Special Projects Department | eta College
eta Special Projects is a division of eta College that deals with the following business opportunities:


Assisting sport and fitness businesses and organisations to secure and deliver successful learnership projects for the continued training of their staff and local community. Funding is secured from the SETA for sport and Fitness; CATHSSETA. These learnerships are offered annually. Learnerships are run over a period of one year and are usually full qualifications.

Skills programmes
Skills programmes are designed and delivered based on unit standards from fully accredited qualifications. Specific short courses or skills programmes are custom designed for sport and fitness federations and companies around South Africa. These skills programmes or short courses are particularly effective where students need up skilling but do not have the time to complete full qualifications (which usually take one year to complete). The duration of these skills programmes can vary between several days and several months and offer a flexible alternative to a full qualification.

Active Communities Network South Africa (NPO Registration No.:124-308)
Active Communities Network South Africa (ACN SA) was established in 2011 as a locally registered partner organisation to Active Communities Network (ACN UK). The aim of the NPO is to capacity build local organisations, staff and young people with the vision to strengthen resilience, empower youth and develop stable and cohesive communities across South Africa. On a practical level, this would take the form of accredited and non-accredited educational programmes for people from disadvantaged communities. It would also involve the identification of employment pathways for those who have benefited from the training. In order for the organisation to grow, it is key to monitor those pathways and publish case studies of success stories to promote the work of ACN SA.

ACN SA has an ongoing partnership with eta College. eta College supports ACN SA with accredited skills programmes and have been enabling people to launch their careers in fitness, sport coaching and the business of sport since 1984.
