Education

Design Education and developing the design education pipeline is a core objective of the Design Support programme.

Career Awareness


Fostering design skills and competencies in the youth is integral to the future success of the region. We need a strong cohort of visual designers, engineers and industrial designers to translate ideas into tangible products and services.

To promote the uptake of careers in the design sector the CDI engages with High Schools in the following ways:


Africa A+ Schools

The Africa A+ Schools network is an initiative that supports member schools in nurturing their students’ creativity, primarily through the arts, in the belief that this is what children need for lifelong success. This project was incubated at the CDI.

Africa A+ Schools views the nurturing of creativity in schools as one way of responding to South Africa’s social and economic challenges. To alleviate unemployment, poverty and social injustice the country needs people with an entrepreneurial and problem-solving mindset who have individual agency and can come up with innovative solutions.
