Our Training

Philippi Trust is dedicated to providing counselling and counselling training to all peoples of South Africa. Also to train facilitators to provide psycho-social support to orphans and vulnerable children.

Our courses seek to integrate reputable secular methods and approaches with that of the Christian faith. Our vision is to equip people in the broader community, churches and other community based organisations to bring healing and restoration in our communities, therefore our country.

Philippi Trust has received full organisational accreditation status from the Health and Welfare SETA on 4 September 2009. Accreditation number: HW591PA0904191.

Organisational accreditation is the process of approving the standards of providers of education and training in order to be registered. Through the accredited process learners are able to get recognition/credits against specific unit standards. These credits are accumulated until a qualification is awarded, which will be recognised on both a national and international level. Philippi Trust is in the process of aligning the various courses with the relevant unit standards and registering each course with the HWSETA.
