Professional Development 1

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune. These workshops deal with skills specific to certain jobs and positions or skills people need at different points in their working life. Self - improvement involves  activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance the quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.

Training of Trainers

It is one thing to have the qualifications and expertise of a subject and quite another to be able to transfer your knowledge to an audience effectively! Many trainers lose the interest and respect of their audience despite their superior knowledge of the subject because they lack the skills to connect with their participants.

This advanced level course equips you to examine the training needs of your team, design appropriate training and develop the skills necessary to change group behaviour and enhance performance.
