SATI seeks to help ensure industry sustainability through training, but is not a training institution as such. In 2008, SATI was mandated by the board to develop a Table Grape Academy that would primarily focus on supportive training material development.
Today the Table Grape Academy comprises of:
• The Viticulture (Table Grape Science) lecturing post at Stellenbosch University.
• SATI/ARC/ Elsenburg Modular Course in Table Grape production.
• Audio Visual Materials and other training materials used by the industry for the industry.
• Various bursaries.
• Various training and mentorship programmes for emerging producers and middle managers.
