Continuing Education for Africa
At CEFA we understand the value of education. We believe that with the right education, people can become change agents in their communities and build on the legacy of our rainbow nation.
Our aim is to equip young people throughout South Africa with knowledge, skills and values to empower them to become involved in the development of people and communities.
Our training model is unique in the sense that training occurs in communities, is outcomes based, and programmes are accredited and on various National Qualification Framework (NQF) levels.
We offer a wide variety of courses. From our full time Social Auxiliary Work and Community Development courses to CPD training, short courses that include HIV & AIDS Support, Counselling, Adult Learning, Train the Trainer, Social Work Supervision and One Day Workshops.
As a registered private college, all our programmes comply with the requirements of the NQF, South African Qualification Authority (SAQA) and the relevant ETQA. Our training also takes place at the workplace which ensures that people are trained whilst they continue to work, thereby remaining economically independent.
Together with the training of learners, members of the community are empowered to be used as facilitators and are supported by our mentorship and coaching programmes. This way indigenous knowledge is embedded in the subject matter and sustainability of our projects are ensured.
