Ian Webster replied to sylvia hammond's discussion How to define "previously unemployed" when claiming Learnership Tax Incentive in the group Skills Development Facilitators
"Yes, Des, you are right. I am confident that what we did would pass muster under the amended legislation. It is a contract with a specific and stated purpose rather than an arbitrary one."

Des Squire replied to sylvia hammond's discussion How to define "previously unemployed" when claiming Learnership Tax Incentive in the group Skills Development Facilitators
"This will be impacted further by the new legislation relating to part time employees. In addition the term will have to be clearly defined in terms of the reasons and the duration. I am not aware of any exceptions having been outlined. "

Ian Webster replied to sylvia hammond's discussion How to define "previously unemployed" when claiming Learnership Tax Incentive in the group Skills Development Facilitators
"Yes, exactly that. It was a fixed-term contract, but effectively a probationary period. It stated that it was for the purposes of assessment, including medical and other assessments. If successful the employee would be offered an apprenticeship. if…"

Programme Director, Students.

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. In higher education women are more than 50% of the student body, and while we all want to see more of them in scarce disciplines we are proud of their progress.

UBUNTU reminds everybody who was a Bantu education victim the 1976 unrest. Ubuntu is scary, quality education without this label Ubuntu should ultimately be implemented. The children of South Africa deserve to get educated and that's what their parents want according to Human Rights. Quality education will create jobs. A country without education will continue with conflicts and to avoid this it'll be very good to remove the cause.

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.
