Mission and Purpose
OSEA will offer a comprehensive business training curriculum to develop talent, skills and improve business performance, productivity and effectiveness; providing superior quality, value and exceptional service. 

      Learning and development provides the support employers' need to maximise their
      greatest asset - their people.

Otago Southland Employers’ Association has proven experience in supporting you, your team and your business through continuing professional development and business coaching.

We offer a full calendar of public training programmes and workshops throughout the year. Programmes have been 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 participants learn from our experienced facilitators as well as other course participants from other organisations and businesses, and participants may complete different programmes at different levels, depending on their own levels 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
» Innovative ideas and practical tips
» Ability to bring the learning alive.

In addition, we manage and deliver training programmes on behalf of 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 get access to all our training programmes and workshops at special member rates. The wider business community can also attend, at the non-member rate.
