We offer different services within the training and development space including corporate training, learnerships & skills programmes, project management and other consulting services:
SKILLS AND TALENT
Skills and talent development is vital for sustainable business growth and success. Organizations go through lengthy processes to recruit and on-board qualified and suitable employees, but often the emphasis stops there, with some business leaders disregarding the importance of developing their employees and nurturing their potential. Over the past few years, the world of work has been disrupted, initially and gradually, by the onset of different disruptors such as, the 4th Industrial Revolution, collapse of borders, shifting values, new media ecology among others and this disruption was accelerated by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The rapid integration of technological disruption and digital transformation has resulted in many businesses struggling to keep up with rapid innovation in the workplace. Evidence shows that investing in technology only doesn’t necessarily yield benefits for companies. According to research only 10% of companies have reported significant financial benefits from their investments in artificial intelligence. The question is what did these few companies do to separate themselves from the rest? These successful companies possessed learning agility. They actively changed their learning strategies to facilitate organizational learning in a dynamic and ever changing environment. Learning agile companies foster a culture driven by continuous learning and curiosity and this in most cases is the difference between thriving or barely surviving through any change.
This, combined with widening skills gaps, is why actively and continuously investing in employee training and development is essential for both the growth of the business and the workforce that propels it.
As corporate training specialists and business advisors we help you to close the gap between the skills and competencies in your workforce and pave the way for innovation, enhanced productivity and employee performance with our customised Corporate Training Programmes.
These programmes/courses cover a wide spectrum of areas (both soft and hard skills) and they are grouped into the following main categories – Business & Finance Management, Leadership & Management, Production & Maintenance, Occupational Health & Safety, ICT & other technical skills. These courses are designed with the future world of work in mind, visit our website or get in touch with us for our full suite of corporate programmes.
PRIVATE AND PUBLIC SECTORS
Learnerships and Skills Programmes
Egoli Training and Development also partners with private sector companies and public sector organisations in offering learnerships to both employed and unemployed learners. A learnership is a work-based learning programme that leads to an NQF registered qualification, they are directly related to an occupation or field of work, for example, business administration, gaming operations, contact centre operations, hairdressing or project management.
Learnerships are managed by the Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs) and they were introduced by the government to help skill learners and to prepare them for the workplace. Learnership programmes can help you to gain the necessary skills and workplace experience that will open up better employment or self-employment opportunities additionally they help to up-skill or reskill employees who are already in the workplace.
Learnerships are based on a legally binding agreement between an employer, a learner and a Training Provider – a role that we play as Egoli Training and Development, where we provide the theory training part of the learnership programme. This agreement is intended to spell out the tasks and duties of the employer, the learner and the Training Provider. It is designed to ensure the quality of the training and to protect the interests of each party.
We also provide Skills Programmes across different industries. The Skills Development Act defines a skills programme as:
- An unit standard based programme that is occupationally based;
- A National Qualification Framework (NQF) aligned programme presented by an accredited training provider; and
- A programme, when completed, constitutes credits towards a qualification registered on the NQF.
Many people regard a skills programme as a ‘mini qualification’ or a building block of a qualification because it is made up of a cluster of meaningful unit standards which are linked to a registered qualification. This enables the qualifying learner to be employable, or perform certain meaningful functions within the workplace.
Skills Programmes are the most dynamic and relevant features of the education and training system in South Africa. The role of a skills programme is to up-skill and multi-skill the South African workforce as well as new entrants into the relevant economic sectors.
