The world is facing a pandemic and everyone’s had to adapt. Red & Yellow’s purpose has always been to change the world through education — the world needs this now more than ever before. As such, Gearing Schools for The Unpredictable Future will be streamed, online, for all to “attend”. The event will take place on 8 April, 15:30 – 17:45. See booking details below.

Powered by the Capitec Foundation, Red & Yellow and their expert panel will be interrogating how to work within the existing SA high school curriculum to truly prepare the next-gen workforce with the appropriate digital and future-focused skills.

The Capitec Foundation Trust shares Red & Yellow’s passionate commitment for equipping students with future-focused skills and industry-relevant practical know-how. As an independent institution, we are deeply grateful to receive their sponsorship for our event, Gearing Schools for the Unpredictable Future,  on 19 March. This kind of industry-support allows us to drive valuable transformation through education, without the back-up of government funding. 

The Capitec Foundation was established in 2015 as an independent, non-profit organisation. One of their missions is to “Develop school leaders within educational institutions in the communities that Capitec Bank serves”. To this end, Red & Yellow and Capitec have joined forces to host four hard-hitting speakers to explore if it’s possible to work within the set curriculums and drive internal policies that foster progressive skills and aptitudes like creative and critical thinking, empathy, conflict resolution, negotiation and leadership. 

First up is Bruce Probyn,  known for his charismatic and empathetic leadership style. With 26 years as a school principal, and 7 years heading up The Principals Academy as Head Coach, Bruce is focused on mentoring for change.

Followed by CEO of Heavy Chef, Fred Roed. Fred is super-smart, funny, and fearless when it comes to fighting for things that really matter — education being top of his list. After founding a successful digital agency, he turned his full attention to a different project. Heavy Chef is a learning platform for entrepreneurs, focused on engineering regular learning, leadership and tech experiences in a variety of formats. 

The third speaker is Mari Lategan, Executive Marketing and Communications at Curro Holdings. She has an impressive track-record in the media industry, including Publisher of the Women’s Magazine Division at Media24, and Founder of In Context, a strategic business and communications consultancy. 

Last but not least is business leader, entrepreneur and international expert on youth entrepreneurship and social innovation, Ian Calvert. His talk, Future-proofing our youth: balancing technology with humanity, is based on 32 years of experience and his passion to build purpose-driven entrepreneurs, equipped with the capacity and resilience to achieve their full potential in this unpredictable future. 

If you’re a principal, teacher, guidance counsellor or are in any way interested in education, don’t miss this event.
