Golden Key is proud to announce that we took hands with SAACDHE in an attempt to respond to challenges were students need to be equipped with more than just academic qualifications; they need to be encouraged and supported to also develop as well-rounded and responsible citizens and as such, practioners of hope!
This project was conceptualised in 2008, piloted during the first six months of 2010 and will be implemented in 2011 to further unlock and optimise student potential at Southern African tertiary institutions. In practice this means that a set of 13 innovative and state of the art developmental workshops, developed by seven tertiary institutions, will be made available to counselling centres/units in Southern African tertiary institutions as from 2011.
The workshops cover the following topics: Time and Stress Management; Emotional Intelligence; Thinking Skills; Career Innovation; Jump Starting Your Career; PersonalBranding; Adjusting to Campus Life; Preventing Alcohol Abuse; Leading Well in Africa; Study Skills; Getting the Most out of Lectures; Communication, Self-Esteem and Assertiveness.
According to Prof Charl Cilliers, the project leader, "It is my belief that these new workshops have the potential to empower and improve student counselling, career and development centres and units on a scale never seen before".
