Learning and training


Phuhlisani Solutions specialises in the design and facilitation of customised learning and training programmes.

Field based learning

Field based learning processes combine participatory research and action learning on selected project sites. Session preparation is undertaken by a multidisciplinary team who research the project site in advance. This enables the design of a practical learning programme which draws on different disciplines to develop a shared analysis of the social, institutional, ecological and economic dimensions of the selected project. Field based learning breaks down institutional silos and the barriers between disciplines.

Skilled facilitators ensure the involvement of project participants, development practitioners, officials from government and representatives of civil society organisations in a co-learning process to create transdisciplinary knowledge.

Training course design and delivery

We are acknowledged experts in the design and development of learning materials and the use of participatory methods for training and learning. Members of our team have designed and delivered courses which range from a single day through to intensive six-week sessions that combine face-to-face coursework, field and syndicate assignments. These courses cover many different aspects of land reform, participatory forest management, sustainable livelihoods and integrated natural resource management.

Our associates include SAQA accredited trainers and assessors.
