BCOM IN LAW OR LLB?

THE KEY DIFFERENCES

Here are the key differences between an BCom in Law and an LLB degree. Choose wisely, as your future depends on it.

The BCom Law

The LLB Degree

If you are keen on the idea of law but are also curious about a career in business, this degree will tick both boxes.

The alternative route to gaining entry into the legal realm. Those set on law often choose this degree if they know becoming a lawyer is what they really want.

Greater career flexibility once your degree is completed as you’ll be free to pursue whatever avenues you like.

It’s more focussed too. It deals only with law, unlike BCom Law that adds business into the mix.

You might have to study a little further though if you decide on law This degree blends theory and practical application of law. You get as your final career destination. There could also be some room for the best of both legal worlds. you to specialise in the kind of law you’re passionate about. This degree will help you kickstart your journey as a lawyer.

You could still use your LLB for a career in business, management, politics or consulting thanks to the legal knowledge you’ll gain. If you have a strong interest in languages and social sciences or commercial and economic disciplines and you would like to eventually practice law in one of these fields, it is a good idea to enroll first for BA (Law) or BCom (Law).

CAREER IN

PERSONAL TRAINING By Gill Mckay I completed a Personal Training certificate at ETA College, during Covid in 2020 with all its limitations. Like everyone globally, I was cut off from society and given that I live alone, this made the struggle even more real. Simple things like producing videos, taking pics, running 5K on my lounge floor because I didn’t have a treadmill, were real life challenges I had to overcome during my studies, as the accountability towards the practical part of the course would be absolutely necessary to afford me a pass with distinction. Yeah, I was not settling with a “pass”. What I learnt is that this industry is people driven. Yes, there is a place for online, but the majority of people out there, need that personal interaction with their Personal Trainer. Modules on intrinsic and extrinsic motivations, being inside a person’s personal space and I can go on, that may seem irrelevant to you while you are studying, are vitally important when you embark on this career. Understanding energy sources, something I utilise a lot today, to assist clients with weight loss – bear in mind, I was not impressed with having to do the Nutrition module, boy am I glad I did lol! Yesterday I met an obese mother of 36, who had tears in her eyes all through our meeting. ETA teach empathy over compassion, and it is extremely difficult to be more empathetic than compassionate. I guess this will come

with years of experience, however I would rather keep the compassion than run the risk of becoming nonchalant with any of the ladies I have met and hopefully inspired. What I learnt through this, is that everyone who is either committed to weight gain, over enthusiastic gym goers, and the list goes on, are driven by intrinsic thoughts of how they perceive themselves. And there are a lot of these people! But on a lighter note, when a sedentary or overweight client tells you, after maybe three weeks of training, “the light went on”, they now know their “why” they did what they did to themselves and more importantly, they now know “why” they are training with you….. that is just beautiful and it’s a GAME CHANGER….!!! This is when your client has a mind shift and they progress from training being the last thing on their to do list – after work – to getting up early in the morning to meet you at the gym at 5am. This is when you know you made a difference, they now love themselves enough to create their own time. I was bowled over when Virgin offered me a position in their organization. Having a major player, as in Virgin, believe in your capabilities, because you have obviously shown your commitment to your OWN personal training, is the best compliment ever.

INTERESTING IT CAREERS IN THE NEW WORLD OF WORK The evolution of technology, data and the internet have come to shape the way we work. Not only is this true for our daily tasks and processes but this also extends to career choices as well. At The IIE’s Varsity College, studying an IIE computer science degree prepares candidates for fascinating new fields that never existed 20 years ago. This is something we take pride in as we watch more and more graduates go on to do big things with their bachelor of information technology qualifications. If you’ve ever considered a computer science degree, here are some interesting career paths that you should know about. 1. There is such thing as an ethical hacker Yes, you can consider ethical hacking as a career opportunity. This line of work involves working for a business or organisation to safeguard their data and valuable information. In short, you’ll be paid to hack your employer to help find weak spots or potential avenues for opportunistic cyber criminals. You’ll also be playing an active role in fighting cybercrime. What could be more exciting than that? 2. App development is in demand Another new-age career that’s significantly gained momentum is that of app development. Think of how many apps you engage with on a daily basis to live your life and get things done. What if you could be part of making someone’s life easier, happier or better yet, provide a solution to a world problem? If you work in this field you’ll get to meet with a client, assess their app needs, create

the app that suits them and then test and launch it. 3. We’re all becoming more dependent on the cloud Cloud computing services is an area of IT that is vital for many businesses and people today. The level of demand means you can expect to earn an attractive salary for working in this field. If you join the ranks of cloud-based service providers, you’ll be the reason big corporates and even smaller businesses can access their networks, servers and storage. You’ll also be the one who saves the day when things crash and people need to recover documents. After all, not all heroes wear capes. 4. It’s all about that user experience They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, apparently, functionality is too. Are you someone who appreciates a logical, attractive and well-planned web or app layout? If you are, a career as a user experience (UX) designer might just be for you. If you work in this field, you’ll focus on how people interact with a product, how it’s used and how a consumer feels during this process. Through this, you can make improvements, increase use and convert more sales for your business. As the online world gets more and more saturated with brands trying to sell themselves ahead of the competition, UX is a clear way to gain an advantage. This makes UX designers a hot commodity for those looking to expand their market share and drive customer loyalty. Make your IT dream a reality

CAREER OVERVIEW:

