Similar to a business analyst, but focused into digital learning management & execution.

We are looking for a Learning Technologist, and it could be you! First, let’s work out if we’re a good match for you.

Our vision

Learning never stops, the finish line is never crossed. We have the goal of helping learners from all corners of the earth to achieve the career of their dreams. Our goal is to provide learners the same quality of learning from the foundation phase and then guide them on their way to a career, or vocation for the jobs of tomorrow referred to as the fourth industrial revolution. The schooling system has had very little change in the last 100 years and still educates learners in a factory type fashion, each with their own desk in rows. The work of tomorrow is about technology, collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship. The Advantage Learn class of tomorrow will be enriched not only with teaching, but career guidance and opportunities through our collaboration with tertiary education providers and companies who want to invest in the workforce of tomorrow.

Our team

We have a hard-working and diverse team, young and old, with a wide range of interests including running, music, surfing, food, video gaming, travelling, beer, hiking, languages and obviously learning! Although most of us are in Durban (SA), we are a digital-first company with people working remotely as well as in-office, and our time together is always fun.

Our work 

(As it relates to a Learning Technologist)

Learning technologist is our term for a combination of a business analyst and someone who is actively involved in managing, researching, supporting or enabling learning with the use of learning technology. 

Digitally enabled learning is the heart of our business, and ensuring its success is paramount. Learning technologists are the champions of this success using best-of-breed tools and processes, whether it’s making sure existing solutions are being utilised and managed effectively or driving for improvements on these solutions. 

Learning technologists work in a small but effective team within the Solutions & technology division of Advantage Learn. This division is led by the CTO and designs, develops and manages the digital learning platforms, which is why the learning technologist is such a critical role in this team.
