The aim of this study is to identify a teaching strategy which can enable Further Education and Training learners to enquire creative problem solving skills. A programme was formulated to this effect. Four sessions were conducted to the subject of study using facilitation as teaching method. Facilitation engages learners actively in learning activities when compared to traditional and old teaching methods. Participants were engaged in different activities which enable the participants to use creative problem solving skills. At the beginning of the programme, the participants were not as active as towards the end. Based on the creativity that the participants displayed towards the end of the programme, the researcher concludes that the participants were able to acquire creative problem solving skills.
