For the next three months never@home Cape Town will be home to over 250 iXperience students. iXperience is an international career preparation academy with the goal of empowering young adults with practical, applicable and useful skills that they can use as soon as they enter the job market. The school’s vision is to “challenge traditional education not just in South Africa and the United States, but all over the world”.
Their summer programme is based here in Cape Town, with the course designed to immerse students both in the classroom and culturally. never@home is extremely proud to be able to accommodate these students and be part of their once in a life time experience in South Africa.
The iXperience students will have their classes held within the newly designed Watershed at the V&A Waterfront. Classes will include tracks in Coding, Data Science, UX Design, Product Management, Finance, and Consulting.
The cultural aspect of their course will come through varied excursions within the ever so diverse Mother City, such as: shark-cage diving, hiking, surfing, safaris and many more. So it won’t be all work and no play……
In preparation for the students arrival, never@home and iXperience have been working closely together to ensure the hostel is comfortably, securely and aesthetically ready for these exciting months which lie ahead. The hostel has used this opportunity to have a bit of a makeover with the communal kitchen’s new look being our personal favourite. Here is a sneak peak of some of the other cool changes you are likely to see on your next visit……
The first batch of iXperience students arrived at never@home this last weekend and today is their orientation day. “This is just the beginning” of their exciting adventure in Cape Town.
The second group will arrive at the end of June and the final group in late July. We will reopen as usual to the public on 20 August 2016.
iXperience is a career accelerator that enables young people to tap their full potential through meaningful educational experiences. We bridge the gap between college education and the professional world by combining cutting-edge courses taught by industry experts with internships at top-tier firms. – iXperience’s blurb
