Our Story Born out of a deep passion for the continent, EDU Africa was launched out of Harare, Zimbabwe during 2003 – a couple of years after the founding members first began exploring the concept of offering travel experiences in Africa that benefitted the community and environment. Our organization soon expanded and opened offices in Cape Town, Nairobi and then Tanzania, as our core leadership team moved to live close to the communities they formed partnerships with. EDU Africa initially served groups who visited the continent for non-profit and service-related reasons. Our offering developed organically from there. Today, we have built our organization as a specialist provider of life-changing educational programs and service learning experiences in Africa – for both groups and individuals. Many people and organizations who have traveled with us from the get-go still do so today. Barry Rawlings, Managing Director & Southern Africa (Central) Director, explains why our offering is so unique: “We understand education. We aren’t a tour operator putting an educational spin on what we do, we are genuine educationalists and appreciate outcomes, curriculum and pedagogy.” He adds that EDU Africa is committed to keeping pace with developments in education on a global scale. “We understand that education around the world is undergoing a revolution and will look quite different just a few short years from now. We are pushing our programs to increasingly be in step with the global competencies that will be required for the world of tomorrow. I believe more strongly every day that Africa, in its richness, is the perfect canvas against which to learn about culture, worldview and some of the planet’s great challenges.” We are extremely excited about what the future holds for our continent, our communities and each and every person that places their feet on African soil. Thank you for being part of our story. May we continue to change lives in and through Africa together.

Vibrant, multicultural and dynamic, the University of Johannesburg (UJ) shares the pace and energy of cosmopolitan Johannesburg, the city whose name it carries. Proudly South African, the university is alive down to its African roots, and well-prepared for its role in actualising the potential that higher education holds for the continent’s development. The phenomenal success story of the University is one that has surprised critics and won over sceptics. Being an institution t… [+] hat prides itself on its accessible excellence, after only 11 years UJ has established itself as an institution of global excellence and world-class stature. In its first five years of existence, UJ doubled its accredited research output and increased its number of distinguished South African Research Chairs from none to seven. This remarkable achievement was reached well ahead of the target set for 2015. The 2010 research outcome was the result of UJ’s desire, during the initial period, to establish UJ as a thoroughly research-focused university. UJ is the first and only African university admitted to the highly respected consortium of 28 research-intensive universities in the world, Universitas 21 – an important endorsement of the growing international stature of UJ. UJ boasts world-class, internationally recognised academic programmes based on curricula informed by cutting-edge developments in both undergraduate and postgraduate education. UJ’s programmes, within its nine faculties, are designed to prepare students for the world of work and for global citizenship. The University has four campuses, namely the Auckland Park Bunting Road Campus; the Auckland Park Kingsway Campus; the Doornfontein Campus; and the Soweto Campus. Based on the choices of UJ’s Orange Carpet First-Year Students – those with an APS score equal to and greater than 40 points – the flagship programmes include: Accounting; Electrical and Electronic/ Mechanical/ Civil/ Mining Engineering; LLB/ BA Law/ BCom Law; Mathematics/ Applied Mathematics; IT/ Computer Sciences; Human Physiology; Optometry; Finance; Psychology; and Teacher Education. In order to make UJ’s teaching, research and innovation goals a reality, UJ has, over the past eight years, invested in excess of R2 billion into the upgrading and expansion of living and learning facilities on all of its campuses and into creating a safe and secure, world-class learning and research environment for both staff and students. UJ also introduced handheld devices (a tablet or laptop) into first-year classrooms in 2014, in a bid to connect these young minds with the world of e-knowledge that they are growing into, and to transform their ability to contribute and compete. UJ’s graduate success rate now stands at 83,4% and the overall annual graduate output is in excess of 11,400 students. The University’s First Year Experience Programme (FYE), an initiative offering academic skills reinforcement with an accent on students mentoring fellow students, is one of the support programmes that help ease the school-to-university transition. Almost 1,300 student tutors, selected from third-year level and up, act as an interface between students and teaching staff. UJ also introduced academic advisors in University residences and approved off-campus accommodation facilities. Under UJ’s Academic Excellence Programme, 250 student advisors are serving 2,000 first-year students in 