Our Approach 


Understanding your need begins with a 360 degree assessment of your staff development requirements to determine specific objectives that our interventions can address.  The process can include task clarification, competency based needs analysis, and/or identification of the skills gaps ensuring the proposed solution addresses specific needs, such as technical competencies, leadership skills or functional skills.


We use skills development experts, who have experience in the specific field, and who possess extensive product design and management experience to conceptualise a bespoke solution.


Our experts use a consultative approach and work closely with the client in the selection, design and development of a curriculum in order to address their specific need.


We can deliver training at our lecturing facilities across Africa, onsite at your company premises or at an alternative off-site venue.  We use a range of industry professionals to facilitate our training programmes. This brings together a unique blend of technical, training and development expertise to ensure participants are provided with both a theoretical and practical balance to the learning process. We use learning material that adheres to stringent quality specifications, and we ensure ongoing assessment occurs to deliver consistent service to clients.


During implementation we continually engage with clients to ensure objectives and expectations are being met on an ongoing basis. We constantly monitor and evaluate our programmes and services to ensure customer satisfaction levels are met.
