such initiatives were vital in helping guide young scholars to make the correct choices for their futures.
