Placement of students on campus

In 2008 Management approved the Placement of Students on Campus for the purpose of completing Work Integrated Learning (WIL).  The project was assigned to and is managed by the Co-operative Education Department.  A specific budget is provided by Management in this regard.

This placement process is strictly to accommodate students that is still in need of WIL, in other words, they need WIL in order to receive the relevant diploma.  So therefore, only students with a highest qualification of Grade 12 and who are still busy with their National Diploma will be accommodated. NO B-Techs, etc. can be accommodated under this project.

For more information and how the process works, please refer to the document below:
