Take charge of your professional development

Are you looking to develop your skills and obtain an Occupationally-Directed Education, Training and Development (OD-ETD) qualification?

Is your dream to be an ETD Practitioner and make a difference in the ETD sector?

If you have answered yes to the above two questions, Omni HR Consulting is the Training Provider for you.

We spoke to Ghawa Latib, ETD Programme Manager at Omni HR Consulting, for some tips on staying motivated and achieving success whilst undergoing Omni’s qualifications.

Here’s what she had to say…

Why am I pursuing this qualification?

"Learners need to be motivated in their own quest for learning in order to succeed in their learning programme. When motivation is driven internally, and the learner enjoys what they are learning and doing, they are more likely to succeed in their learning and assessment," says Latib.

Am I willing to make the sacrifice?

"Learning and gathering evidence towards your assessment takes time." This calls for an adjustment in your work/life balance.

"It is important to realise that you will need to make the personal sacrifice after hours to focus on your learning."

Am I ready to be stretched?

The adage “if it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you” by Fred Vito holds true for anyone who wants to grow and develop.

According to Latib the student must be willing to be stretched and moved beyond their comfort zone.

"If learners are able to see challenges as opportunities and match that with effort, they are more likely to succeed and enjoy their learning journey. "

Do I have support?

Establishing good relationships and support in your workplace will be very beneficial to your growth and development, advises Latib.

A coach can provide valuable guidance and support which helps learners develop the knowledge and practical skills to succeed.

Am I open to engaging with others?

Engaging with other learners during the learning intervention allows every participant to share valuable knowledge and experience with each other.

Learners who undertake to work in groups and support each other are more likely to do well in their learning and assessment experience.
