Collaborating to empower youth – IIE Rosebank College and Isipho Admin

IIE Rosebank College and Isipho Admin have collaborated to empower South African youth. We believe our vision of changing lives and theirs of improving lives by providing entry into the executive assistant profession is a definite recipe for success.

"We love the difference Isipho is making, and any partnership that involves educating and empowering young individuals is close to our hearts. We also love partnering with organisations that align with our values and purpose, says Greg Fillmore, Managing Director at IIE Rosebank College.

Isipho Admin is a non-profit organisation with a dream of uplifting communities by assisting youth to study towards a qualification that will see them enter the executive assistant profession. Isipho is funded by "Isipho Angels", which are admin and training professionals situated in various countries around the world.

Anel Martin and Terri Wells' dream of giving back came to light in 2016, when they awarded their first bursary to Lerato. Lerato completed her qualification and now works at a big corporate in South Africa and, fortunately, also believes in giving back to her community. Lerato and others like her contribute a portion of their salaries to the organisation to keep the dreams of other deserving students alive.

IIE Rosebank College, a brand of The Independent Institute of South Africa (The IIE), has long believed in making quality education accessible. The choice of study mode, such as blended or online learning, gives students the flexibility to work and study. This flexibility also empowers them to gain experience while studying. With over 19 000 students across nine campuses studying online, face-to-face and through blended learning – IIE Rosebank College is staying true to their purpose of making education more accessible for all.

Like IIE Rosebank College with its Graduate Empowerment Programme (GEP), Isipho Admin also believes in grooming well-rounded individuals by pairing each student with a mentor. This provides students with the opportunity to learn life skills and prepare for the world of work. As the African proverb says, it takes a village to empower youth – together with their sponsors, Isipho has empowered and impacted 16 lives since 2016.

IIE Rosebank College is looking forward to what the new norm has to offer and is committed to completing the 2020 academic year. We are open for 2021 applications and registrations. We urge students to apply and take advantage of any early-bird application fee discounts that may be running.