MECHANICAL DESIGNER Ruan Stone, a CAD4ALL Alumni, currently working overseas, had this to say about his time at CAD4ALL and how his studies influenced his current career. I have not pursued the life of an architect, but a mechanical designer. My job starts when a client wants us to automate his product. Let’s use a Castle Lite beer as an example. The client wants us to take the bottle, rinse it and fill it automatically at 500 bottles per minute. Then it has to be closed and labelled. Afterwards it has to be packed and vacuum sealed in packs of six and then placed on a carton. We start by using SketchUp to give the client a proposal idea, so they know what we are planning to do. Afterwards we use a program called SolidWorks to design and develop every part of the machine and build it virtually in 3D. Once all the designing is finished, we play with the layout of the machines on

AutoCAD and send all parts for laser cutting and powder coating. The parts arrive back, and we start building the machines, do the electrical and start testing. If all goes well then the clients are happy. CAD4ALL taught me things that are still new in some industries. A lot of people in architecture and mechanical have not seen the 3D world, don’t not know shortcuts or how to do certain things on the programs. There are people who did not have the opportunity to learn these programs like we did at CAD4ALL. I stand out when it comes to my program knowledge and the speed at what you can draw. Once again, thank you CAD4ALL.

NO MID-YEARS? NO PROBLEM.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST OF EXTRA MATRIC TEACHING TIME The Matric mid-year exams normally provide a valuable opportunity for Grade 12s to get in the right frame of mind for their all-important final exams later in the year, and for them to get a good idea of how far they’ve come and how much ground still needs to be covered. However the Department of Basic Education has announced that the Matric mid-year exams will once again fall away this year as a result of the impact of Covid, lockdowns and other mitigation measures, to allow for additional teaching time so that Matrics can complete the whole curriculum. An education expert says while it is unfortunate that Matrics will once again lose the opportunity to write an official mid-year exam as a result of our current circumstances, Matrics can, with the right approach, turn this negative into a positive and use the extra time to their advantage. “Unfortunately, like the Class of 2020 before them, the Class of 2021 are again facing the most important year of their school careers under very difficult and unusual circumstances,” says Nola Payne, Head of Faculty: Information and Communications Technology at The Independent Institute of Education, SA’s largest and most accredited private higher education provider. “As pointed out by Minister Angie Motshekga, many Grade 12s would have lost as much as 60% of teaching time this year, on top of the fact that they didn’t finish last year’s curriculum. Additionally, they also had to sacrifice holiday time to make up for lost teaching days. All things considered, it is clear that this year’s Matrics are again under a lot of strain, and being called upon to perform to the best of their ability under rather difficult circumstances,” says Payne. However there are ways in which they can mitigate the impact of their circumstances, and ensure they make as much as possible with what they do have available before sitting for their final exams later this year, she says. “It is important to realise that you are not alone, and that it is okay to not feel okay all the time. But then also to make the choice that you are going to do the best that you can with the resources and support you do

have available, and even to get a little creative in the process,” says Payne. STEP ONE: MAKE THE BEST OF TEACHING TIME “Get as much as possible from your contact classes, and be sure to do all you can to grasp key concepts. If you don’t understand something, keep asking for assistance and clarification until you do. If you are studying at home and you find there is something you don’t understand, keep a list of questions to ask your teachers when you are back in class again. “Don’t just move on to the next thing and think you are going to come back to challenging work later – steadfastly build on your knowledge so that you can continue with confidence.” STEP TWO: TAKE CARE OF YOUR MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL WELLBEING Matric is a tough year even under normal circumstances. This year’s Matrics didn’t only have to face the unprecedented challenges of last year, but have now had to contend with an environment filled with uncertainty, unusual requirements such as masking and interrupted teaching time, and fear of the future for close on a year and a half. “Unfortunately, things didn’t return to normal at the strike of midnight on December 31 2020, and the tough times continue to this day. The events of the past year have left their mark on the psyches of all, and Matrics should understand that it is okay to not be okay given the circumstances. “So if you are feeling overwhelmed

or anxious, recognise and acknowledge this fact, and reach out to a trusted adult for support and assistance. Try to look after your physical wellbeing as much as possible, by getting enough sleep, fresh air, and exercise if you are up to it. When things get too much, take a timeout, practise deep breathing, and return to the task at hand when you are feeling better.” STEP 3: GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR LEARNING Payne says that even though most Matrics in South Africa won’t be writing their mid-year exams, anyone can still set up their own mock exams – alone or with friends. “Make a fun activity of it, by getting past exam papers from your school library, your teacher or online, and simulate an exam environment. Sit down with your clock and all the supplies necessary, and pretend you are in fact writing an exam within the allotted time. “This will give you a good framework from which to proceed with your learning, because you’ll be able to see whether you need to work faster, get a feel for the different formats of questions, and also insight into which work requires additional attention. After completing the paper, you and your study partners can go over the questions together, which is an additional learning opportunity.” STEP 4: FIND AND USE ADDITIONAL RESOURCES Last year, and continuing this year, the national and provincial education departments ensured that they loaded

a host of additional resources on their websites – from exam and study tips to past papers and other resources. Additionally, the public broadcaster regularly schedules lectures which can be viewed for free. “Look further than just your own province’s website and see whether you can find additional resources on the websites of education departments in other provinces,” says Payne. “There is also a myriad of videos on YouTube which can assist with those subjects or concepts in which you need additional help.” STEP 5: KEEP THE END GOAL IN MIND Things are tough right now, and the circumstances not ideal for performing at your best. However, by keeping the future in mind and connecting that to your daily efforts, you’ll be able to keep the momentum while building on the small victories of each day, says Payne “Always remember what you are working towards. By doing your best every day, you’ll be able to finish your year to the best of your ability, which will open up opportunities for the future. Start considering your options for next year, and remember that universities and private higher education institutions are aware of the continuing difficulties facing this year’s Matrics. If you need help with your future vision, or even motivation to complete the year with a bang, don’t hesitate to visit a respected campus near you for help, support and guidance.”