25 residences. Notable, too, is that UJ, with more than 49,500 students; 2,300 international students; 6,700 postgraduates and renowned academic staff, is an institution with an admirable graduation rate. UJ is home to 133 rated researchers, six of whom are A-rated, and has seven National Research Foundation Chairs. Additionally, it produces the largest number of black accountants of all accredited residential universities in the country. While UJ pursues global excellence and stature, the University envisages being nationally responsive in a manner that only UJ can. In this regard, among South Africa’s six leading universities, only UJ successfully provides access to almost 2,000 first-year students who come from the poorest communities, providing them, where needed, with top-up NSFAS funding, bursaries and two healthy meals a day. In the next ten years, UJ has set six strategic goals, namely: Global Excellence in Research and Innovation. Global Excellence in Teaching and Learning. An International Profile Fit for Global Excellence and Stature. An Outstanding Student Experience. Active Global Reputation Management, and An Institution and People Fit for Global Excellence and Stature. Vision An international University of choice, anchored in Africa, dynamically shaping the future. Mission Inspiring its community to transform and serve humanity through innovation and the collaborative pursuit of knowledge. Values IMAGINATION CONVERSATION REGENERATION ETHICAL FOUNDATION Shaping the future Thinking independently Developing a cosmopolitan identity Exhibiting ambition and drive Adopting entrepreneurial approaches Learning together from our diversity Making wise decisions collectively Engaging meaningfully with one another Displaying mutual respect Leading consultatively Developing sustainably through creative contribution Introspecting for renewal Innovating for the common good Making positive change Taking advantage of overlooked opportunities Treasuring academic freedom Seeking balance in the pursuit of knowledge Facing challenges with courage and earning trust Acting responsibly by being fair, consistent and transparent Participating in and helping the community (Ubuntu)* *Ubuntu is the capacity to express compassion, justice, reciprocity, dignity, harmony and humanity in the interests of building, maintaining and strengthening the community.

Welcome to Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion Design Our nationally accredited courses provide learners with an opportunity to develop practical, vocational, creative and commercial skills. We strive to produce a calibre of design practitioner who is able to work effectively in the fashion industry.We aim to equip individuals with the skills and practical experience they require to handle the entire creative process of fashion – from concept to consumer. Personalised a… [+] ttention to individual students ensures growth and originality. We strive to produce reflective design practitioners who are ready to enter the fashion industry with the utmost expertise and confidence. Our Mission Statement We aim to equip individuals with the skills and practical experience they require to handle the entire creative process of fashion – from concept to consumer. Personalised attention to individual students ensures growth and originality. We strive to produce reflective design practitioners who are ready to enter the fashion industry with the utmost expertise and confidence. Goals and Vision Our goal is to empower learners through training and skills development, thereby allowing them to become economically independent and transfer their skills to others. The institution’s founder, Elizabeth, recognised that the fashion industry needed educated and well-trained individuals to maintain the high standards of the fashion industry, both locally and internationally. The academy was thus established in 1996 to address this need. Elizabeth is passionate about educating students and ensuring that they are equipped with the necessary skills to add value to the local industry, and also to make their mark internationally. In addition, the academy acknowledges and promotes the importance of academic competencies, which may give a stronger voice to fashion designers among other professionals. National Accreditation The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) Council on Higher Education (CHE) South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) From Concept to Consumer Our mission, vision and goals are beautifully summed up in the phrase: from concept to consumer. After careful consideration, the academy’s founders and directors approved the mission statement, which underpins the planning and development of the learning programme. Appropriate resources ¬(intellectual, literacy, financial and vocational support in conjunction with a well-designed institutional infrastructure) have been deployed to ensure successful delivery of our courses. Through internal and external quality assurance, we are able to assess and review the institution’s mission and goals regularly. The concept of continuous learning is an integral part of the mission statement. Our goal is to enable graduates to work in the ever-changing local and international fashion industry through observation, discovery, continuous learning, self-evaluation and self-reflection. By developing these skills, graduates