Training and Development
Rising Eagles offers a blended approach to training and development that combines classroom training, group activities, assignments and e-learning. The programme is enhanced with specific events where we host specialist speakers to deliver key topics that affect our business and your role.
Whichever one of our business areas you join, you’ll be guided, moulded and trained for 12 months– building up the skills and experience you’ll need to become a leader for our future. Every step of the way, our training and support will keep your development on track.
You won’t be on this journey alone. From the day you arrive, you’ll have a buddy on hand – a previous graduate – to offer guidance, advice and support – who’ll always be there to share their experience and expertise with you.
We know the more clued up you are, the better you’ll perform. Which is why, as your career with us develops, we’ll continue to support your personal and professional development. There’s a vast array of training opportunities available from talks, projects and competitions to practical skills sessions. Not to mention the 300+ online learning modules available through our Learning for Africa portal.
We have a wide variety of career opportunities within our organisation including:
- A postgraduate qualification (minimum NQF Level 8) in any of the disciplines that we recruit from, obtained before January 2018.
- There is an exception for Tanzania whereby a three year degree will be accepted.
- Less than 24 months’ permanent work experience (this excludes temporary work during full-time studies).
