Consulting & Support Services

In addition to delivering training courses and workshops, SESTO provides a wide range of consulting and support services to organisations. Our support services are designed to provide flexible solutions to clients who are seeking to outsource non-core activities, or project-based initiatives.

Examples of the range of specialised consulting and support service activities we undertake include:

Consulting and Advisory Services. We provide subject area expertise to individuals and organisations in the areas of Project Management, Risk Management, Asset Management, Leadership and Governance, and Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Our specialist educational project management services to the North-West Provincial Government has not only delivered the planned project deliverables, but we have done so within schedule and under budget, and over a period of 5 years have consistently been acknowledged as a top performing educational project manager among the 9 provinces by the National Skills Fund (NSF).

Customised course design services to meet specific business needs. Our experience extends to meeting the design and development needs of large multinational Oil & Gas companies, public sector entities such as the Department of Higher Education, and not-for-profit organisations. Course design and delivery strategy often includes the integration of face-to-face workshop delivery and online learning to access the benefits of blended delivery options.

Venture Start-up Incubation consultancy, coaching and mentoring support. We have experience in business start-up incubator establishment and support services. Our incubation support services include developing the infrastructure, screening, evaluation and selection of prospective candidates, developing the entrepreneurial ecosystem, and provide coaching and structured mentoring support services to tenants/residents in order to develop and commercialise their business opportunities. Incubator experience includes developing 400 nascent entrepreneurs in South Africa in a project funded by the Services Seta.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Services. Recognition of prior learning is a flexible tool and cost-effective option for both individuals and organisations to recognise prior learning and current competency of staff. As such, RPL avoids replication of learning previously undertaken and accelerates learning outcomes towards a recognised award or qualification.

Conceptual design and development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Small Private Online Courses (SPOCs). We have experience in designing and developing MOOCs across a range of subject areas. This includes concept development, high level design, developing appropriate teaching and learning strategies, storyboarding and script development, learning activities and animation.
