My name is Frans Brewis and I have been involved in IT training for the last 10 years. I also have a passion for programming with a strong focus on PHP and MySQL. In 2006 our institution trained 100 learners on an IT learnership and I was shocked to see how much of that was spend on administration and reports instead of training. I started developing a LMS with the idea to automate some of the processes to remove the high from the training staff.
The aim of this LMS is to…Continue

What is a learnership?
It is a structured learning programme during which the learner spends some time learning theory and some time learning practical skills in the workplace.
It leads to a qualification registered on the National Qualifications Framework. Such a qualification is designed to provide not only technical and work-specific skills, but life skills such as communication and teamwork.
Before the programme is implemented, a contract is drawn up…Continue
"My South Africa is the working-class man who called from the airport to return my wallet without a cent missing. It is the white woman who put all three of her domestic worker's children through the same school that her own child attended. It is the politician in one of our rural provinces, Mpumalanga, who returned his salary to the government as a statement that standing with the poor had to be more than just a few words. It is the teacher who worked after school hours every day during the…Continue
Retirement? What Retirement?
“The times they are a changin” never before has the title of this Bob Dylan classic been more relevant. Baby Boomers, those born between 1945 and 1964 have witnessed some truly amazing shifts in the world. Who knows what is in store for generation Y? The warp speed growth of technology is going to impact the way our children interact with the world, they will be employed in fields that have not yet been conceived. Information is no longer the reserve of…Continue
The “skills shortage” has become a convenient scapegoat for most shortcomings in service delivery by municipalities, public utilities and government departments. Businesses in the private sector often use the same lament as an excuse for sloppy service.
The skills shortage is gradually achieving a revered status, heading the long list of socio-economic challenges of our country. Billions of rands are about to be spent by government on ambitious plans to eradicate this…Continue

In a world and country where chaos often rains, it is frequently believed that more skills, more education and more training is the only offering to appease the monster god called production. However, in a time where guru's tell us that the are aligning, that world destruction is upon is, but that there is hope, if we change our attitudes, our views and beliefs. Books like The Secret and Matrix Re imprinting (too mention but a few)will have us believe that all we need to do is to imagine a…Continue

Job dissatisfaction affects all employees in different degrees at different times. Like stress, how we choose to respond is more important than trying to deny or painfully suffer the consequences.
Many years ago, I learned about the EVLN Model in an organisational textbook. The simplicity of the model has always stuck with me, and often when in a teaching or facilitation moment, I share the model as an awareness tool for where dissatisfied staff may find…Continue

Hardly had President Zuma set the job creation target at half a million new jobs per year or the prophets of doom started telling us that the target was unachievable. This despite the proposed jobs fund of 9 billion rand over the next three years to finance new job-creation initiatives, the Industrial Development Corporation setting aside R10 billion over the next five years for investment in economic activities with a high jobs potential and the R20 billion in tax allowances or tax breaks…Continue

Does anyone know the current QCTO Contact Details? I would like to know the phone number for the QCTO. I think it stands for Quality Council for Trades and Occupations.
I'm having difficulty finding actual contact numbers for the QCTO. All I can find are four e-mail addresses.
Is there anyone who has more than that? I need to talk to someone about a new qualification....
In the middle of January, 2011, I sent out an invitation to all registered setas to put together a communication strategy aimed at schools throughout South Africa. The main aim of this call is to send out a single, united voice that will be directed at giving our future generation a clearer picture of what our government has been doing to help create skills, jobs, promote entrepreneurship through the establishment of the SETA's.
Last Thursday the Minister of Higher Education, Dr Blade…Continue