will hopefully be able to conceptualise their own cutting-edge designs and deliver them to the industry and consumers. The institution furthermore strives to produce a calibre of a designer who is ready to enter the fashion industry with proficiency and confidence in the subject matter. By providing learners with an opportunity to develop practical, vocational, creative and commercial skills, our programme hopes to produce graduates who are able to work effectively in the industry and excel as fashion designers of the future. Teaching and Learning Strategies Since the mid-90s, the Elizabeth Galloway Academy of Fashion Design has been training individuals who want to enter the fashion industry or become fashion-design entrepreneurs. Practical experience plays an important part in our programmes, as it ensures that students gain industry-specific knowledge*. Furthermore, an emphasis on theoretical reflection creates insight and understanding, which allows facilitators to adjust their teaching strategies accordingly. More recently, the institution has started focusing on developing learners’ self-confidence so that they are able to cope with the demanding, fast-paced fashion industry. In order to support this new way of working, we have brought in additional resources – such as a library with internet access and use of the Worth Global Style Network (WGSN), as well as a full-time librarian who offers research support. Simultaneously, the staff body has grown and existing staff members have been encouraged to further their studies. Our teaching and learning strategy are underpinned by the idea that teaching and learning should be reciprocal. The facilitators aim to provide learning and teaching that is relevant and heuristic. Learners are taught a practical skill, then they are guided as to the why, how, when and where to apply it. Learners are challenged through a brief, task or question in order to reach a certain outcome. They are then required to complete the challenge through self-direction, exploration and guidance from a facilitator. Tasks are designed to promote creative learning, encourage portable skills and endorse informed and relevant choices. Evaluation of the outcomes through assessment and self-reflection helps in the overall preparation for work in the industry. Industry experience plays an important role in ensuring that training does not happen in a vacuum. The theoretical, practical component and experiential components play equally important roles in our teaching and learning strategy. * Ginns et al (as cited in Norton, 2009) report that practical experience plays an important part in learning and teaching but is not adequate, as it results in achieving only the first (and most basic) level in Blooms Taxonomy of learning – knowledge. Winkler (as cited in Norton, 2009) is in agreement with Ginns et al (as cited in Norton, 2009), as she reports the importance of theoretical reflection in creating insight and understanding, which allows facilitators to make different conceptual links in their teaching and learning strategies and students to integrate the knowledge. It is also deemed important by Oblinger and Rush (1997) as they report that as society and economies change it is important to ensure that higher education is geared to meet these new needs and challenges.

While AFDA is a unique institution, it caters and facilitates multiple intelligences. If we refer to Gardner’s multiple Intelligence tests – AFDA’s diverse spread of electives/disciplines caters for all these intelligence’s. Who are you? What makes AFDA unique? AFDA offers a learning system that utilizes a diverse number of learning strategies and methodologies which include tacit learning, learning by approximation, collaborative learning, scaffold learning and learning through socialization. The AFDA learning and assessment system caters to what Howard Gardner refined to as ‘Multiple Intelligence’s’. These diverse intelligence’s are: Visual-Spatial Bodily-kinesthetic Musical Interpersonal Intrapersonal Linguistic Logical-Mathematical The creative industries require diverse specialization (intelligence’s) that are able to collaborate in an economically viable manner to achieve high standards of production. AFDA students are given the opportunity to explore and discover their aptitude and by extension their career path. AFDA uses a learning system designed to deal with the opportunities and challenges of the knowledge economy and the future. It is a market-related learning system focusing on the audience and the target market. We offer an outcomes-based learning system which requires a heads on-hands on approach, focusing on leadership, creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. This mimics the industry and takes place in an authentic learning environment. AFDA focuses on the goals of the learner. AFDA students do not write traditional exams. Students are assessed on an individual basis and team/group focused research. An application of theory and research in the creation and exhibition of entertainment content or in development and monetization of entrepreneurial business and disruptive technologies is what primarily constitutes assessment at AFDA. AFDA’s learning process is highly effective and creates a network of skilled graduates who are able to forge careers in the entertainment, media and other creative industries.

