Graduate Development Seminar

INFORMATION

07 February 2018
Johannesburg

As the race for talent intensifies, organisations are starting to use graduate schemes to attract the very best, new talent. After all, graduates often come with high-performance potential and a lower salary bill. In return, work-integrated learning helps new graduates develop the skills required to become more employable within their industry.

However, in order to achieve both aims, there’s a need for tertiary institutions and industry to work together in applying work integrated learning. As much as graduate development programmes are beneficial, they have their disadvantages too. Graduate employers face challenges such as onboarding, development and retention.

Attend the Graduate Development Seminar on 7th February 2019 in Johannesburg and discover innovative strategies to enhance graduate development. The seminar brings together professionals from all industries, higher education institutions and leaders from large corporates to discuss issues affecting graduate development in the country.



Why you should attend:

  • Learn from leading practitioners who are implementing innovative methods to advance the absorption of graduates into the labour market.
  • Hear case studies from companies that are currently implementing graduate training programmes.
  • Learn about engagement strategies for Generation Z.
  • Get best practices on how to achieve high-quality graduate employment outcomes for students.

Who should attend:

  • Recruitment Managers
  • Talent Managers
  • Talent Acquisition Managers
  • Learning and Development Managers
  • Employee Engagement Managers
  • Employability Managers and Directors
  • Heads of Careers and Employability
  • Business Leaders
  • Senior Lecturers
  • Career Advisors

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.
