    The PMR.africa Awards acknowledge organisations across all industries for their excellence. Winners are recognised for their competitiveness, effectiveness, leadership and resilience. The awards acknowledge the hard work of an institution and set a benchmark for others to aspire to.

    Eduvos, one of South Africa’s largest private higher education institutions, is proud of its efforts to provide quality, affordable education. Eduvos's mission is to shape potential – student by student – towards Africa’s prosperity. It aims to prepare students for the dynamic world, where they can thrive as active participants.

    “As a higher education institution, we want to ensure that after graduation, our students add value to industry and society,” says Eduvos CEO, Siegie Brownlee. “This award acknowledges that companies and government entities that employ Eduvos’ graduates see the difference and the competence in our graduates. It also acknowledges that our current students experience the holistic and practical approach to learning that we offer.

    "I am so proud of all our staff who work tirelessly to go the extra mile daily to offer a beneficial, future-fit learning experience to our students; and to the many companies that partner with us to provide real-world exposure and employment to our students. We are extremely grateful to PMR.africa for this acknowledgement and the award.”

    The award is bestowed based on the scores given to the nominated institutions by the participants. In May and June this year, PMR.africa interviewed respondents, mostly line managers and HR managers, from large companies, national, provincial and local government departments and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in South Africa, that employ graduates and students from various providers of private higher education.

    Respondents rated graduates from private higher education institutions across 12 criteria, including their application of knowledge in the workplace, innovation and academic knowledge.

    Johan Hattingh, CEO of PMR.africa, says that providers of private higher education in South Africa have emerged as pivotal role players in helping to address unemployment in the country. “Education is the biggest platform through which unemployment can be addressed. The results of PMR.africa’s survey on providers of higher education clearly indicate that Eduvos is preparing students and graduates to address the bigger challenges being faced in the workplace and society at large. A well-rounded student and graduate is required to ensure a responsible and sustainable future, and Eduvos is the leader in preparing its students accordingly.”

    PMR.africa will publish a special feature on providers of private higher education in South Africa in August 2023. Eduvos will be honoured at PMR.africa’s annual awards ceremony, the date of which is still to be announced.
