Programmes for existing Pathcare employees
In addition to our full-length programmes, various short courses in the areas of technical expertise, service quality, and business capacity are continuously on offer for existing PathCare staff nationally.
Since opening the Academy doors in 2006, over 40 000 participants have attended Academy short courses.
Through a combination of internal programmes and programmes outsourced to independent training providers nationally, the Academy helps to ensure that PathCare’s service delivery is enhanced through the continuous development of all of our staff nationally. Courses offered in the Academy Prospectus include programmes in business ethics, occupational health and safety, customer care, diversity awareness, labour relations, conflict and stress management, financial skills, and various computer skills, among others.
Particular emphasis is being placed on the skills development of historically disadvantaged individuals in the PathCare workplace. A full prospectus of Academy short courses for existing staff and a calendar of events is published annually. In 2020, short courses delivery was suspended due to the Covid Pandemic and e-course delivery was accelerated.
