At The Learning Link, we recognise the importance of maximising the transfer of training to the job. The Learning Link programmes are therefore designed and presented to optimise transfer.
Welcome to The Learning Link
Owners and Credentials
The Learning Link is owned and run by Malcolm and Michelle Haffner. Qualified teachers, Malcolm (BSc Honours, HDE) and Michelle (BA Honours, HDE) both understand the teaching and learning process well. Malcolm and Michelle have run various businesses and are familiar with business principles and practice. This combination of educational and business knowledge makes it possible for The Learning Link to develop and present programmes which are educationally sound and relevant to business.
Commitment to Change
The Learning Link is committed to ensuring that training will lead to behaviour change which will result in improved performance. To this end courses are kept relevant, appropriate and provide an excellent return on investment.
The Learning Link offers a variety of courses including Business, Soft Skills, Communication, and Management and Supervisory Skills. While most of the training is done by Malcolm or Michelle themselves, some courses are presented by associates who are subject matter experts. Courses can be run at a venue that suits the client anywhere in and beyond the borders of South Africa.
The most effective way of learning is by doing. The Learning Link courses are hands-on, high participation experiences, with as little lecturing as possible. Course participants are actively engaged in the learning process and learning takes place through personal experience. Participants are encouraged to question, comment and interact as much as possible, allowing them to learn from each other. As they are part of the discovery process, learners take ownership of new knowledge and are more likely to apply it in the workplace.
