The Graduate Finishing School (GFS) is geared at preparing graduates and young professionals for the future by offering them skills for life – those things that are not ordinarily taught in school or university.
Many graduates do not have the basic life skills to secure a job or to function effectively when they do. This in part is due to an educational system that elevates theory-based study and written examination over other forms of learning. The effect is that many graduates cannot think beyond what they have learnt in school, find it difficult to apply theories to life situations and generally do not know how to think outside the box.
Importantly, many of our graduates lack basic life skills such as communication skills, presentation skills, how to work in a team and social etiquette.
The Graduate Finishing School (GFS) aims to complete the educational experience for young professionals and graduates.
