One of the core aspects of TSiBA is the model of volunteerism. Many of our lectures, mentors and tutors are volunteers who give of their time each week through out the TSiBA year.
At TSiBA there are three ways to volunteer:
Volunteers are recruited into our Curriculum Team as lecturers or tutors. Through this model, we are able to combine the theoretical knowledge imparted as part of the curriculum with the industry knowledge and experience of the volunteer. This enables us to enrich the students’ experience.
Mentors and Support Services Volunteers
Volunteers are recruited into our Student Support Team primarily as mentors, but also as additional support resources that are made available to our students (e.g. doctors, dentists etc). The mentorship programme is a key element of our offering and is firmly embedded within our culture and enables each of our students a chance to enhance their self development and leadership skills.
TSiBA Cape Town is often in need of additional assistance in the business and operational side of our organisation and recruits volunteers who are willing to give of their time to assist us in the operations of TSiBA as a whole e.g.: assisting cataloguing books in our library, invigilating exams, distribution of materials, stock take etc.
Given the importance of the various roles played by volunteers within our business, TSiBA Education does require all volunteers – particularly those involved with lecturing, tutoring and mentoring – to participate in induction and development sessions through the year.
