Community Involvement – Corporate Social Responsibility
Business Communication Skills has always had and will continue to have a strong community orientation.
Beth-Ann Galvin (BCS’s Managing Director) has been an active trustee with Sparrow Schools almost since its inception 25 years ago. Beth has served as an active trustee during this time and is the currently serves as Chairman of the Board of Trustees. BCS is grateful to be a part of this life changing organisation which has evolved from a place of supplementary learning for children who were adversely affected by the township riots during the apartheid era, to becoming an fully-equipped schooling facility that offers youth with ‘barriers to learning’ a quality education and employable skills.
Most notably, Sparrow has successfully launched South Africa’s first accredited FET (Further Education Training) College that focuses specifically on providing practical vocational skills training aimed at equipping students with useful skills (such as automotive and catering), that give them a solid entry into the workplace.
