Boston City Campus Krugersdorp- Subsidise Higher Certificates 2020

Continuing with our successful start - Boston invests in South Africa’s future

A decision taken in Stellenbosch at the Academic Head Office of Boston turned education sideways in 2019 and opened new and varied opportunities for learners who needed a financial boost in order to proceed with Higher Education . At Boston, we have witnessed students overcome obstacles and push through to graduate. However, there are those students that have all the ingredients for success but are precluded from achieving a higher education qualification due to lack of financial support.

Education is too important for the growth and development of individuals and South Africa to be hindered by financial restraints. So the team at Boston set about to create a solution that would assist all students. We believe that prospective students deserve to be given an opportunity to succeed.

So, in the spirit of Ubuntu—a person is a person through other people—Boston has committed to partnering financially with companies who wish to see their employees succeed, and be able to contribute more to your company and its success.

This joint investment on the part of Boston and the corporate will mean that prospective students enrolling in one of the many Higher Certificates on offer at Boston will get a chance to pursue their dreams and take ownership of their futures. The corporate (you) benefits not only by having better qualified staff, but also they are able to earn more BEE points as well as claim the sponsored training on their WSP and ATR forms due on 30 April 2020.  Boston will invest up to a third of the fees for a Higher Certificate and corporates, invited  to sponsor students,  will be required to contribute the remaining fees.  I believe that in this programme Boston stands out as absolutely unique amongst the Higher Education providers in South Africa.

The benefits of providing study opportunities at Boston, including international accreditation, study anywhere anytime so no transport or time off work needed , access to tutors via skype, and more.

First Semester start 17 February 2020.

Ronnie Rhodes Masters research

The son of one of our Directors of the Golden Age Village and Memorial Flats is busy with a Masters Degree and needs to obtain comments on a questionnaire on Project Management techniques in small enterprises and start-up businesses. Please assist him by doing the survey – it will only take a few minutes

I am Ronnie Rhodes, I am currently completing my Masters dissertation; I would really appreciate a very short amount of your time in order to assist me in gathering research data. I am studying the use, or lack thereof, of project management techniques during the start-up phase of companies. The link that follows directs you to a short questionnaire, in the form of a Google Form, which should only take a minute or two to complete. This is completely voluntary and anonymous; zero personal data will be captured.

https://forms.gle/gjhtdYYCSsAWb4DP7

Lastly, if it is not too much trouble, please forward this link to any associate who may have been involved in the start-up of a company.

ESKOM Public Notice re Interruption of Bulk Electricity Supply to Randwest Municipality

You are probably aware of the Notice sent to Residents/Business clients in Randwest Municipal Area – we attach a copy of the notice for ease of reference. We also append a press release from the office of the Executive Mayor saying that “…that every possible action will be taken to avert the electricity outage…”

An amount of R 235 million is currently due to ESKOM by Randwest Municipality and they clearly do not have the current cash resources to pay ESKOM the full amount.

ESKOM will interrupt supply for 6 hours per weekday for the first week from 27 November and 14 hours per weekday from 4 December until the breach is remedied by the Municipality.

This is obviously an untenable situation especially for business and residential customers who have paid and continue to pay their monthly municipal bills.

The West Rand Chamber delivered a letter to the Executive Mayor, MMC for Finance and Municipal Manager today demanding an urgent meeting with the Executive Mayor in order to apply pressure on the municipality to get their house in order and to reach a settlement with ESKOM.

The Chamber will also make representations to ESKOM to find a solution to the problem of Business paying for their services but being “punished” by ESKOM for the failures of the Municipality.

We will provide feedback to our members after the meeting tomorrow with the Executive Mayor.
