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.

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…

AQ in education - meaningless words...

QA in education means also Quality Control in education. (ISO standards tell you this many times).

ANC government did away with inspectors because of the focus on the individual reposnsibilities and lack of competences that will be uncovered. there are reacial undertones here therefore avoid the issue.

Government and specifically the S.SETA did away and ignored professional bodies in the SETA processes, therefore doing away with those people and bodies that provides…

Severence pay /Defn of Remuneration- Retrenchment of sales staff

My understanding is that if a sales person has a company car ( to enable them to perform their duties) and they are retrenched, then the value of the cpy car does not form part of the remuneration when calculating severence pay as the sales person will no longer be performing their duties. Same would apply to the use of a cell phone. Can anyone refer me to the relevant BCEA schedule or gazette where the defn of remuneration for severence pay is explained in more detail i.e. exclusions. I cannot… Continue
