Vision
 
Excellent Academy of Skills is a community developer Accredited Training Centre situated in Cape Town CBD and it is known now in City for its high quality and professional training services and community development programs based with flexible program.
 
We understand that up skilling our community today is building a better tomorrow. Therefore, we have a particular attention on both unprivileged and privileged community by setting up a platform of a training allowing everyone no matter the age, race and social background to be trained.
 
Believing that the better way of helping our community is to attend them in the local area and deliver the mobile training, our training system include as well moving from area to area delivering; group training, one on one training, on desk training.
 
We have understood that the only major barrier to the self-development and studies in today's society is the lack of time as everyone needs to be working in order to face the life challenges. This is why we have come up with the "personal tuition training system"; With the personal tuition training system, we have managed to train people who couldn't study due to their busy schedule including; security guards, mothers, and any worker during their off days, leave days, holidays or during any hours of the day where they can be free for 2 hours. This just means we have avail our self and made our learning style flexible to the need and availability of our community. We cannot count number of learners who have changed their jobs and lives after completing training with us in this angle...
 
Our Philosophy
 
We treat our learners as experienced adults with a great deal to contribute to their course.
 
Work is concentrated. Time is precious. All our courses are intensive.
 
The schedule is planned but flexible.
 
No single training method suits everyone. We are sensitive to different learning styles.
 
Our approach is always practical. People need to use skills given to them, not just studying it.
 
Small is beautiful. We restrict the numbers in our course centers so that we can ensure a really personal service at all times.
 
We offer a multi-national, multi-cultural environment.
 
Learning is collaboration - between the trainer and the learner, and between individual learners.
 
Learning never ends. We know that your course with us is just part of a bigger picture. We try to give to learners the tools to continue develop their lives after they leave us.

Our students
 
A great deal of trust has been placed into our student allowing them to feel more comfortable as they walk into the building till the classroom.
 
Our student's advisory service receives students on regular basis to make sure that they are fit for classes every morning.
 
We have allocated a budget to support students who are stack in the middle of the training with the lack of transport fees. This budget helps us to cover this need as we have understood that we can invest into our students this being part of a Change that we aim to make in our community from inside out.
Our refugee Students Project
 
This project consists of raising funds allowing us to sustain the need of the youth refugees. In this project we do; receive young refugees, train them in English language, Computer and specialized Courses, Prepare them for Jobs and guiding them into working industry, Translate their French school documents to English with our Sworn translators, assisting them in sending their documents to SAQA (South African qualification authority) for evaluation and assisting them with the enrollment at colleges and Universities for those who have means to do the further studies.
 
This project has been a true life changing since most of young refugees has recovered from depression to better life in one hand but very challenging in other hand as a serious financial means is needed to cover the cost from travelling, training manuals, SAQA evaluation as well as tools needed for those who are doing the technical and practical courses. This year alone we have managed to cover and enrolled up to 40 young refugees and still have pending 70 applications in need of funds.