Vision A vibrant, equitable and sustainable African university, committed to teaching and research excellence at the service of its students, scholars and the wider community. Mission To provide high-quality education of international standards contributing to the advancement of knowledge that is socially and ethically relevant and applying technological and socio-economic development of our nation and the wider world. Values Integrity - To respect and affirm the dignity,… [+] equality, freedom and rich cultural diversity of all human beings as the basis for peace and social justice, the pursuit of truth, intellectual honesty, and openness to ideas. Excellence - To be recognised as an international centre for excellence that is both rooted in its environment and sensitive to the challenges of human progress, and to foster a culture of teaching and learning and research excellence in the University as a basic minimum requirement for living up to the claim of being a site of knowledge generation. Innovation - To focus on the challenges presented by new information technologies, information management systems and processes, and opportunities for innovation. And to do so in an enterprising way that benefits the University and humanity. Ethics - The attainment of the highest professional and ethical standards in teaching, learning, research, community engagement and corporate governance. Strategic Objectives Excellence in teaching and learning, research and community engagement; This strategic objective focuses on the broad social vision which is required to sustain the University as an international centre for excellence that is both rooted in its environment and sensitive to the challenges of human progress; the imperative to revive a culture of teaching and learning and research excellence in the University as a basic minimum requirement for living up to the claim of being a site of knowledge generation and in order to be able to compare with similar institutions elsewhere in the world; and the fundamental mission of the contemporary African university and the inter-connection between that mission and broad-ranging expectations of the social responsibilities of the University to the communities it serves. It also focuses on accessing new technologies that could facilitate teaching and learning, and research. Improve the Student Experience: This strategic objective has to do with managing the experience of student life at the University, so that critical, engaged citizens and appropriately skilled graduates leave the University of Fort Hare. It focuses on the administrative, residential, sporting, cultural and social support systems for students. Build a Service Culture: This objective is designed to ensure that the ethical principles of service and ethos of service excellence permeate the University culture, for students, staff and stakeholders; as well as improved efficiencies in administrative and management systems that support the primary processes. Optimise the Multi-Campus model: This objective introduces the ‘Planets in Alignment’ model as the optimal model for our multi-campus university and describes how we intend to leverage the relative strengths and strategic niches of each of our three campuses while ensuring equivalence of status and coordination across the geographic space. Harness Technology Effectively: This objective focuses on the challenges presented by new information technologies in terms of the investments that need to be made, information management systems and processes, and opportunities for innovation. Develop Human Resources: This objective is about refreshing – or possibly re-negotiating – the psychological and developmental contract with our staff. We will also have to revisit our models of management and leadership and significantly improve our management capacity and capability. Managers will need to take responsibility for managing and supporting staff to make the transition to a new balance of activities, considering new models of teaching and learning, and planning staffing need to deliver that model. We also need to inculcate a firm, but the compassionate culture of individual and collective accountability; and reinforce staff expectations about being managed in line with this agenda. Achieve financial viability and sustainability: This enabler is concerned with the development of a sustainable funding base for the University, and with ensuring that the size and shape of the University are both viable and supports its strategic goals. In summary, the University will focus on transformation in higher education, good governance and accountability, and its social responsibility function in the coming period. It will also emphasise technological development and the establishment of a sustainable funding base. Charter of Ethical Principles and Values Preamble: ‘In lumine tuo vide bimus lumen’ – ‘In Thy light we see light’ The University of Fort Hare recognizes that any institution or community is ultimately governed by norms, values and belief systems that reflect its distinctive identity, traditions and orientation. The University believes that knowledge is a positive force only if integrated with values and that it should provide a nurturing context of strong ethical norms and principles. In the absence of such values, knowledge could be a destructive force. This Charter, therefore, presents the crucial value-framework that defines the ethos of the University of Fort Hare. It guides the University’s Vision, Mission, Corporate Goals and Strategic Objectives. It serves as a reference point for all its academic and administrative policies, programmes and procedures and it binds the entire university community by shared ethical principles and values. The Charter is relevant to our rights and responsibilities, as Fort Harians, about each other, the wider society and the environment. Ultimately, it seeks to inspire all people to live with nobility, dignity and an active conscience. The University of Fort Hare will always be the crucible where many of the critical ideas of South Africa’s democracy, liberation, reconciliation and forgiveness germinated, developed and strengthened and eventually reverberated throughout the country, the continent of Africa and around the globe. The Charter therefore naturally resonates with the principles and values that underlie the Freedom Charter, the South African Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Fort Hare Charter has grown out of an inclusive developmental process that involved the entire university community. It offers to all its members the ethical principles and values listed below, in order to guide us on our journey of discovery, exploration and realisation of our intellectual and unique human potentialities. Without such ethical guidelines all teaching, learning, research and community service are of little value. The University of Fort Hare Community is: Inspired by the heritage of the University and the contribution it has made to leadership, liberation and service to humanity; Accepting that the purposes of education include the realisation of our humanity as well as our responsibility to self, family and community; Recognizing that in the pursuit of truth and knowledge, the University, as an institution of higher learning, shall maintain in all that it does an unwavering focus on excellence; Affirming that a crucial role of education is to instil in students respect, tolerance and social responsibility in an environment of academic freedom, dialogue, friendship and understanding. The University of Fort Hare Community hereby accepts this Charter and commits itself to living by and promoting the principles and values listed below: Operational Principles To ensure that the universal values of justice, integrity, discipline, love, kindness, non-injury and concern for the well-being of others shall serve as a source of our thought, speech and action. To respect and affirm the dignity, equality, freedom and rich cultural diversity of all human beings as the basis for peace and social justice. To commit ourselves to the pursuit of truth, intellectual honesty, openness to ideas and excellence through the attainment of the highest professional and ethical standards in teaching, learning, research and community service. To endorse and encourage the endeavour for academic success as being critically linked with the striving towards an ever-deepening expression of our humanity. To uphold and honour the dignity of the University, to preserve its heritage, spirit and assets and to observe its statute, rules and regulations as well as the laws of the country. To encourage an orientation of imaginative, collaborative, problem-solving and entrepreneurial thinking in addressing the challenges that we face. As a staff member, to be a responsible, caring mentor in all our dealings with students and with each other. To not discriminate, directly or indirectly, on the grounds of birth, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or social origin, gender, age, illness or disability, language, culture, political or another opinion, religion, conscience, belief, marital status, pregnancy or sexual orientation. To be ever conscious of the need to develop a responsible relationship with the earth and to understand our critical role to protect and preserve it for future generations. To undertake teaching and research that will responsibly harness the benefits of all the sciences for the well-being of humanity, being conscious of the harm inherent in the irresponsible use of knowledge.
