As an existing student of the North West Univerity honours education in training and development, I can only provide positive and constructive inputs regarding this programme. As one of the few programmes that focus solely on training and development as well as the emerging field of human resource development (HRD) I would really recommend it for adult learners with a track record in the skills development as well as education, training and development environment.

Groen Sebenza Jobs Fund project

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?
