ICG appoints new business development manager

20 June 2006 ICG

Pam Erasmus has been appointed as Johannesburg business development manager for ICG Learning Solutions - the division of International Colleges Group working with Intec School of Insurance to offer learning solutions in response to government initiatives to upgrade national skills.

Formerly part of the Insurance Sector Education and Training Authority (INSETA) team for over five years, Erasmus brings with her enormous expertise in the field of learnerships in the financial services sector and knowledge of the insurance industry and its educational regulatory environment.

ICG Learning Solutions key focus is on developing scarce skills, learnerships and national training priorities and we are very happy to having someone with Erasmus experience on board, says CEO Nikki Wouterse.  

After three years working as a personal assistant to the skills development manager at INSETA, Erasmus found her niche in 2003 when INSETAs learnership division invited her to join their team as the learnership administrator. Her responsibilities included preparing monthly and annual statistics reports for the insurance sector, Department of Labour and South African Qualifications Authority as well as maintaining the integrity of the learnership system.

Within a year of holding this position Erasmus was promoted to learnerships consultant within the division. Policy, procedure, system and publication development as well as workshops, road shows and site visits were now part of her job profile. This was in addition to her consulting, client service and learnership application approval duties.  

Prior to her experience at INSETA which began in 2000. Erasmus worked as an assistant to an actuarial consultant for five years gaining her first experience in the financial services industry.

Now that she has joined ICG Learning Solutions in Johannesburg, she will be responsible for marketing ICG programmes and related services and procuring large contracts with private and public bodies in Gauteng.

Government is on a drive to educate and have provided great incentives to corporates to embark on training initiatives.  I look forward to working with an organisation with over 100 years experience, that can meaningfully facilitate this training initiative, says Erasmus.

The ICG Learning Solutions team is particularly excited about Erasmus appointment in Johannesburg as one of the divisions key strategies is to expand into the Gauteng market. ICG Learning Solutions is greatly looking forward to Pam not only making inroads into the corporate market in Johannesburg but also into the black brokerages and SMME market, concludes Wouterse.
