SABC Education has partnered with Career Indaba and African EduWeek, which takes place in Sandton this month. “A partnership with SABC Education has been a long time ambition for us as this takes our education events, Career Indaba and African EduWeek, to a whole new level and will enable us to reach the hearts and minds of learners, students and teachers everywhere,” says Tanya Jackman, event director of Career Indaba and African EduWeek. SABC Education has signed a three-year agreement with the event organisers which entails pre-event promotion to its radio and television audience as well as a strong presence onsite during the events.
The third annual Career Indaba is taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre from 19-20 May and is South Africa’s number one destination for students, learners, job seekers and young professionals to meet universities, FETs, career advisors and employers. The eighth edition of African EduWeek, which returns to Johannesburg from 10-11 July, is specifically aimed at teachers and education experts and is the continent’s premier education conference and expo.
“Since 1996, SABC Education has been proud to fulfil its mandate with compelling educational content for our diverse audiences in South Africa and the rest of Africa,” says Danie Swart, head of SABC Education. “To enable us to continue enriching minds and lives, we have to also spread our wings and find partners that have similar values and can complement our offering. We believe we have found this in Spintelligent, who have been organising very successful education and other events in South Africa and all over the continent, for many years.”
