Welcome Note from SASCE President
Published at: 26/07/2016 19:06
Dear WIL Delegates,
On behalf of the Southern African Society for Cooperative Education (SASCE) Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2nd WIL Africa Conference, to be hosted by University of Johannesburg in South Africa.
The WIL Africa Conference is a premium annual event on Cooperative Education and Work Integrated Learning. Building from a very successful inaugural WIL Africa Conference in 2015, SASCE is equally excited at the anticipated success this year and would in advance like to thank government representatives, industry, education, Labour and student representatives who will be participating in the conference.
The Global advocacy by World Association on Cooperative Education, the continental advocacy by SASCE, more WIL adoption by universities around the world as an educational strategy and the South African Government position as reflected in the White Paper on Post-School Education and Training Are all a reflection of the growing importance of WIL in student employability.
If Human Capital is the most important asset of any organisation, then the alignment between the required Human Capital profile and the quality, relevance and work readiness of the graduates from our institutions who are the talent supply, is critical and impacts on the employability of the students post their studies. The conference theme for this year is therefore "WIL and Employability
The conference is therefore at an appropriate time (even though convened at short notice). The participants here will be from educational institutions, industry and various Government organisations and also includes WIL students/graduates. All these voices can contribute to a framework that is acceptable and practical.
The conference will again showcase best practice models and allow for interrogation of these and important policy issues such as the National Framework for WIL. Workshops are a key feature of the programme and these include Student Tracking Systems, WIL in TVET Colleges, Forming partnerships with Industry, etc.
Participants may therefore request funding from their institutional skills funding to attend the workshops and conference.
SASCE thanks the various speakers and panelists who have agreed to participate. More details of the keynote speakers and sponsors will be forthcoming shortly. (www.wil-africaconference.com
)The conference also has an Awards Banquet, where we recognise the contribution made by several organisations and individuals.
The conference is supported by the NSA. Apart from the presentations, discussions and debates, the WIL Africa conference is also about networking. We expect that there will be many alliances and collaborative initiatives that will develop at the conference.
Your continued support for the annual WIL Africa Conference is appreciated.
Wishing you a great conference!
Shakeel OriSASCE President
