Welcome to Calvin's
08-10-2016 ....News Update 35
Hello. Calvin here. In my newsletters I like being informative about what is happening in the various areas of my business as well as giving my perspective on key business/education issues.
Having spent about half of my life as a graphic designer, I have come to realize that I have mastered my craft over the years and it was now time to teach and guide the new, younger generation.
I have always been teaching computer graphic design on a part-time basis since 1995, however, I have thrown myself more into the education industry (since 2010) lecturing graphic design at various colleges like Prestige Academy and Damelin.
BUT this year, for the first time, I have started my own full time College, focusing on specialist computer skills like AutoCAD and Adobe Design software AND Entrepreneurship as well.
This was greatly motivated by the unfair prices parents had to pay and the poor content, lecturing and lack of facilities of colleges everywhere.
Excuses and empty promises had become the order of the day and nobody cared whether the young people were properly trained or had exposure to the graphic desiign industry especially the Ad Agencies.
I have vowed to give my Academy students the very best skills and resources and internship connections at a price NEVER to exceed R18 000 a year ( currently my students pay R14 000 a year with large discounts included ) .....it is time we get the problem of 26% youth unemployment in the Western Cape down to 0% AND help to carry the financial burden felt especially by single/divorced parents.
At CalvinAcademy we treat your children (who have become young adults) as our own, with their own unique abilities and dreams. We support them by equipping them with the right computer skills like AutoCAD, Solidworks and Adobe software and the right internships to test their abilities and learn more.
Don't wish your child just gets a job one day -but make sure he/she has a future!!!
Enrolment is now open for 2017 so please send me an email saying " Yes Calvin, I want my child to have a future with opportunities and not just the vague, unsure promises that many other colleges stand for....I want to know what CalvinAcademy is all about.....tell me more"
