Our academic year includes sporting events, outdoor activities, business expos and markets etc. There is always something happening at SBS. When a student registers at SBS, they immediately become part of our community.
Work experience and promoting employability are key elements of all our full-time study programmes at SBS. Our mentors support students in sourcing relevant work experience and assist students to develop the necessary skills to contact employers.
Hands on learning
SBS culture is based on active learning, where students tackle the kinds of situations they’ll encounter in the workplace, all in a safe environment with a focus on learning opportunities. Many of our programmes offer internships and opportunities to work within industry so that when a student leaves SBS, they really are “work ready”.
Our full-time study programmes combine knowledge, skills, support, challenges and a set of attributes that help deliver confident and professional learners. Learners typically attend classes for 3–4 days per week. SBS learners will have a competitive advantage in the workplace due to our approach, which is dedicated to ensuring that learners are work-ready.
Part-time classes are normally offered after 16h30 during the week and on weekends at 08h30 and require careful planning. The reality for students, administrators and academics is that time is limited and there are competing responsibilities of family, work, study and community. Notwithstanding this, SBS has been privileged to have an excellent cohort of part time students with a 100 percent pass to-date.
