An exciting new partnership between mLab and the Media, Information and Communication Technologies Sector Education and Training Authority (MICT SETA) is poised to introduce a number of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) related interventions that will equip South Africans to respond to the demands and opportunities of a technology immersed future. 


Change is daunting, but ultimately necessary and inevitable, especially in business. The businesses on the forefront of change are the ones that survive and prosper.And the employees who possess the skill of being highly adaptable to change, are the ones who get and stay employed as well as grow in their careers.


We’re always looking for ways to improve ourselves. Sometimes it’s the latest trend in health or fitness, and other times it’s a new way of organising our homes.


Evolving technology and the impacts of Covid-19 have resulted in workplaces that are changing faster than ever. To keep pace with the rapid advances in the workplace and avoid skills shortages, almost half of employees will need to be reskilled with critical skills by 2025.


The employment spectrum changed dramatically overnight and thus we learned to become adaptable and flexible. Having a degree is not enough anymore.

Ask the average person what a global capability centre (GCC) looks like, and they’ll probably describe an old-fashioned call centre, with rows of cubicles filled with people frantically making and receiving calls.


Academy Training Group offers a variety programmes in an environment that supports and encourage your learning.


Its vision is to be a leader in providing students with appropriate and quality career-related education and training. It strives to be the college of choice for further education and training.
They believe in developing our students to be responsible citizens who are able to contribute positively to South Africa's economic growth through their chosen career path.


The age of rapid upskilling, reskilling and internal mobility is here. Never before have organisations across the globe seen such rapid acceleration of automation and economic uncertainty, as in the time post covid. 


Improving the knowledge and skills of South Africa’s teachers is an important part of strengthening our education system. Research has shown that our teachers’ skill levels are poor, and teachers are required by law to participate in professional development practices, such as attending workshops and courses that keep them up to date with current practice.


The sudden pandemic pushed business operations, and the ability to continuously develop their human capital’s skills, into the 4th Industrial Revolution much earlier than was anticipated.
