Potchefstroom Academy and SAAHST

The business divisions (shown below) were created for students to hone their skills for public-oriented services thereby combining their theory learned in the classroom environment with very real practical experience. At the Academy we prepare our students for careers and provide them with the skills needed to succeed whether this be for a company or as future entrepreneurs.

Potch Academy is constantly seeking ways for students to gain the work experience they require in order to be successful.
