SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT EXCELLENCE
Extract from the IEPUK Newsletter - December 2012
IEPUK (International Exchange Programme UK) were honoured to work with the Al Maktoum School of Management Excellence and the Childwick Trust in sponsoring Top Student of 2011, Thabani Nzimande to undertake a placement at the National Stud, Newmarket during 2012. We are delighted to be involved again in sponsoring The School of Management Excellence Top Student, Jason May, through our Tier 5 Government Authorised Exchange to go to the National Stud, Newmarket 2013. Jason emerged as the Top Student of 2012 although it was a closely contested race with fellow student Thabiso Nako just missing out. Jason has a talent for handling difficult horses and is particularly interested in international breeding. During his placement he will be completing his IntSCA Development Programme which validates the skills he achieves.
Graduating as Top Student 2011 from the Al Maktoum School of Management Excellence, Thabani Nzimande has set a serious benchmark for his successors. As the first recipient to benefit from the Childwick Trust Scholarship, IEPUK were delighted to sponsor him through their Tier 5 Government Authorised Exchange to attend the National Stud in Newmarket. Thabani worked hard and completed his training, and gained the National Stud’s Best Practical Student 2012 Award. A natural horseman and hardworking individual, on returning home to South Africa at the end of his placement he was appointed Assistant Sales Manager with Summerhill Stud. He is enjoying his new role especially his involvement with customers at the sales. He is still keeping in touch with fellow students.
