Learning & Skills Development Solutions
Ucademy, partnered with WNS Global Services SA on the design, development and implementation of a world-class Disability Graduate Development Programme in 2017.
The programme, which is a blend of post-graduate studies, soft skills training, coaching and experiential learning, aims at enriching the lives of disabled graduates from previously disadvantaged backgrounds with an opportunity to further their education and career aspirations while integrating into mainstream employment. The 12 month programme allows the graduates to apply learned theory into practice and to develop and grow their skills within the Ucademy, WNS Global Services Contact Centre and Financial Service arenas.
One of Ucademy’s focus areas is the management of learnerships through the implementation of a professional learnership framework, which is designed to ensure optimal benefit for both the employer and the learner. Our team of learnership experts will be able to walk your team through all the steps in the learnership journey.
During our discovery session, we will ensure that we help you understand each milestone within the learnership journey, aiming to highlight the most critical components to take into consideration when embarking on or managing a learnership within the workplace.
Our team of experts across South Africa will ensure that your learnership is managed as a structured learning process which combines theoretical knowledge and practical skills application in the workplace, leading to a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). Qualifications are Outcomes-Based and therefore the knowledge component is acquired through training, whilst the skills component is achieved back in the learners natural work environment. Ucademy, as a registered training provider will ensure that all the minimum requirements are met in terms of the requirements within a particular qualification.
We pride ourselves in delivering excellence and some of the benefits may include; expanding or growing the skills-base of your organisation, campaign or business. Creating employable opportunities for individuals who can add value and grow your business, which could be linked to your Broad-Based Black Economic (BBBEE) under the Skills Development Category. Our team builds lasting relationships with learners, whether they by employed or unemployed by providing them with opportunities to improve existing skills and develop additional ones. This means that both theoretical and practical workplace learning within the workplace takes centre stage while excelling within the workplace and achieving a national recognised qualification.
