Naledi Pandor asks: Why are women the majority at universities but invisible in national & international debate?

Posted on August 31, 2013 at 16:29 0 Comments

In clinics and…

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.
