We are only in the merry month of May and already 2015 is proving an exciting year for this small Nelspruit based College! An additional new campus, an upgraded name and a new qualification will be on offer in 2016. Never one to let the grass grow under her feet, when the opportunity came to open a Xela campus in Stellenbosch, Western Cape, principal Alex Asman jumped at the chance. Part of the newly established C-Campus in Stellenbosch, Xela will be one of 5 smaller colleges offering courses in various careers.
But wait, there’s more! Also from 2016 Xela Fashion College will be offering a whole new course of study – Interior Design! In collaboration with Ansje Serfontein of Getting Creative Interior Design Studio, who will be heading up the Interior Design curriculum which will be available at both campuses.
At the school career expos we visit regularly, the often asked question is “do you offer Interior Design?” and now we can say YES!
In keeping with these exciting new developments, Xela will be getting a new name – XELA COLLEGE OF DESIGN. Xela Fashion College is putting Nelspruit fashion on the map. From a small start 7 years ago with just 3 students and no syllabus to speak of, to a City & Guild International qualification, a clutch of talented and qualified lecturers passionate about what they do and now spreading our wings nationally, this College is going places!
