The system applied when registering Assessors, Moderators, Verifiers and Accredited Training Providers is flawed with unnecessaryprocesses that can only lead to mismanagement and corruption.

Many of the people who peruse the necessary documentation and who make the necessary recommendations are not necessarily competent and sufficiently informed on the processes that need to be followed in order to be involved in these important decision making. To first be accredited by one…

'N Nogge Ding Wat Kom - Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-B BEE)

My understanding is that government will push ahead with B-B BEE inspite of the fact that it has failed the people, the impoverished masses.

The few "GREEDY GLUTTERS" have taken the opportunities and wealth all for themselves at the expense mof the masses. No other country in the world has spit out so many millionaires without the input of a "DIME" what utter rubbish of making the masses believe that they are all included in this B-B BEE when the few rich got RICHER and the…

Transformation of the Skills Training and Development Landscape

If it does'nt do this with expert knowledge of developing a sustainable and measureable national economy that talk to various economic sectors, it is as doomed as what the result was in the education skills training and…

One of the best email I ever read!!!! An Oldie But Worth Sharing Again & Again ...

Two Choices

What would you do? make the choice. Don't look for a punch line, there isn't one. Read it anyway. My question is: Would you have made the same choice?

Positivity and racial harmony. Madiba's legacy, our challenge.

South African’s who lived through the dying days of apartheid and the early rise of our new democracy recall the amazing shift that occurred in this country after the release of Nelson Mandela. We recognize the powerful impact of Madiba’s magnanimity towards his former oppressors, his warmth and graciousness towards people of all races. He is a wonderful example for us all to follow. Can you recall the pride that flowed through our hearts when our rugby team won the 1995 World Cup? How… Continue

The Power Of Positivity in the workplace

Employees determine how things are going throughout the workday and within the organization by observing how managers/supervisors are acting at any given moment.And,because Employees collect 80% of their information from non- verbal cues managers/supervisors give off ,and not from the words they speak,it's how managers/supervisors act that matters to Employees.If managers/supervisors have a worried expression constantly on their face,everyone in the workplace is affected - and not in a good…

NSDS3 - Hmmmmm

Having had a quick squiz through the proposed NSDS3 I see that once again Public institutions - colleges, tech, varsities etc - are being supported to improve. Now, while improvement is always great - I really hope that NSDS 3 puts in some clear parameters on what has to happen.

Whilst private providers generally have to be responsive to the world of work and its training needs or they don't make a buck - i generally see the more entrenched public bodies just doing…

Services Seta Registered Assessor

So, I finally received my Report from the Services Seta, which states that I have been registered as an assessor. I had been waiting for it since December but, to be quite honest, I expected to wait six months instead of the six weeks I had been promised. It was only the second time in the past few months that I experienced such an overwhelming sense of achievement. The first was when the sustainability report I produced for my previous employer was voted the Best Report for 2008 within…

As an external Moderator fro the Services Seta I would like to add a viewpoint for your consideration.
There are many Training Providers out there not adhering to the basic quality assurance procedures and yes the few good providers will suffer as a result of the stringent measures introduced. We are there to provide quality qualifications to the learnes and that is forgotten in the mix
