LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE | BOTSWANA

Meeting Place for Learning Leaders

INFORMATION

Pre-Conference Workshop 10 September2018
One-day Conference 11 September 2018
AVANI | Gaborone Botswana

Research conducted by the Human Capital Institute (HCI, 2017) reveals that there is plenty of room for L & D to grow and elevate its role as a strategic partner to business unit leaders, executive teams, and CEOs. The 2017 LinkedIn Workplace Learning Report indicated that only 60% of those surveyed have ‘seats at the boardroom table’. The report also revealed that 69% of L & D executives indicate that talent development is their number one priority but demonstrating value is proving to be challenging when it comes to showing the impact on the business. Today’s modern learners must always be learning.

In fact, they demand it. Learning is taking place through a variety of sources and devices. With the flood of technology, people today are embracing digital tools to access content that helps them learn on the job and on the go. But the research found that organisations are still heavily investing in in-person classroom-style training.

As digital transforms the business landscape, successful organisations will be those who can move faster, adapt and grow quicker, and learn more rapidly. The World Economic Forum (WEF) warns that by 2020, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will have introduced robotics and autonomous transport, artificial intelligence, advanced materials and biotechnology into our daily lives. Today’s workforce will therefore need to upgrade its skills if it is to meet the needs of companies and consumers in the future.

Learning leaders are under pressure to reskill (and up skill) people to meet the challenges of today. New workplace learning approaches are needed to underpin all the ways people learn in the modern workplace. This does not mean however, updating traditional practices, but rather adopting news ways to enable employee-led learning. For your L &D function this is not just about doing this differently, but rather looking at doing different things. Often wearing many different hats, learning leaders need to look at ways to improve their value as strategic innovators, talent decision makers and trusted advisors. Leaders need to remain open minded, observe behaviour closely, be flexible and willing to experiment.



Why you should Attend?

  • Hear latest developments, trends, innovative learning practices, company case studies and see where technology will take learning in the future.
  • Discover ways to build skills and capability for tomorrow when faced with disruptive circumstances.
  • Actionable ideas that can help your organisation learn faster than your competitors – turn learning into a sustainable competitive advantage.
  • Expand and build you network! Meet L & D leaders who face the same challenges as you.
  • Upgrade your own professional knowledge and skills

Who should attend?

This programme is developed for senior level professionals involved in Learning and Development at a strategic and decision-making level, such as:
  • Head of Training and Development
  • Head of Learning and Development
  • Chief Learning Officer/Chief Learning and Development Officer
  • Head of Talent Management
  • Human Resource Development/People Development
  • Training Specialist/Learning Specialist
  • OD Specialist/Change and Transformation Specialist
  • Career Guidance & Counselling Practitioners
  • HR Director
  • Academic/Researcher

This event will help you as a learning leader build an organisation that is able to meet the challenges of rapid change by ensuring that learning is an integral part of the business strategy. It will look at a more modern approach that evolves L&D into a business within a business.

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.
