What is the December Programme?

The Bizschool December programme is for you if you are going to write your Grade 12 or NC (V) Level 4 exams this year but have no firm career or study plans for 2019. 

It is an exciting and life changing 13-day programme jam packed with skills to help you take charge of your life as an adult in the real world!  It starts with a 3-day camp in Krugersdorp with fun team building activities and then a further 10-day programme at GIBS Business School. Some of the content covered includes:

Self-Awareness, career counselling, work place readiness, adult life skills, entrepreneurship skills, action and attitude.

How does it work? 

Up to 60 participants take part in the December programme.  Each day is different and includes: talks, group work, activities, assignments, outings, debates, mentoring, presentations and self reflection amongst other things. All of the content is presented by professional volunteers including CEO’S, directors and entrepreneurs who have taken time out to be with you and help shape your life.

When is it? 

Camp:  Friday 30th November, 10am to Sunday 2nd December 2018, 13h00

(Transport will be provided to and from the Camp)

Programme: Monday 3rd December to Wednesday 12th December, 08h00 – 17h00 each day.

Note: Full attendance on both camp and the programme is compulsory, therefore you may not attend the camp or the programme only – both have to be attended for the full duration. 

What is the cost?

The cost is R7000 for the full programme including the camp, lunch each day, the psychological testing and feedback and all the programme activities.  As we know most of our participants cannot afford this fee, we raise funds to cover some of this cost.  

The programme cost for participants is offered at a vastly discounted amount of R900 to cover the weekend camp and return transfers to Krugersdorp.
