The Career Growth Passport Employability Initiative

Botho University is proud to launch a unique employability initiative called the Career Growth Passport (CGP). The Career Growth Passport targets students from first year and acts like an employability journal supporting them to complete various tasks throughout their program of study and helping them attain key employability skills as outlined in our Botho Graduate Profile (BGP). The Career Growth Passport is also a research project being piloted in our Botswana and Lesotho Campuses with 85 first year students on the program. The hope is to roll out the Career Growth Passport to all campuses in the near future.

All Botho University students who purchase the Career Growth Passport (CGP) from the Student and Alumni Affairs Department (SAAD) and achieve the maximum scores for completing all their yearly bucket list tasks are eligible for lots of exciting benefits. The Career Growth Passport is an exciting and new initiative of Botho University to motivate students to develop their employability profile, journal their progress, and stay on track.

Students who achieve high scores on their Career Growth Passport become “exclusively eligible” for fantastic professional development opportunities brought to them by Botho University. Such students can also look forward to our amazing corporate partners for offering these generous discounts as a recognition of the efforts to use the Career Growth Passport and improve their employability skills as per the Botho Graduate Profile (BGP). Please keep checking out this page for updates as we will keep adding new partners and benefits. Students have to show their Career Growth Passport completed with all yearly tasks and signed off by a valid member of the SAAD along with their ID to avail of these benefits.
