Learning Consulting

My goal is to ensure that people acquire the skills to fulfill their job function in the most effective, efficient and satisfying way in support of personal, business and national goals.

I have more than 20 years of experience in all aspects of learning and offer the following services:

  • Learning strategy consulting
  • Learning needs analysis (including job analysis)
  • Curriculum and course instructional design (including NQF alignment)
  • Learning delivery and other facilitation
  • Learning material design
  • Online learning development (including system simulations and assessments as well as knowledge-based material)
  • Printed learning and support material development (including system-reference and business process documentation)
  • Assessment design and development



If you need to develop skills in this area, I can help you do that also. See Presentation Skills and Facilitation Skills for more information. Contact me on +27 (0)72 614 6010 or email me at msblane@yahoo.com.


If you are looking for well-designed training materials (full course materials, activities, presentations) that you can customise for your own needs and use in-house, see MyTrainingResources. Combine the customised materials with either of the two courses listed above or use them on their own!

Feedback:

  • "Martha has superb consultative skills, remarkable technical skills, and a commitment to quality that is second to none.
  • "Martha was one of the most sought-after consultants I worked with at Usertech/Canterbury. Her ability to learn any software system is uncanny; more importantly, she has the critical ability to help others learn it as well. Her crisp needs analysis assures learners get the right information initially, and she can craft in-depth support materials to assure learners can continue to expand their knowledge thereafter. Her facilitation skills are excellent, both one-on-one and in a classroom setting. I found her to be a superb learning professional."
