At the UJ STH we are once again at the start of a new academic year and are feeling extremely excited about the tourism and hospitality industries once again resuming regular business.
This year, we are embarking on a switch from Work Integrated Learning (WIL) to Work Integrated Education (WIE). The purpose of WIE is to exposure all students at every level of study to the industry so that they can apply their theoretical knowledge, build confidence, and begin thinking about potential career/entrepreneurship paths. For us to successfully implement WIE for our students, we need the help of our industry partners to join us in grooming our students and in preparing them for the world of work. In doing so, we are calling on industry members who would be interested in joining us this semester (starting end February) in the following capacities:
Mentors (group or individual mentorship)
Providers of industry-based projects
Providers of case studies for students to work on
The hosting of field trips
We are aware that you are extremely busy and can assure that you we will assist however possible to ensure that this does not take too much of your time.
If you are interested, please contact email@example.com and let her know what kind of WIE activities you are able to come on board with, and the specific niche areas that you specialize in so that we can best link this to the current curriculum.
