ABOUT THE SDN/ASA
The African Sustainability Academy (ASA), (in partnership with the Sustainable Development Network) is an international NGO registered in South Africa (NPC: K2011/122880/08) and in the US (501c3 Number: 3388896) offering Accredited and Certificate Courses and training programs for non-profits, corporates, government agencies, youth and community members across Africa. After thorough research into the skills and training needs of NGOs, communities, youth, corporates and government agencies, the founders of the ASA determined that the importance of skills development in these sectors cannot be over-emphasized. As employees transition through various phases of their careers, their roles, responsibilities and expected outputs change. With these changes, employees often require increased capacity and additional skills. Moreover, unemployed youth and community members without work experience or job-ready skills require capacity development programs that will enable them to find meaningful employment. In order to meet these challenges, the ASA has designed accredited and certificate courses aimed at upskilling existing NGO, government and corporate employees (from junior to senior management staff and board members); enabling them to perform more effectively and efficiently in the workplace, and courses for community members and unemployed youth. Certificate courses run from one day to two weeks. Accredited courses run from one week to 18 months, depending on the content and course outcomes. Courses can also be customized, according to the organisation’s needs.
