Industry and literature have been reshaping the workplace by introducing terms such as modern workplace and artificial intelligence (AI).

From listening to leading: Milpark's responsive approach to education
Being a higher education student in a country that has been called the most unequal country in the world is not easy. For millions of students in South Africa, the challenge is not only to obtain financial funding to further their studies, but to find a way of surviving while they are studying and possibly supporting family members too. This is no mean feat considering that unemployment and especially youth unemployment in South Africa is staggeringly high at 60% according to most recent numbers. 28 Sep 2023 Read more

Half workload: A new path to CTA success
If you had told me at the beginning of bridging, that this journey would end, I would have agreed - every journey eventually ends. If you had told me that it would end successfully, I probably would have disagreed because I didn't have confidence in myself to believe in myself. If you had told me that it would have ended so successfully, I probably would have laughed at you - because that seemed like a crazy thought, especially since I had closed this chapter over ten years ago when I failed my first attempt. 8 Aug 2023 Read more
