As the world continues to change around us, so does the need to keep up. No matter what stage of life you are in, learning never ends.
Surviving and thriving in the 21st century requires that you become a life-long learner, remain eager to sharpen your skills and adapt to the changing world around you. If you are thinking of going back to school, why not start in 2020? There is no better time than the present.
The benefits of becoming a lifelong learner
The world of work has become very competitive. Graduates are now competing both locally and on the global stage. Constantly upskilling yourself gives you the competitive edge that modern organisations are looking for. It helps you stay relevant and makes you a valuable member of any team.
How can I upskill myself?
Organisations are looking for responsive employees. Those who are up to date with their qualifications are most likely to climb the corporate ladder faster. Upskilling yourself is easy and doesn't have to stop where you started. If you received admission to an IIE Higher Certificate qualification, you can, upon graduation, articulate to an IIE Diploma and then IIE Bachelor's degree at IIE Rosebank College.
But I have no time?
Working professionals are also able to study further. You can pursue part-time study or even register to study online. These options make it possible for you to study around your schedule, at a time and place that is most convenient for you.
Will I be able to afford it?
There are several options when deciding on a tertiary education provider. In South Africa, students have the option of choosing between private and public education providers. IIE Rosebank College offers affordable and flexible payment terms to make sure that fees aren't a reason why you can't study further. The choice is yours, study full-time, part-time or through distance learning. You can also pay your IIE qualification fee over 11 months. Take a look at the fee schedules here http://bit.ly/2R7rKmO
