With the emergence of rapid technology enhancements, expanding globalisation and increased competition, organisational learning and development has evolved to incorporate a matching strategic transformation.


It is against this backdrop that the Curriculum has been developed. The aim of the Bill Venter Academy is not merely to offer a list of different learning programmes which employees can attend. It also co-operates actively at a strategic level with stakeholders to offer learning interventions that will add value to the attainment of business goals.


The Academy curriculum has been developed to meet business demands, and was created in close collaboration with the Altron Group business leaders, relevant unit standards and universities.


The Curriculum focuses on the following four core strategic areas:


Management and Leadership Development
The Management and Leadership Development Programmes are designed for a spectrum of participants at various levels of seniority, namely Junior, Middle, Senior and Top Management. These programmes are delivered by formal, accredited and reputable external educational institutions such as the University of Stellenbosch Business School, The Da Vinci Institute for Technology Management and WITS University.
