I think that the Skills Levy should be re-directed to the FET Colleges. It has been proven that the SETA's was a failed and futile exercise with Private Service Providers making a killing financially, without providing the necessary skills required.

This money should rather be used to have more FET Colleges and pay adequately qualified staff decent salaries with benefits. There is a dire shortage of FET Colleges in most areas. At the same time there are…

Employment for intellectually impaired people

I would be most grateful if anyone could assist me. I am desperately looking for employment for someone who has a slight intellectual impairment. Are there any agencies etc who deal specifically with this? I was told that the Dept of Labour should be able to assist, but to date I have not had any success with them. Could someone perhaps offer some advice that would help me please?

What about all the other unprofessional business documents that refect badly on a company's image?

A Professional Business Writing Programme gives insight into the…
