About K3 Strategies

K3 Strategies was founded in 2009 by two South African professionals who have spent a significant number of years in the Learning and Development/HRD/Skills Development environment, in particular the SETAs. Having being with the SETAs since their inception, they identified gaps in specific areas of the skills development environment that if adequately filled will benefit both the SETA systems and improve the companies’ return on training investment.

K3 Strategies is a Closed Corporation (CC) wholly owned by two black South African consultants with the majority shareholding held by a black woman. Since the inception of K3 Strategies, the founding members has dedicated time and resources towards developing strategies and tools to manage HRD interventions with SETAs, Companies, FET Colleges, Universities, Universities of Technology and Private Providers. This has enabled K3 Strategies to develop other products including Turnkey Solutions in Project Management and Monitoring and Evaluation.
