7 Years Of Service To Emakhazeni

The organisation’s 7 years of service to Emakhazeni has included extensive and widely celebrated Artistic Events/Experiences & Community Activations; and Accredited & Non-Accredited tertiary level Arts Education Programmes from its Ebhudlweni Art Centre base. FATC provides bridging, accredited FETC, and non-accredited tertiary level training to build capacity, develop skill and facilitate access to further study opportunities, where previously unavailable for youth.

"FATC offers Fully Certified and Accredited NQF Level 4 FETC qualifications in the Performing Arts. The training is offered in a two-year accredited structure that is intended to provide a higher education pathway for rural youths, due to FATC observing and having an awareness of the drastically low levels of Grade 12 completion in local communities, that precludes many talented young people from benefitting from FATC’s tertiary level programmes. This not only pushes up against FATC’s objective for inclusivity, but also for facilitating access to tertiary level study. The • 48808: Performoning Arts • 48818: Arts Administration unit standards and skills programmes derived from these full qaulifications are integrated into FATC Skills, Training and Capacity Buiding programme for youth. "

"The Community Builders Applied Arts Training Programme (CBAATP) CBAATP (previously Community Builders Dance Training Prrogramme) develops dance artists/educators who are able to work across diverse contexts. The comprehensive training received in applied arts methodologies, facilitation training, dance performance, dance-making, dance in societal-context and arts administration prepares candidates for a career in the professional dance industry, while the community-focused Facilitator training and on-the-job training received within FATC’s rural Local Arts Education Programmes prepares them with specialized skills in developing and implementing dance programmes within rural communities. The programme therefore improves access to dance training within rural areas more broadly through the upskilling of young dance professionals interested in community-development through dance practice. At the core of the programme is the delivery of Applied Arts Facilitation training as well as a 59 credit NQF level 4 CATHSSETA Accredited Skills programme in the performing arts"

YALP is dedicated to developing young artists in leadership positions with a focus on capacitating youth in under-resourced rural and peri-urban areas. The programme focuses on Leadership in the Creative and Cultural industries and provides tertiary-level training in the area of Arts Entrepreneurship, the business of the arts, operational compliance and governance in arts organisations.
