According to Docebo’s eLearning Market Trends and Forecast Report, the size of the eLearning market was estimated to be over USD 165 Billion in 2015 and is likely to grow by 5% between 2016 and 2023, exceeding USD 240 Billion. Africa's eLearning market has doubled from 2011 to 2016, reaching $513 million, says Ambient Insights, adding that SA is Africa's largest eLearning market, followed by Angola, Nigeria and Tunisia. In Africa alone the eLearning industry has had an annual growth rate of 15.2% showing that implementation of eLearning programmes in various institutions is increasing at an unprecedented rate.

We know the world of learning and performance is constantly evolving. Corporate leaders are looking to technology to help keep pace and move towards learning that is online, web-based and mobile as opposed to the traditional face-to-face learning. eLearning today is about choosing the right solution for your organisation to advance and deliver business goals, but in ways learners want. Organisations will need to change mindsets and embrace learning as a journey rather than a singular action. The focus on learning will be on the tools and practices that are able to offer personalisation as well as engage and meet the learner’s needs. At the same time globally, many businesses’ training budgets have been cut, and just cannot afford for staff to dedicate weeks of time to training. Technological advancements have made it possible for workplace training to be even more accessible than ever before! Learning anywhere, anytime! The benefits of eLearning are clear, offering faster learning delivery, lower costs, customised learning and often more effective way of delivering training and educational content to employees scattered across the country.

Attend and learn how to deliver learning that is more effective and makes impact on your business. Bottom line – training needs to keep up with the fast-paced environment and work demands to meet the needs of the modern learner. Highlighting key trends and developments in the industry this event will keep you up to date as well as provide you with tools to be successful in your learning role now and in the future.

SETA grants and accreditation requirements

Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
