Nelson Mandela University – George Campus Keen for Partnership within Seed4Africa Project

Learning Academy Worldwide’s outreach plan to expand the associate partnership goal was met with a positive reply from the Nelson Mandela University, George Campus in South Africa.

The University’s vocational training in agriculture and forestry programmes are ideally suitable to benefit from the partnership,

Dr Ernest Dube, agronomist and lecturer at the University has had several conversations with Learning Academy Worldwide and intended to meet up with Theophilus Van Rensburg Lindzter upon his visit to GreenTech 2023 in Amsterdam in June. Some of the earlier conversations involved engaging with FESTO’s South African Pneumatic and automation technology training program. 

The potential of this new partnership is vested in the existing relationship and alliance with the Nelson Mandela University. Earlier this year, Learning Academy Worldwide and the University connected with Festo to begin thinking through the design of new microdentials for vocational training in Agriculture.
