Summary

The AngloGold Ashanti Australia Managerial Development Program, commenced in June 2019, with the intent to develop the organisation’s leaders.  The program was carried out over 18 months and currently has 3 cohorts, Cohort 1 Graduated in December 2020.

This program was aligned to the  BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management  and was closely aligned to the leader’s needs, to assist them in improving their leadership capability.  The program also embodied AngloGold Ashanti’s Values and Behaviours.

Program Design and Customisation

Future Institute created a working group with AngloGold Ashanti which confirmed the specific training needs for this level of leadership.  The working group met regularly to customise all of the training material and assessments, using organisational documents, policies, processes and scenarios to create the fully customised BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management  .  The working group also identified real projects throughout the program for participants to work on to ensure practical application of new skills, knowledge and capabilities that were highly relevant to the leaders’ roles.

Program Delivery

The Australian Managerial Development Program comprised of 12 Units of Competency.

Prior to each workshop, the participants were required to complete eLearning modules for each Unit of Competency which provide the underpinning knowledge required prior to attending each face-to-face workshop.

The face-to-face workshops focused on activity-based learning. The workshops were highly interactive with small / large group activities allowing for discussions and debriefing, all relevant to the challenges the leaders face every day.

Progress

Congratulations to Cohort 1 for successfully completing the Australian Managerial Development Program.  Cohort 2 and 3 are progressing well with completion due in 2021.
