“Partnerships are about making a better world and better people; a better you and me.” Prof John Volmink.
IPN2012 has come and gone!
MIET AFRICA would like to thank all our delegates, speakers and organizers, partners and sponsors who made the 11th International education business Partnership Network conference, held from the 25-28 September 2012 such a great success.
Partnerships form the foundation upon which MIET AFRICA builds its work. This includes partnerships with government, business, NGOs, development agencies and school communities. It was therefore a real privilege to partner with the International education business Partnership Network on their 2012 conference.
The conference theme of “Learn to Earn” was especially significant as we struggle to bridge the gap between South Africa’s education and training system and the workplace. As the local host, we were delighted to welcome such a diverse group of delegates to Durban – from a wide range of countries and cultures and representing a variety of sectors. The conference programme provided opportunity for interesting and lively discussions, where sharing and learning were the order of the week. We also congratulate all 2012 Global Best Award winners and the Maths and Science Leadership Academy of Kimberly, South Africa, who won the International Enterprise Challenge @ IPN2012.
The beautiful Moses Mabhida stadium provided a great venue and the weather also played its role in ensuring a good time was had by all. We now look forward to meeting up with old and new-found friends at IPN2014 in Europe!
