    ECD: Recognition of Prior Learning

    Posted by Wilma de Villiers on February 23, 2015 at 19:22 5 Comments

    I have very little experience in RPL.  What I have realized over the years that there are many myths and/ or misunderstandings regarding the RPL processes. RPL is a path that we are now investigating and preparing for. 

    I googled and found valuable websites, especially regarding ECD RPL in Australia.  I also looked at their diagnostic tool but am not sure what the criteria exactly are for a diagnostic tool.  The purpose of the tool is clear to me but not the…

    Let's be positive about low shedding

    Posted by Bronwyn Newman on February 8, 2015 at 14:08 0 Comments

    We have been lied to, manipulated by the truth, bullied into paying more n more for electricity and now we have load shedding that leaves us having to constantly check social platforms to make sure if it is happening and not just randomly suspended.



    We are told to exercise caution now by switching off all our appliances by the plugs and also unplugging them.
