All of us have dreams, but only a few of us set clear goals and work diligently towards achieving those dreams. April marked the highlight of IQ Academy’s academic calendar, the annual graduation ceremonies in Johannesburg and East London. These ceremonies are an opportunity to honour the commitment our graduates have shown and to celebrate their success.
Certificates were awarded across two qualifications: the FET Certificate in Human Resources Management and Practices Support and the Higher Certificate in Business Management. The graduates shared the day with their families, their invited guests and the Institution’s academic staff. The atmosphere was fantastic - watch the YouTube Video to experience a taste of it! Have a look at our Photo Gallery too!
Inspirational messages were delivered by Mr Ernst Kriek, the CEO of IQ Academy and the guest speakers, Mr Neil Grobbelaar (Johannesburg), CEO of The Real People Group and Ms Pam Kerr (East London), Founder and Managing Member of GKC Group. All of the speakers marked the importance of this milestone in our graduates’ lives. Top achiever awards were presented to Annah Sithole (Further Education and Training Certificate in Human Resources Management and Practices Support) and Tinei Mapfumo (Higher Certificate in Business Management). Two representatives of the Student Body, Mbuyiselo Workford Salaze (East London) and Thapelo Mohapi (JHB), also addressed the congregation. Their insight and delivery was a credit to them and their fellow students.
We asked Sithembiso Xoki, a graduating student on the Higher Certificate in Business Management how he was feeling after the East London ceremony: “Wonderful. I loved the way the ceremony was conducted. Graduates were treated like royalty.”
The management and staff at IQ Academy would like to congratulate our graduates. We wish them every success for the future.
