We would like to take this opportunity to present the Otago Southland Employers’ Association (OSEA) training directory which lists our extensive range of high-impact expert-facilitated professional development training programmes, courses, workshops, and qualifications.

OSEA has proven experience in supporting you, your team and your business through continuing professional development and business coaching.

We offer a full calendar of in-person, face-to-face, classroom based public training programmes and workshops throughout the year. Programmes are designed to provide businesses, corporates, managers, leaders, individuals and teams with what they need to achieve their business and life goals, develop personal skills and improve performance, productivity and effectiveness.

The advantages of attending public programmes are that you learn from our experienced facilitators as well as other course participants from other organisations and businesses, and your team may complete different training programmes at different levels, depending on their own level of experience.

We believe in an inspiring, engaging and challenging, but safe, learning environment. In addition to our own specialist employment and health and safety teams, we partner with some of New Zealand’s most experienced facilitators who are carefully selected for their
• Expertise and knowledge in their field
• Innovative ideas and practical tips
• Facilitation ability to bring the learning alive.

In addition, we manage and deliver training programmes in partnership with Institute of Management New Zealand (IMNZ) and Export New Zealand in Otago and Southland; and we are the Regional Business Partner in Otago and Central Otago for Business Mentors New Zealand. This allows our team to move between brands to deliver the most applicable service to each individual member.

Members have access to all our training programmes, workshops and events at special member rates. The wider business community can also attend, at the non-member rate.

OSEA is registered to accept New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) Capability Development vouchers. Small-medium sized businesses may qualify for a NZTE Capability Development voucher to help pay for services such as training workshops, courses and coaching that build the management capabilities of their owners, operators and key managers.

All of our public training programmes can be delivered inhouse exclusively for your team. If the training programme you require is not in our training directory, please let us know as we have the capability and capacity to design, develop and deliver training programmes to meet your business needs.

We look forward to partnering with you, your team and your organisation.

Joanne O’Connor
