Professional Development Training
What your business needs if it is to be successful is knowledgeable, skilled and productive employees, something that can only be achieved through clear, structured skills development that will ensure such employees are turned into genuine assets to your business.
We can help you to optimise your return on investment in training, by ensuring that your employees receive meaningful and relevant knowledge and skills transfer in an efficient and effective way. We will assist you by designing training offerings that will develop learning paths for your employees, which in turn will serve as a basis for the creation of clear, structured career paths.
“knowledgeable, skilled and productive employees”
From the initial assessment through to the delivery of specific training courses, we are aware that it is the combination of our partnerships with the very best technology vendors in the world, coupled with a clear understanding of individual customer requirements, that will significantly boost both your employees’ skills and productivity.
Business Skills Courses
Excel Training – We understand that Microsoft Excel is an essential business skill in the modern business environment, so it is vital that your people understand how to use it properly and thus derive value from it.
From learning to create, edit, format and print a spreadsheet to more advanced skills like learning the tools required to work with large spreadsheets, cleaning up data, sorting and filtering and utilising, and understanding how to report on large spreadsheets, we can deliver it all.
Microsoft Office Training – Our customised Microsoft end-user training is designed to help your workforce to unlock true productivity by focusing on when and how to use key functionalities, in addition to providing basic, introductory guidance.
We make the training easy, thanks to practical, easy-to-follow demonstrations based on specific real-life business scenarios. This is coupled with pre- and post-assessments to determine the skills gap, as well as in-class skills transfer assessments, and a blended delivery of the content via both online platforms and facilitator-led interventions.
We use multiple forms for certification, from vendor-specific certifications to unit standard-based assessments, to ensure that the requirements of our customers are addressed effectively and efficiently.
Our Microsoft Office Training encompasses:
- Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Project, Access, Visio, Publisher, SharePoint and OneNote
- Basic Computer Skills
- Visual Basic for Applications
Soft Skills Training – While technical skills are important, personal and interpersonal skills, as well as business and office dynamics, are equally critical. After all, learning how to play well with others, and how to meet the standards demanded by your chosen profession may not be as exciting as learning how to handle technology, but it is just as important if you are to foster success in your day-to-day business environment.
We can assist with the delivery of a wide range of soft skills, from those business skills required by employees to perform professionally within an organisation to the more specialised ones related to the fields of Business Process Management, Project Management, Business Finance and the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL).
Other areas of focus include interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, supervisory and leadership skills, customer care competencies and basic business fundamentals, aimed particularly at enabling those employees who have had limited business exposure to function in an office environment.
