The Principles of Adult Learning: The Individualisation Principle

Article written by Dr J.P. Nel, MD Mentornet The individualisation principle postulates that every student learns at his or her own pace and has his or her own particular aptitude for learning. These differences should be taken into consideration when offering learning as well as when assessing students.Some argue that it is discriminatory to group students according to ability and to offer individual assistance to “slower” students. There is an element of truth in this argument. However, not…See More

Writing a email is like a declaration of war

Posted on September 18, 2013 at 10:30 11 Comments

Have you noticed, people often don’t interpret you email messages the way you meant it? This often leads to the demise of friendships and healthy business relationships. Take Facebook (or Twitter, MXIT, Whatsapp, BBM, etc.) as an example. Someone may send thousands of messages over a long period of time, and then, one day, they send just one, JUST ONE message that people interpret negatively, then all the good work of so many previous messages is down the drain. We all know of examples where…

The thin line between bribery and paying for services rendered

Posted on July 15, 2013 at 9:19 5 Comments

Now don’t get me wrong – Mentornet will never ever pay anybody a bribe for the simple reason that it is against the law. Problem is, now that the Minister of Higher education and Training in his infinite wisdom decided to channel almost all skills grants to public learning institutions he might just have unleashed a new corruption and bribery beast in especially FET Colleges. If I add my own experiences to…

Can private learning institutions lead the way in offering quality ETD?

Posted on July 1, 2013 at 13:40 5 Comments

In a Skills Universe message on 23 June 2013 Cas Olivier aired his view that private learning institutions are more flexible than public learning institutions and, as I understand it, private learning institutions should set the example in offering good quality ETD. If one were to research statistics on learning institutions you may well get the impression that he is right. However, as we have seen so…

When the assessment system fails the student

Posted on August 14, 2012 at 14:12 9 Comments

I believe most of us know of instances where lecturers or other staff members of learning institutions actually collaborate with students to cheat in examinations. This also happens after the examinations, for example where assessors are instructed by their superiors to inflate the examination results so that the learning institution will not look bad. Any such practice is a disservice to the students because ultimately students are required to perform jobs for which their studies were…

It is deeply disturbing and truly worrying that individuals lacking moral conscience manage to gain access to learners and learning opportunities without any intent of delivering contractually agreed deliverables and acceptable serivce quality.

More so the fact that they (unscrupulous entities) manage to get away with it at the cost of honest providers and learners.

Thank u Dr, according to my knowledge there is no NLRD for AET level 1 to 3, only GETC level, even DOE doesn't have am I correct? Do you perhaps know why? As AET is such a demand.

Hi Dr please help me I need to know is it obliged for a training provider to be accredited in order to offer AET level 1 and 2, hence there is no NLRD for AET?
