Totally stupid provider got it right!

In follow-up to the posting on August 11, I would like to announce that the ETDPSETA has finally managed to evaluate my three levels of ABET Literacy programmes and has declared them APPROVED!

Even though I am very thankful to be able to continue with this line of business, I am convinced that the process to comply to the requirements should not be so energy draining and definitely should not take this much time and effort from the client-end to drive the progress. I will continue to…

Qualify as an ODETD Practitioner by RPL assessment

Yes, you can qualify as an ODETD practitioner at NQF level 5, in full or in part, by means of RPL Assessment.

The cost of training has in many instances become prohibitive for many HR and Skills Development practitioners. But this does not have to be the case. Many of the practitioners and SDF’s I deal with have already gained a great deal of experience and workplace exposure that will go a long way in assisting them with RPL assessment.

The ODETD qualification at NQF… Continue

How to Manage Conflict in the Workplace

Workplace conflict is unavoidable and can be a time-consuming and costly problem if it is not managed correctly. Despite this, many managers lack the ability to confront conflict and manage employee relationships in their organisations. When broaching the subject of workplace conflict it is important to remember that conflict never works in isolation and thus can quickly spiral out of control if not managed correctly. This is why it is so important to understand what causes conflict in the…

Sorry for the past

My life now poised between life and death

I know not which, it matters not

What matters most is what has past, and what may lie ahead

And how I lived my life now past and also live the future

I’ve caused them pain as well as grief - I failed them when in need

On looking back it’s very clear I know what I have done

I can’t undo the past… Continue
