Open Learning Group returns as HR Indaba Africa partner

OLG is an accredited private higher education institution that focusses on the logistics and supply chain industries.

Open Learning Group (OLG) has re-signed as a partner for the HR Indaba, which will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre on 16 & 17 October 2019. OLG is a private higher education institution that offers accredited qualifications, skills programmes, and learnerships, creating opportunities for employee progression within an organisation, which is something that is not easily achievable in the short-to-medium term.

Specialising in the logistics and supply chain industries, OLG caters to both individual students who approach them directly, as well as companies that want their employees to learn practical skills that can be applied the work environment. Their current student base is made up of working adults and school leavers who prefer distance learning as a method of upskilling themselves

"Our qualifications cater for all levels of students and employees as we offer a wide range of programmes that span from learnerships and skills programmes at NQF Level 2 and progress to NQF Level 7 with a BBA degree. This progression encourages employees to increase their knowledge base and acquire new and meaningful skills throughout their education journey with OLG,” says OLG HR executive Prajna Moodley.  

"Being a distance learning institution, students can work and study whenever it is convenient for them. We offer dedicated student support through the student journey, from application to graduation, assisting students with additional guidance if needed."

Having participated in the inaugural event, OLG is convinced that the HR Indaba presents the best opportunity for networking with HR professionals across different industries, and to keep up with the latest trends in the field. This is key for an organisation like OLG, which needs to understand where the skills gaps in order to design training and development offerings that are aligned with what the market needs.

As a partner, OLG will have an exhibition stand at the HR Indaba, which will be the largest of its kind in South Africa. It will give HR professionals an opportunity to learn everything they need to know about the latest HR technology, HR strategy, company culture, labour laws, recruitment, employee engagement and HR leadership. It will also bring together thousands of colleagues, suppliers, platforms, universities, specialists, recruitment agencies, CHROs and thought leaders.
