We also heard from Culverwell Bowa – Researcher for the South African Graduates Development Association or SAGDA. The organisation has over the period of more than a decade strove to tackle the challenge of graduate unemployment and unemployability. They offer programmes such as job readiness, life and business skills, career advice and guidance, exposure to entrepreneurship opportunities, network opportunities to its members, experiential learning (internships) and placement opportunities to graduates. They say they have had great achievements over the years and in the very same equation though, they have faced many challenges. Culverwell explained more on those challenges.