Vega was founded in 1999 in recognition of the shifting global focus towards Brand Leadership and Management and the increasing demand for creative and innovative brand thinkers. The accredited Independent Institute of Education, Degrees, Honours and Masters programmes are well known and respected by the brand, marketing and communications industries. Vega School, an educational brand of the Independent Institute of Education, believes that brands are the world’s greatest a… [+] ssets for meaningful change. Vega, therefore, aims to graduate a new breed of a thinker by delivering fully accredited Certificates, Baccalaureates, Honours and Masters programmes in brand building and creative communication. Vega’s mantra - wisdom with magic - communicates its belief in creative strategic thinking. An IIE Vega graduate is an explorer who is smart, colourful and passionate, but generally dissatisfied with the status quo because he/she knows that brands, businesses, economies and societies can be healthier and do better for people. The IIE graduates successfully contribute to society in diverse corporate and social arenas. About Vega Vega is the name of the brightest star in the celestial constellation of Lyra. Due to its intense luminescence and the crucial role it plays in maritime navigation, Vega has been described by astrophysicist Austin F. Gulliver as "the next most important star in the sky after the Sun". Founded in 1998 by a breakaway group of pioneers, mavericks and innovators, Vega School was born in response to the urgent need for a paradigm shift away from conventional marketing communications. The traditional approaches to brand-building, marketing and advertising had been exhausted and were rapidly reaching their sell-by date. A new school of thought was called for and Vega answered that call. The belief that the brand is born to lead is the cornerstone of the Vega philosophy. In the words of Vega founder Gordon Cook, "a brand delivers particular and unique meaning in order to add value and connect with people." In other words, a brand is not merely the name of a product but the manifestation of an identity and, more importantly, a purpose: think of brands such as Apple, Greenpeace and Google and you quickly realise that brands are far more than letters and logos but powerful cultural forces shaping the world as we know it. Our Teaching Philosophy The core pedagogic principle embraced by Vega is reflected in our very name. Since Vega is the navigational star, the concept of navigation is central to Vega’s unique teaching methodology. Vega lecturers are navigators: we are driven by the ethos of pro-active, expert guidance rather than that of merely imparting information that is passively absorbed. Central to the navigational process is the dialogue established between navigator and student. The rigorous examination, review and critical analysis of ideas allow for the continual evolution of concepts into final crafting to produce the most refined and meaningful results possible. Perhaps the most important cornerstone of the Vega teaching philosophy is that enshrined in our mantra wisdom with magic. Expressed in this dictum is the fundamentally synergistic nature of the relationships between creativity and strategy; inspiration and innovation; idea and deed. Our Val u es We believe in creativity with strategic intent We believe in creative application of borderless knowledge Our studio is the human imagination and we are here to have crayon-bright fun We strive to always be socially and culturally relevant We believe in always being warmly and immediately human because this gives the space for wisdom with magic to surface We strive to be at the leading edge in innovation We link business to profit by adding value to the lives of people

Training Philosophy Our philosophy is to give you a genuine operational capability, that is, to teach you to do the job you are licenced to do, and do it well. Whether a private or career pilot. Being able to do the job entails a lot more than controlling an aeroplane correctly and accurately. It includes effective and adaptable procedures, an applied operational knowledge, good and confident command skills. All these are taught and then practised through planned exposure to various conditions and situations.
