Our Employer Partners Talk Employability

With over 800 employer partnerships in place across our institutions, we are working to transform African higher education by turning challenges into new sources of value and developing a sustainable competitive advantage across the continent.

Some of these employer partners share their experiences with working with Honoris students and graduates, showing why it is more valuable than ever to equip Africa’s future workforce with the opportunities to thrive.

“I was introduced to FEDISA through a previous employer, The Foschini Group, we were looking to work with young students and prepare them for industry. We felt there was a gap, particularly in design.

We set up a programme to engage with students annually which is still successfully running today. We have employed many FEDISA students that have gone through their programmes and watched them grow with the exceptional standards brought through by FEDISA. We highly recommend FEDISA Fashion School. It’s the best fashion school in South Africa and certainly one of the top five in the world.”
