“I am a twenty-eight year old man, born to a family of two – a boy and a girl. I was the first born. I lost my mother before I started primary school and my father abandoned us when I was seven years old. I started living with my grandmother, my mother’s mother, and my uncle decided to send me to school. He died when I was in grade seven. There is a lot to tell about me but to cut a long story short, I have done a lot to make sure that, despite hardships, I could get an education, though this path has never been easy. I started studying at the Daughters of Mary Immaculate – St Eugene University, majoring in Science. However, in fourth year I dropped out as I no longer had the finances. But instead of just sitting back, I decided to start studying with Alison. This and other stories are what makes me as Isaac Kaputula.”
How did you learn about Alison?
I am always online and, one day, I was searching for schools where I could study online in my own time and at an affordable price. I saw an advertisement pop up showing me a place that I could study online for free and I started the programme but then realised there was no certification. So I started looking again for a place that would certify me so that I would be able to find a job. Eventually, I saw an advertisement to study online for free with Alison and I signed up. That’s how I heard about Alison.
What was your first course on Alison, and why did you choose it?
Diploma in Marketing. I chose this course because I wanted to gain quality experience as well as being able to compete well in finding a job that would require me to have marketing qualifications.
How have Alison courses affected your career?
After getting my diploma, I am able to compete with other graduates in my country, even though some of them went to high class universities.
What’s your favourite way to relax from studying?
I love to visit different places, read books, play chess and meet new people.
Where are you working and what are you studying now?
I have just started working in Administration for Mafundzalo Ranch Company Ltd and I am also studying Information Technology with Alison.
What’s next for you, in terms of education or work?
I’m hoping to do my master’s in Marketing.
If you could learn absolutely anything in the world from an Alison course, what would it be?
How to be practical.
What would you say to someone if they asked you about Alison? Would you recommend it and why?
I would advise them to start studying at Alison to get the qualification they need. I always recommend, and will forever recommend, Alison. Alison gives opportunities to all the people who need education in their lives, inexpensively and flexibly.
