Department of Student Affairs and the Career Development Programme in CHED hosted the UCT Emerging Student Leaders Programme from 14 to 18 July, bringing together 70 students from all faculties across the university with the aim of promoting leadership skills.

The week-long programme comprised of seminars and workshops which focussed on giving participants a greater understanding of various leadership theories and styles, and insight into notions of leadership and citizenship.

Another central focus of the programme was the promotion of diversity and a respect for the environment.

The programme, which targeted all students as potential leaders, was funded by the Career Development Programme Employer Partnership Programme.
