Lesson Desk already gearing up for HR Indaba Africa 2019

The end-to-end e-learning solutions company has big plans for next year's event.

Lesson Desk has re-signed for the HR Indaba Africa 2019, taking advantage of the early-bird discount, which exempts the e-learning company from paying the increased rate to showcase at next year’s event. Impressed by the inaugural HR Indaba, which delivered on the promise to provide access to more than 1,500 HR professionals, the company plans to go big in 2019.

"We enjoyed it a lot. It was a very cool event. We met a lot of interesting people and have been very successful in terms of getting contacts and leads," said Lesson Desk's Belinda Tanner after this year's Indaba, which was held at the Sandton Convention Centre on 3 and 4 October.

By making it possible for companies to have their own platform, create their own content and manage it completely in-house, Lesson Desk enables organisations to develop career pathways and execute succession planning more effectively. It's e-learning solutions enable other organisations to train their staff in both group and individual formats, inspiring growth through monitored career paths. With Lesson Desk, organisations can train up to 20 employees at the same time using one of their unique group training solutions where each learner is verified and marked individually, with no paperwork, printing, or writing involved in the process. Alternatively, companies can enable individuals to access and complete training material from any internet enabled mobile, tablet or PC to complete training in their own time and at their own pace.

The company also facilitates accredited training that is aligned with SAQA unit standard requirements, allowing staff to complete learnerships and skills development programs. Lesson Desk also has a content team, which allows organisations to create tailor-made training material that is aligned with SAQA qualification accreditation requirements and role-specific outcomes.

This allows companies to avoid having to fly facilitators around the country to different branches to do train staff. It also provides an alternative to the outsourcing of training consultants, who are often very expensive.
