Board Members and/or Directors how-so-ever they may call themselves nowadays are required to make important decisions that is normally based on the information presented to the Board.
It is necessary for Board Members to have the basic knowledge & understanding of the various legislation and regulations affecting their fiduciary responsibilities and accountabilities to their stakeholders, government and the nation as a whole. WOW what a BIG..... TALL ORDER. Not so if you…Continue

With the onset of National Skills Development Strategy 3 (NSDS 3) which is currently being discussed and debated it appears obvious that should the proposals contained in the discussion document be implemented, which I believe they will,…Continue
One of the biggest frustrations in SETA's is the ignorance of Board Members to differentiate between their strategic positions on Boards and that of involvement in the operations.
The other frustrating factors are the complete non performance and non compliance by "Boards" in not knowing and understanding their fiduciary duty as "Directors" of the various SETA's. The various "ACTS", Legislation and regulations affecting the responsibilities of the "Authorities" require Board…Continue

All of us are part of CIVIL SOCIETY and really need to be VOCAL and put in all of our efforts TO STOP WOMAN BATTERING, CHILD ABUSE AND SENIOR CITIZEN ABUSE.

Our people and our society is so very rich in diversity which create so many challenges and opportunities for ALL.
There is a good Shakespearian quote ".... the evil in men doth lie is oft interred in his bones...." and it is so true when we look around us and engage in so many activities....... "the good and the bad", "the beauty & the ugle" (personality of course), and those who keep on telling the previously disadvantaged how to do it their way (the old fashion…Continue

What the "heck" make you private practitioners even suggest that the FET Colleges & OTHER ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS are your competitors?
No way will I allow myself to be insulted by any suggestions of this nature as most of you have inherent entrepreneurial, professional, practical commerce and industry savvy that make you all stand out from the rest of the academia. You are the children of "THE UNIVERSE" that make the Skills Training & Development of our Human Capital so…Continue

There are many rumours circulating about the future of Private Providers in terms of the NSDS 3. Some of these have been started by prominent people from SETAS and other so called professional associations. To quote from an advertisment on Skills Portal
The proposal is simple:
THERE IS NO ROLE FOR PRIVATE TRAINING PROVIDERS IN SETA SIGHTS, EXCEPT FOR THE ABILITY OF PRIVATE TRAINING PROVIDERS TO CAPACITATE PUBLIC TRAINING PROVIDERS OR IF THEY ENTER INTO A PUBLIC-PRIVATE…Continue

Accepting that much of our behaviour impacts on our environment in which we operate and in many ways we need to have patience as we cannot change the "WORLD".
Good leaders acquire exceptional talent in understanding human behaviour and what makes a person respond in a positive manner particularly those who are in a position of "Authority". We need to accept that as a member of the human race we are all busy doing something, and our individual behaviour are different as weare…Continue

The NSDS iii is still very much of a working document and subject to public hearings and submissions that will be taking place later this month.
The submissions will be perused and considered by experts in the various sectors that are affected socially, economically, politically etc. and hopefully by civil society who will look into the proposals submitted, oral submissions, suggestions and advice and they will submit to the Minister for Higher Education & Training by…Continue
It is indeed mind boggling when one assesses how people vary in their reaction to change.
Some will welcome the novelty and the variety of the change (think outside of the box) while others primarily coming from the "OLD SCHOOL" prior 1994 era with no change to their mindset and set in the belief that society will wait on them. NOT SO. Many of these "ANTIQUES" fear the exciting change and the sharing of the challenges and opportunities and will do everything in their own…Continue
