ARiYA’s pledge of helping to build Africa was the catalyst for the establishment of its training division. Having worked extensively with skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled employees within the construction and real estate sectors, the desire to transfer skills became an ever-growing passion of the organisation, as well as a necessity for the purpose of holistically contributing to the growth of our beloved continent.
ARiYA’s resources involved in the rendering of this service bring with them vast experience in training, development and resource management. ARiYA’s training division seeks to focus primarily on skills development in a national context.
ARiYA’s trainers are fully accredited Facilitators and Assessors, who have obtained decades of experience within these roles. ARiYA’s range of accredited skills programmes seek to equip learners and industry participants with the skills required for Learnerships in terms of the National Qualifications Framework. The training division’s head office is based in central Cape Town, with a small training facility for small groups requiring one-on-one training interventions. ARiYA has a vast network of modern training facilities from which to choose throughout South Africa, for larger training interventions.
These training facilities are centrally situated making them easily accessible to all participants. These facilities have been specifically selected to ensure that learners who rely on public transport will be able to attend with ease. ARiYA understands the needs of the majority of learners within South Africa, and tailor makes their training to suit the needs & requirements of learners. This pertains not only to the location of training venues but to the time slots allocated to training interventions, and the format of the training itself. It is ARiYA’s vision to not only up-skill employees in the middle to upper income sector, but to ensure that skills transfer can be undertaken at all income levels.
This vision requires a new and unique paradigm for the design & conduction of training interventions. It is a multicultural approach, taking into account not only the standard customary dietary needs, but also the delegates’ time and location requirements, as well as the learner’s specific terms of reference. With this in mind, training programmes are tailored to suit the needs of all participants throughout South Africa’s unique contextual settings, thus making the process of up-skilling not only more accessible, but less stressful for learners. It is ARiYA’s belief that a stress-free process is conducive to effective and sustainable up-skilling. ARiYA prides itself in a new and innovative method of training, which ensures that the skills learned are integrated into the learner’s “skills tool belt” prior to exiting the training programme.
