As South Africa looks to fill the skills gap by up-skilling young people with in-demand capabilities informed by the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the digital age, CapeTalk's Africa Melane hosts a conversation with key thought-leaders around the topic of education - and most pertinently, "How can we prepare our kids for the jobs of the future?"
His guests are: registered educational psychologist, life coach and trainer Dr Tshepiso Matentjie, Google Science Fair Grand Prize Winner Kiara Nirghin, University of KwaZulu-Natal Lecturer and founder of Mentor Me to Success Nosipho Bele and Khanyi Nzukuma, CEO of Glacier by Sanlam, previously a high school teacher.

The conversations were held as part of an intimate series called the iMadiba Project - a global art project that celebrates Nelson Mandela’s legacy through the promotion of meaningful conversation in artistic recreations of his Robben Island cell.
The size of these micro museums brings home the tiny space in which the former statesman lived for so many years – and is a reminder of the oppressive system that was in place, the work we have done in moving forward, and the work that is still ahead of us.
"Sanlam, as one of the sponsors of the iMadiba Project, is helping to facilitate macro conversations in these micro spaces, as we believe that everyone counts. This is what drives us to help South African’s improve their financial well-being, live better lives and secure the future for the next generation."
