David Adrian Glanvill replied to sylvia hammond's discussion Do we need an Ombudsman for the post-school education and training landscape?
"The mere fact that an Ombudsman is urgently needed suggests that the DHET or any other Governmental body, is not competent to run with the task. Nor should it be funded by the Government, or, at least, not directly.  Who holds the Purse Strings…"

Jacqui Baumgardt replied to sylvia hammond's discussion Do we need an Ombudsman for the post-school education and training landscape?
"Sylvia, I tend to disagree. I think this should be industry driven - to expect a DHET official to do this would in my opinion be a conflict of interest. We need someone with clout in the private sector - e.g. Des Squires or Hannes Nel or someone in…"

    SMOKING AT WORK

    Posted by Wilma de Villiers on April 21, 2014 at 21:30 5 Comments

    I read an interesting article in the Weekend Argus of 15 March 2014, THANK YOU FOR NOT SMOKING AT WORK Tony Healy discussed smoking at work in his article.

    Smokers are entitled to smoke before and after work, during their lunch and tea breaks. This is unfortunately not happening in most instances.

     One of my favourite musicals "My Fair Lady" has always had, and always will have, a great and very positive impact on both my life and my work. Funnily enough, I was even referred to by one of my many clients as "the Fair Lady." The ability to communicate and express oneself genuinely, whether through a musical instrument, vocally, artistically or through dance has becoming…
