What we offer
AERLA’s flagship program is the full time boarding high school (grades 8-12). However we offer other unique courses:
- A bridging course, post matric/high school graduation and first year university- The bridging program prepares students for university life, both mentally and academically, as well as provides them with unique knowledge of the aviation/aerospace/engineering sectors. It is a full time five month course.
- Aerospace/aviation/military camps- The most popular timeframe is a three day/two night camp, but we tailor courses based on the wants and needs of the school or institution and their age group.
- Teacher training/workshops- At AERLA, we want to give back, and feel we can help improve math and science education in South Africa and around the continent. We help do this by offering teacher training workshops on various topics like teaching methodology, specifically focusing on our areas of expertise.
- Events- We often hold events on various topics related to aerospace, aviation, defense, education or space. Events to date have included an overview of the future of space travel with guests from Virgin Galactic Unite and Xcor and a general discussion on the aerospace/aviation/defence industries in Africa with a panel from Paramount Group and the Southern African Women in Aviation and Aerospace (SAWIA).
