Groen Sebenza Jobs Fund project

Posted on May 29, 2014 at 12:43 0 Comments

Leading such an amazing programme has been a real joy to me and when one considers that the Human Resource Development (HRD) landscape is not just driven by the SETA system, but by a range of players. It also just that there are other positive opportunities out there that are not constrained by the inefficiency of the current SETA/OQF system.

For me the Jobs Fund green jobs project has demonstrated how important 'joined-up' projects are for sectors that are in dire need of…

For those of you attending the HRD expo, good luck and I hope you all have a fantastic time, with lost of networking and business opportunities.

A journey of passion, learning and adventure spanning 2,750 km in 33 days, from Cunene to Cape Town!

As learning professionals we often talk about learning as a structured, qualification-driven experience or perhaps an informal process than qualifies us by experience (QBE), well I think we have forgotten just how powerful adventure and personal challenges can be in driving intense learning about ourselves and the world around us. I know I have forgotten about how much setting a challenge of this scale could take me so much further within myself and in the value I add to this world and…


QCTO recruiting senior staff!

Posted on January 8, 2012 at 15:58 0 Comments

A snippet of news, it seems as though the QCTO are recruiting senior staff in the key areas of occupational qualification development and assessments, which must be a sign that the wheels are beginning to turn. I have also had a catch up with a colleague of mine who has been intimately involved with the design and development of a full qualification and what it will look like. I will post further detail with regards that shortly.

Hi, Ashwell

I've posted a blog on transfer of learning.  The info that you provided in the training provider group is very valuable and I am afraid that some people might miss it.  Won't you please copy and paste it in response to my blog?

This is such an important topic and hopefully there will be more response.

Kind Regards

Hi Ashwell... I wanted to explain the situation with Seta external moderation we are facing but we need to be friends for me to inbox you the details? anyway

we had a 1st visit - the verifyer tried to bribe us and we reported it, then we had another visit the verifyer had remedial comments - we took it up with the ETQA since all those remedial actions were "recommendations" and no real default on learner achievemnt as such... then we had another vist but we are struggling to get the report for that out of the verifyer? now in the process of requestiing the report they just reverted back to schedule another visit - BUT we dont know if there is any remedial actions they still require or what is the case! snce we are not getting report out of them?... what should we do?

Ten years ago, most Durban Universities did not offer a HR degree so students found alternatives route in HR management e.g. industrial psychology, labour studies ,etc. Where in your opinion would you say the future of Industrial Psychology is going?

Hi, Ashwell

Thanks for letting me know about the ECD tender. We are not an NGO, but I informed our NGO partners about it.

All of the best!
