SACAP (South African College of Applied Psychology) has announced the 2022 launch of two new Higher Certificate educational programmes in its Management and Leadership faculty offering school leavers a vocational pathway into the South African business sector.  


Across South Africa, thousands of successful matriculants are about to embark on a new and vital stage of their educational journey.  It’s widely recognised that gaining some kind of tertiary education enhances young people’s opportunities to find fulfilling work and meet their future career and life goals. 


Many young people today want careers that will empower them to make a positive difference in the world.  A wide range of socio-economic and political issues including social justice issues, as well as the climate change related crises are top-of-mind on a daily basis, compelling Millennial and Gen Z generations to want to roll up their sleeves and work to bring about change. 


The disruptions caused by the global pandemic over the past two years have fundamentally shifted our views, and our appreciation for what we can achieve in the online environment, especially when it comes to education. 


Never one to shy away from a challenge, Dr Poppy Masinga, Head of the Social Work and Community Development Faculty at SACAP (The South African College of Applied Psychology) has been appointed as the incoming President of the Association of South African Social Work Education Institutions (ASASWEI). 


While many of us regard higher education as essential for career success, in today’s fast-changing world, traditional degree and diploma programmes may not deliver results quickly enough to enhance job security or ensure a critical career advancement.


SACAP (The South African College of Applied Psychology) has taken on the content creation of a nano-course to shift hundreds of thousands of SA youth from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset. 


Teachers are at the frontlines of their communities’ responses to the COVID-19 crisis. As we move into the second pandemic year, there are millions of parents facing financial struggles, thousands of families impacted by the grief of losing loved ones and the constant stress arising from the fears, anxieties and frustrations affecting South Africans of all ages.


As we move into the second year of life upended by the global pandemic, SA’s school leavers are weighing their limited options.  While some will forge onto their chosen tertiary education path, others may be set back by not achieving a bachelor’s pass or be uncertain about what they want to study. 


A new degree offering from SACAP provides a business management education with a solid understanding of applied psychology.
