Register now for Kariega, Klerksdorp career expos
Excitement is building as Food For Mzansi’s popular AgriCareers roadshow is set to arrive in the Eastern Cape and North West in two weeks. Last minute registrations for these events – which will take place in Kariega and Klerksdorp – are now being accepted.
AgriCareers is the only traveling career expo in South Africa dedicated to agriculture for learners in grades 9-11, although many schools also choose to send their students who benefit greatly from the program.
The three-year-old Food For Mzansi initiative is powered by Laeveld Agrochem and owned in partnership with different educational institutions and companies, including Standard Bank and King Price Insurance.
At the events, learners get an A-Z of education and career opportunities in agriculture and also meet a wide variety of young professionals who share tips for getting on the fast track to success. From farmers to economists, accountants and even journalists and crop scientists, learners have a rare opportunity to discover a world of future possibilities.
