WHAT IS PYDA?

PYDA is a year-long work readiness programme for students looking to make a positive change in their lives.

 

Our two holistic training programmes focus on locally prominent industries: Wine and Tourism and the Fruit Sector. Earning an industry-endorsed qualification, our students learn relevant technical and personal development skills needed for employment in these industries.

IMPACT

Our programmes are aimed at industries which contribute significantly to the South African economy and have the largest scope of meaningful career opportunities for our graduates.

PYDA has been making a positive impact in the lives of our students since 2013.

Students at PYDA learn valuable skills related to either the Wine and Tourism industry or the Fruit Sector.

Our funders, patrons, and workplace partners give us the support we need to be effective.
