Welcome to Siyawela

Siyawela1 offers a range of skills, expertise and training programmes matched by few other training organisations.

Our training programmes have been piloted and refined over two decades. Impacts are monitored and evaluated so that programmes address the challenges faced by our communities. Community members, learners and parents attest to the life-changing impact of Siyawela training interventions.

Training methods depend on the nature of the programme and typically include:

  • Facilitating workshops
  • Coaching
  • Mentoring
  • Encouraging continuous learning
  • Co-ordinating on-the-job training

We are able to draw from a basket of programmes and select from, or adapt, one or more programmes to suit the particular needs of clients.

1Siyawela is the isiXhosa term for “crossing over”
