Spotlight on Student Support: Dr Linda Chipunza

At DaVinci Business School, student success isn’t just about compliance or ticking boxes - it’s about genuine care and development. Dr Linda Chipunza, a Learning Behavioural Specialist and our Student Support Lead is a key player in making this vision a reality. With a robust background in educational development and a passion for nurturing growth, Dr Chipunza is a cornerstone of the DaVinci community.

A Journey of Education and Empowerment

Dr Chipunza’s academic and professional journey is nothing short of inspiring. She obtained her DPhil et Litt Degree from the University of South Africa (UNISA), where both her doctoral and master’s research focused on enhancing individual potential through self-awareness and targeted support. This foundation laid the groundwork for her extensive career in education and development.

A Life Dedicated to Teaching and Learning

From the classroom to the training seminar, Dr Chipunza has dedicated her career to the art of education. She has enriched minds as a secondary school teacher and later as a teacher trainer in both primary and secondary Teacher Training Colleges. Her expertise took her to a regional university’s Department of Applied Linguistics, where she taught communication skills across various faculties.

Before joining DaVinci Business School, she honed her skills in people development at FNB, working in diverse specialist areas but always with a focus on skills development. Her roles have always centred on empowering others to excel in their respective fields.
