"I would like to know why, when approached to facilitate and assess Learnerships, one is expected to work for a very low daily / hourly rate? I was asked to facilitate five fundamental maths unit standards in five days and assess them as…"
"I am in full agreement with the above suggestions. We need to be able to cost our services according to both the time needed and the level of skills necessary to train and conduct assessments on specific unit standards."
"Yes Deon, one cannot assume that the individual making the decision whether or not to grant "accreditation" is qualified to do so. Often this process can be alikened to a Geography teacher attempting to mark Matric Maths papers.…"

I train English Business Writing Skills for second language users of English as well as Financial Workshops beginning with the basics and building up to Budgeting and Interpretations of Financial Statements. I am also able to assess a variety of courses in the fields of English and Finances.I come from a teaching background and like to develop my own material as required.
Our accreditation is with SASSETA. When I joined this company, it was in quite a mess and i upgraded our QMS. I am intrested to find a "paperless" QMS that we can upload policies and procedures to, and it can control documents etc. If I had to explain what I would be interested in, i would say its a combination of a Learner Management System, together with a Quality Management System. If it produced EE and WSP/ATR reports, that would be fantastic.
Dear Lynette, thank you very much for the friend request. I hope you are well? Are you based in Johannesburg? Do you have time to facilitate financial skills training or are you a full-time employee of the Law Society? My best, Ashwell
