Hi Cobus. Many thanks for the welcome! I have been with CTU for 4 years now, so I have alot of experience when it comes to training & development of staff. We specialise in IT training, with alot of additional training like Softksills. We are also big on learnerships & internships and building strong relationships with the Seta's. We have a consulting division which can assist with WSP's, ATR's & LOI's. Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you. Regards, Charlene

Hi Cobus

Wow, your welcome took me by surprise! Thank you! I have not really spent much time on the site but I am keen to read and learn from other practitioners. I have a special interest in soft skills training and supervisory development. I do hope we will be able to network in future.


Have a great week :)
