Our beloved teacher and leader of all time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon one can use to change the world. It is the engine of personal development. Through it, a daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, a son of a miner can become the head of a mine, a child of a farmer can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make of what we have, and not what we are given, that separates one person from another”.

It is with this philosophy that we take pride in our Training Academy. As the leader in professional training, we draw on our 70 years of global experience to provide effective learning and development opportunities. We make a difference to individuals, teams and businesses, nurturing talent and enabling continuous organisational progression.
