‘Responsible' and ‘sustainable' are words that get bandied around often. For Boston City Campus & Business College, however, they're not simply words, but core values that are lived out on a daily basis, says Kerry Damons, Boston's marketing head.
"That is how we contribute meaningfully to South Africa, not only on this year's Mandela Day, but every day, every minute of every year," she says. "We remain responsible and sustainable as a college by producing work-ready students that can contribute to the economy."
There is a success formula, albeit not a secret one, she adds.
"Boston City Campus & Business College is a successful corporate business that has identified elements that need be included in the profitable running of a college, and that allows us to, in turn, contribute to other businesses and initiatives," explains Damons.
Simply put, Boston's ‘responsible and sustainable' success formula consists of many components, including the following:
* Revising course content to ensure that Boston grads have the skills in order to work efficiently and effectively when they enter the world of work;
"Some of our corporate social responsibility is almost unquantifiable," Damons points out. "We believe so strongly in the value of identifying your ‘job-match' that we offer it to the public at large and not only school-leavers. Choosing an appropriate career path prevents students from dropping out from a course and wasting time and money. It also raises – considerably so – the chance of success in exams and the speed at which students become qualified to enter the workplace. How do you put a value to that? We are proud of the many awards we have received as a college throughout the years, but most of all we are proud of the fact that we live up to the standards of corporate responsibility and sustainability. We'll go as far as to say that we think that our icon, Nelson Mandela, who was so passionate about education, would be proud of us too."
