Gill Connellan replied to sylvia hammond's discussion Is this Learnership Allowance yours or mine?
"Well said, Sylvia!  And it certainly doesn't help that there are countless other strategy and draft policy and regulation documents that are circulated and then never finalised!  A minefield for new entrants to this game."

Hi Gill,
Thanks - yes one of the issues that came up was that there was a proposal to "do away with" SDFs - apparently Dina Porteous had a document that she was going to send to you. Is it possible that you could forward a copy to me please? Many thanks.

Please feel free to join the Western Cape group & as many other groups as you are interested in - I see you've found the SDFs - and of course, please invite your friends & colleagues to join. I look forward to your contribution to our forum, groups and blogs.
