Speaking to Careers Portal, Dr Jacklyn Lotter, the Academic Dean of SACAP, said:

Our educators are all practitioners as well so they’re all practicing in their relevant fields and their relevant disciplines which means that into the classroom they really bring the real world experience so you’re getting a combination between the theory and the application of the theory.

SACAP uses a work integrated learning component which means that you’re placed in an organisation in the field in which you are studying and you gain an invaluable real world working experience in those settings while also positively giving back to the communities and the organisations in which you work.
