We love keeping good company, so if you’re a high school learner, based in Cape Town,  who is interested in getting into the Sport Science, Fitness and Wellness industry, our job shadow programme is for you. For 2 days you will enjoy presentations given by the various professionals based at the SSISA (with a question and answer slot), walk-abouts and activities that will give you the chance to see what a job in the Sport Science Fitness industry actually involves. The job shadow days typically start at 09h00 and finish by 15h00.
