Should the standard retirement age be lowered and related to occupations?

In the days when an employee stayed at the same company for many years - sometimes from school to retirement, pension funds were the standard retirement funding vehicle. Since then, many things have changed in the world of work: the casualisation of labour, outsourcing, the introduction of labour brokers, the use of fixed term contracts, and even for those with permanent work, much shorter employment periods and the move from pension funds to provident funds.Now the South African government…See More

Programme Director, Students.

Thank you for the opportunity to speak at this event celebrating women’s month.

Our post-apartheid democracy has advanced the rights and status of women in South Africa. In school girls have equal access to boys and are performing at improved levels in many subjects.

I would like to make some enquiries with regard to the tarrifs being used when selling or pricing the learning material. A master copy consist of Training Manual, Facilitators Guide, Leaner's Guide and Powerpoint Presentation of the manual. How to charge when someone requests you produce material for him, example 25 learners, do I charge per learner per manual? Your prompt is highly appreciated.
