SuccessFactors Learning provides UCT staff with a centralised booking and administration system for courses offered by UCT training providers. The online platform provides a one-stop shop to find, book and manage development activities. Ad hoc staff, paid-on-claim staff or those paid by a temp agency will unfortunately not have access to the service due to the temporary nature of their role.

Staff members can access the platform on any internet-connected device (including smart phones and tablets) using their existing UCT login details. Time-consuming manual booking processes are replaced by automated processes with easy workflow for manager approval. Records of completed courses are consolidated and centrally stored, adding to a staff member’s training history.
