 UKZN Extended Learning (UEL)

‘Your future is in your hands’



The CEO of UEL, Simon Tankard, is upbeat about opportunities to meet the practical development needs of individuals and organisations across sectors and markets: “Our priority is to provide relevant education that has direct impact in addressing multiple needs - particularly in the context of Africa as a dynamic, developing region of significant importance to the globe’s long term economic growth and sustainability.

We aim to achieve this by providing a world class portfolio of short courses and career development initiatives that are relevant and that meet the practical needs of individuals and organisations, underpinned by the substantial academic research, teaching and learning resources and capability of the University of KwaZulu-Natal.”

Delegates attending courses with UEL may be members of the public who wish to study a subject for personal development or out of general interest, professional practitioners and members of business organisations who wish to increase their knowledge and competency, or employees of organisations in the public sector or the community tasked to work on specific projects.

UEL’s courses can last from one day to several weeks and UEL also travels to different geographic locations to meet the learning and development needs of partner clients.

Caroline Harben, Chairperson: UKZN Alumnus Association in Europe, and Simon Tankard, CEO: UKZN Extended Learning, met in Oxford, England in August 2012 to discuss possibilities in education

Open courses cover a wide range of subjects and skills areas, including general management, finance, leadership and governance, and nutrition science, and are offered to prospective delegates from business, the public sector and the community.

In addition, UEL works closely with corporate clients to understand their specific needs and people development requirements and to develop customised courses that provide experiential, active learning opportunities intended for delegates to have a direct immediate impact on their return to their organisations.

UEL extends a warm invitation to alumni of UKZN to contact us to discuss your specific requirements and suggestions across learning and development areas of importance to you and your organisations.
