Marie Smith replied to Des Squire's discussion Notional hours - what impact do they have?
"DK, the provider had been accredited for the programmes but the client had 'company specific' materials developed to be facilitated by the accredited provider - was not possible to check that the specific material had been approved. "

"Actually, what you are saying is exactly why we started developing the system in the first place. AC's can indeed have terrible formulation and can be repetitive. So instead of using the AC's themselves as a marking template as we used to…"

"You are correct if you are assessing against a learning programme, then the assessments are integrated. Maybe the IT company has only dealt with unit standards or short courses?"

    Lliam and the Lady with the brooms. Our humanness makes a HUGE difference!

    Posted by Brian V Moore on November 19, 2014 at 11:45 0 Comments

    I have been taking more time to be aware of who is around me, and am taking time to see how I give be more kind and caring. 



    Here is another lesson from our 13 year old son Lliam, that has re-awakened this awareness.

    I was with him at the bakery, where a beautiful and gracious, 70-something Zulu lady sat with a number of brooms. She was selling them to supplement her meager…

     All people are looking for, is a little respect and recognition.

    Our Los Angeles shuttle driver looked bemused, after we had greeted our hotel porter, in Spanish. 

    “I thought you guys were from South Africa. Where did you learn Mexican?” He asked. 

    “Right here, in LA.” 

    “How long have you been here”, he asked. 

    “Two days.”

    Mentoring a Winner: What an Experience!

    Posted by Charles Dey on November 18, 2014 at 7:32 7 Comments

    That phone call from Istanbul, “Fortunate has won!” will not be forgotten very soon. A journey which started late in December last year culminated in a young colleague, Fortunate Mboweni, winning the 2014 Young Freight Forwarder of the Year competition which is organised by the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA).

    Fortunate is the first Africa born African to have won this competition since its inception in 1999.

    What an amazing experience to…

    How do I make a positive first impression with my clients?

    Posted by Jeanine Topping on November 17, 2014 at 11:49 0 Comments

    Everyone makes mistakes. Fortunately, however, they can be rectified in many cases. If the wrong amount of money is transferred, it can be reversed; if the wrong information is given, it can be corrected with a polite apology.

    In business matters too, there is a ‘second chance’ that allows for an error to be straightened out and which sometimes can even be turned into an advantage. But there is one time when this is not the case: The first impression.

    Making a good first…

    The BRILLIANT Cape Town flower sellers.

    Posted by Brian V Moore on November 17, 2014 at 9:37 8 Comments

    We ALL add value.



    The cool Cape breeze took the edge off Spring, as I stood on the corner of Wale and Buitengracht streets, in Cape Town on a Sunday morning. I was next to a liquor store and a large rectangle of beautiful flowers - attended by two flower sellers. 



    The middle-aged Muslim couple graciously sold me a few single flowers for a surprise early morning gift for Arthie. A beautiful Protea and a white lily made up my tiny present.



    I greeted the…
