University students now able to access the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting (Cert BA) to equip them with critical finance and business skills used by employers (JOHANNESBURG) 13 March, 2018 - South African youth will have an opportunity to develop the critical finance and business skills needed to boost employability through a new partnership between the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and Monash South Africa (MSA). Recently, the two institutions entered into an agreement to extend CIMA's Certificate in Business Accounting (CIMA's entry-level qualification) to next generation finance professionals. Today, in South Africa, there are more matriculants who are not employed or in higher education facilities than ever before. With the youth unemployment towering at 27%, this partnership aims to influence the education and employment landscape in a positive way. The CIMA Cert BA qualification will equip young people with the skills and competencies required for a job in accounting or finance, or to start their own business and participate constructively in the economy. The Cert BA qualification is considered a stepping stone for a career in business and finance, helping students develop skills in accounting, management accounting, and core business principles. It is also a formal entry route into the CIMA professional qualification, recognised by employers worldwide. After successfully completing the Cert BA and the CIMA Professional qualification, students may apply for the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation, which distinguishes more than 150,000 management accountants worldwide who have reached the highest benchmark of competency. The partnership between CIMA and MSA is a continuation of CIMA's efforts to reskill finance professionals to meet the needs of an evolving world. Backed by the strength of the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (The Association), the new global . . .
Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) recently partnered with the Thuto-Thebe Foundation and Caring for Girls organisation to donate sanitary towels to the value of R120 000 for learners. As CCBSA, we are fully committed to ensuring that our youth receive education, as such when faced with the plight of young girls being unable to attend classes due to lack of sanitary towels. We decided to be actively involved with Thuto Thebe foundation and be a part of the solution by providing these much needed resources. We firmly believe that to ensure the future of our young generation we need to support them even if it may something as a basic need as sanitary towels. CCBSA has thereby donated R120 000 towards the Caring for Girls Campaign in Phokeng which will ensure that 500 girls will have sanitary towels to sustain them for the whole of 2018. Her Royal Highness, Princess Tirelo Molotlegi is spear heading this campaign through their foundation Thuto-Thebe after seeing the plight of underprivileged young girls missing out on schooling due to a lack of sanitary towels. This happens due to the lack of funds, especially because most of the girls come from child headed households. Their vision is to improve the quality of education in South Africa for a more sustainable future and through partnerships with an organisation like Caring for Girls, they aim to bring meaningful and tangible support for learners. The launch held at the Kutlwanong School of the Deaf resulted in over 250 learners from their school and learners from surrounding schools receiving sanitary towels. More pads will be directly distributed to the various schools in the upcoming months. CCBSA District Manager, Hlako Rachidi noted that it is a tragedy that most of our young girls miss school as they do not have adequate menstrual care which is, undoubtedly, a human right and it’s time for our corporates and communities work together to address that fact.” The Caring for Girls foundation was formed by . . .
The social upliftment of the communities living around the Engen Klawer 1Stop is close to the heart of owner Don Theart. Engen Klawer 1Stop is located on the N7 approximately 25km south of Vanrhynsdorp in the northern reaches of the Western Cape. Believing it is crucial to give back to the community in which he operates, Theart has chosen to focus his efforts on education. “When we heard that Smurfie pre-primary and the two primary schools in our area, Nieuwoudt and Klawer were short on basic supplies, we collected and handed over large packs of printing paper, colouring in books, play activities and other goodies from our Quickshop and toys from the Wimpy,” says Theart. This is also not the first time Engen Klawer 1Stop have assisted the local community. In 2017, Theart and his team sponsored a number of ad hoc school sports such as rugby, netball, athletics and karate with both fuel donations and financial contributions for sports gear. Another issue close to Theart’s heart is water conservation and the drive for drought relief. “Engen Klawer and our customers are strong supporters of Burre Burger’s drought aid project which is wholly funded by the public and businesses to provide assistance to drought stricken areas. We have a large donations box on our forecourt where our customers can help support this drive,” says Theart. Theart recently met with the principals from both Nieuwoudt and Klawer primary schools to find out what their pressing needs were. “We have got some exciting plans in the works for later this year which we hope will go a long way in uplifting the community of Klawer,” adds Theart. Engen’s Corporate Social Investment Manager, Adhila Hamdulay says the company views its responsibility to society as being as important as its responsibility towards its shareholders and employees. “As Engen, we are conscious of our need to build and maintain a credible profile as a responsible corporate citizen. We are therefore . . .
The University of Johannesburg‘s (UJ’s) Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture (FADA) is proud to present ‘RECAST Recontextualising the Classical Casts in the University of Johannesburg Collection’, from 20–28 March 2018. UJ has a collection of 25 plaster casts of classical sculptures, ranging from copies of archaic kouroi to full-size casts of the Nike of Samothrace, and the Aphrodite of Melos, which, for most of their lives, have been hidden in plain sight on campus. The marginalisation of these objects is not unusual, particularly in the South African context. As uncomfortable reminders of an era when culture was didactic, elitist and emphatically Eurocentric, they present obvious challenges for curators, interpreters and historians alike. Thus, it is hardly surprising that where collections of classical objects (or plaster casts) exist in South African public institutions, they have been, at best, marginalised or relegated to storage, and at worst destroyed. This exhibition, curated by Federico Freschi (Executive Dean of FADA), aims to open a debate around these objects, and to consider what we might learn from them. If, as the Museum of Classical Archaeology at the University of Cambridge claims, “Every cast tells two stories. One ancient. One modern,” the existence of a comprehensive and intact collection of classical plaster casts at a South African university widely celebrated for its achievements in transformation raises the interesting potential to provide additional narratives as we seek to make sense of their past(s), present and future. The exhibition and the accompanying seminar (led by Grant Parker, Chair, Department of Classics, Stanford University and with a response by Anna Tietze, University of Cape Town) will provide an opportunity for dialogue and thoughtful engagement with these objects, disentangling them from their associations with Eurocentric didacticism, and recasting them as complex objects whose avatars have had a long and . . .
