    MY SOUTH AFRICA

    Posted by Wilma de Villiers on April 25, 2015 at 13:38 1 Comment

    I hope this was not published before on 'Skills Universe' ...

    I want to share the following  from an article in a Mango inflight magazine (9 February 2011):

    “My South Africa is the working-class man who called from the airport to return my wallet without a cent missing. It is the white woman who put all three of her domestic worker’s children through the school that her own child attended. It is the politician one of our rural provinces, Mpumalanga, who…

    STIPENDS INFLUENCE MOTIVATION TO STUDY

    Posted by Wilma de Villiers on April 21, 2015 at 20:45 13 Comments

    We are busy with a RPL pilot project.  There is no stipend attached to the project because one of the criteria is that learners must be employed. They do not have to pay for the course and get all the learning material for free.

    The learners were very excited when they were informed that they were selected.  At orientation they were informed that there will be no stipend but only a transport allowance of R200.  It is now…

    WSP for NPO - How much of the training applied for in WSP is subsidized?

    Posted by Nthakoana Maema on April 16, 2015 at 11:52 16 Comments

    Good morning,

    I trust you are all well. I am a newbie in this business. Currently finalizing the WSP for the NPO where I work. This may be a blond question however I would like to know how much of the WSP is subsidized for NPO if in corporate I gather it ranges from 50%.

    Does anyone know how the funding is based and decided? Should we as an organisation have the financial capacity to carry out the training if it happens that we do not get approved.
