Learning Skills & Capabilities

Learning Skills & Capabilities allows your people to learn modern ways of working, and ensures new skills and capabilities are focused on your goals.


How do I give employees the right skills and capabilities we need to meet our organizational goals?

As markets change, skills gaps widen, and employees come with very clear expectations about development, you need the ability to adapt. Organizations that are too slow to change often lose out to more agile rivals. And the issues stem from deep-rooted practices or a lack of skills in modern ways of working. To meet customer and employee demands, organizations must develop the skills and capabilities that will set them apart.

Organizations often struggle to develop the right skills and capabilities while expecting people to deliver their work each day. While hiring is time-consuming and still doesn’t guarantee you’ll pick the right people with the right skills who fit seamlessly into the organization. Emergn’s mission is to improve the way people and companies work. Forever. To do this, we provide work-based education that creates the right skills and capabilities to transform your organization, making a difference immediately to the people and the work.

Problems we solve

  • Having the ‘right’ skills – Existing learning programs are not delivering the practical skills needed to deliver against strategic business outcomes.
  • Setting a pathway for employees – The rapid shift in digital transformation programs and widening skills gap due to the pandemic have encouraged employees to demand access to skills-based learning programs that help them progress their careers.
  • Need to show return on investment (ROI) – Current metrics do not adequately demonstrate ROI in terms of the outcomes achieved through the learning program.

Products and services

Leaving you with a lasting capability.

People learn in differing ways and can have specific capability needs. There are two ways we look at growing capability. Academy, where the focus is primarily on a self-study approach, supported by experts and peers as needed, and pathways and programs that are instructor-led, allowing learners to get to the nuances of application to their role.

Programs and pathways

Our programs and pathways meet the specific needs of someone in a particular role and the typical challenges that role has in adopting new ways of working. They also recognize that teams need complementary skills and capabilities to build world-class products and services. So the pathways and programs are structured to build skills over time while making an immediate difference to the individual learner’s work environment.

Since every organization has its own culture, structure, customers, and business models, Learning Skills & Capabilities is optimized to help people discover, learn, adapt, and adopt what works best in their situation. Whether you’re an organization of 50 people or 50,000 people, we’ll tailor a solution to meet your budget, speed, and scale requirements.

Our approach

Emergn’s approach focuses on outcomes rather than any one specific method. It’s founded on the belief that lasting change requires transformative learning so people can acquire the best skills that apply to their work.

We believe organizations need to invest in life-long learning to attract and retain the best people. It starts from first contact with a recruiter, through onboarding, and then across the rest of an employee’s career. But education without context or application can be wasteful. Which is why we also believe in work-based learning – upskilling your employees in a way that is directly applicable to the work they are doing today and into the future.

Emergn’s key principles of Value, Flow, Quality (VFQ) are at the heart of our work-based approach. They enable people to learn and adopt new, modern ways of working to deliver products, services, or ideas to market faster. We ensure that what people are learning is valuable to them and the organization. We provide the content and teaching to maintain the flow of learning. And we gather fast feedback on key sessions to ensure the pace, style and depth of the learning is right for each individual.

Learning ecosystem

To ensure learning is a lever for transformation, we’ve built a learning ecosystem that includes:

You’ll benefit from an improved workforce with the right skills and capabilities to improve business outcomes, enabling the implementation of change at scale at a sustainable pace.

Certifications to be proud of

All of our courses are designed to help you put theory into practice and our material is based on the concept of ‘learning by doing’. We believe that this is the best way to help people develop the skills and capabilities they need to thrive in the digital economy.

An Emergn Certification is a mark based on evidence of practice, action and reflection. We’ve built them for practitioners and people who want to develop deeper expertise in actually doing what they learn. More weight is given to practical application over book knowledge and every submission is reviewed by a practitioner who is doing work similar to your field of study. Our practitioners and experts have been through what you’re going through. They have studied and applied skills in the same domain within their own organizations or on behalf of other world-class organizations.

Current certifications available:

One thing that always surprises us with the traditional certification process is the lack of feedback that learners get at the end of their learning journey. Whether someone has passed or failed, we believe a learner deserves feedback. Our validation process is a key part of the learning journey and every submission will involve feedback loops that help a learner improve – making it easier to acquire the skills they want and your organization needs.
