Group Programme

Since 2006 Ububele has run transformative Working with Groups (WWG)courses for people whose work entails being a group member or leader. The courses are experiential, theoretical and practical. They are unique in that individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, occupations and experiences engage with one another during the 6 intense 2.5 day blocks. Participants emerge with greater understanding, sensitivity, tolerance and insight into our complex national human landscape.
