After training support

Learning does not stop at the end of your course, and neither does our support. We take pride in helping our trainees transfer their knowledge to their new workplace, so we provide on-the-job practical, problem-solving support. Our comprehensive post-training support will help you reinforce your learning and make the best start possible.

Our ongoing support has three proven elements:

  1. Be mentored by a SmartLearning alumnus

Build a long-term relationship with a mentor who’s travelled your path before you and knows what to expect. You can expect guidance and support during your early days of career growth. This, amongst others, includes a rich knowledge transfer, shared insight, and good solid advice from a friendly, knowledgeable peer.

  1. Become a member of a professional community

When you complete your course with SmartLearning, you will be enrolled into an online community of your peers and industry experts where you can share knowledge, ask questions and discuss issues anytime, anywhere. Maybe you need some advice on how to put together a security policy; perhaps you’re looking for ideas on standardising security configurations; maybe you have a BYOD issue. You will have a community of practice at your back, offering advice and answers just when you need it.

  1. Lifetime access to online resources

You will have lifetime access to the SmartLearning suite of online learning tools: a vast collection of resources that you can dip into when you need it, or explore in-depth anytime, for your work or job application prep. There’s a wide variety of content in formats you prefer: training videos, templates, tutorials, job aids, reference material, and infographics.

Our SmartLearning Alumni Mentoring Programme

We are very proud of our alumni. They have completed our courses, and they’re making headway in lucrative, enjoyable careers. And they’re also giving back. Many of our alumni choose to become alumni mentors in our SmartLearning Alumni Mentoring Programme, an initiative driven by the passion and commitment help others, and to continue to develop professionally.
The Mentoring Programme is designed to develop the skills and careers of both our alumni and our trainees. Our alumni mentors forge strong, trusting learning partnerships with our trainees, improving their own mentoring skills such as active listening, goal identification, and developing others. They have found that mentoring is excellent for personal development – and their CV.
