#QE4SA Partners for Possibility Information Sessions


We are very excited to let you know that there are now 79 business leaders across South Africa working in partnership with school principals as part of a mutually-beneficial leadership development programme. The programme is life-changing for both the business leaders and the principals and we are constantly surprised by the impacts of these partnerships. This is truly an example of “Walking Together” to achieve change in Education.

We will be launching various Leadership Circles around the country during the next few months.
