The Chief Learning Officer (CLO) challenge of reskilling, upskilling and outskilling at scale: Looking beyond what to do but rather HOW do you do it!

Nedbank (LinkedIn Talent Award 2018 Winner for Best Culture of Learning)

13:00–14:00 Networking lunch


Panel discussion:

  • Educating and developing the next generation of leaders and executives: Solving the leadership development dilemma. It’s time to rethink our approach to leadership development by asking the following two questions: What skills are most important for the leaders of the future? And what will it take to develop them?
  • Ongoing development of the CLO and L&D staff. The most senior executives (including yourself) are often left behind with their own development.  How do you continue to develop yourself (and your L&D team) to ensure you continue to remain relevant and add value to the business? What capability and skills are required 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.
