Your safety comes first. We have converted our face-to-face courses to virtual workshops . Visit our covid-19 page for more information.



Virtual delivery for all short courses

As a response to keeping you and our facilitators safe during the COVID-19 situation, we have converted our short course offerings to virtual delivery only, via Zoom, allowing you to continue learning and developing during these challenging times.


This program explains the relevance and importance of building and developing talent within an organisation. It covers the different approaches to training and development, the importance of training needs analysis, the role of competency based training, understanding learning styles and how to create a learning plan.

Career planning and career management also plays a part in an individuals' development. Understanding how to best utilise such activities is important for both managers and HR professionals.


This program would suit HR professionals with 1-5 years' experience seeking an introductory course on building and developing talent and managers seeking an introduction in this area
