Most global companies are working hard now to ensure that they inclusion induction and training programs are in place and function adequately. Some companies hire full time in-house experts for this area and others search outside for suitable vendors to deliver the program. Traditional undergraduate and master’s degrees often touch upon this area but courses that specialise in it are rare. The demand for skills in this area far exceeds the supply so it creates a lot of career opportunities.

This will be an online learning course. If you are unable to attend live classes, the classes will be available online to watch at a later stage. It is a 10-week course, live classes will be on Tuesday evenings per week from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

Assessment will be by a mixture of a written assignments and continuous assessment.
