WOMEN'S DAY: REMEMBERING 1956: 'Wathint' abafazi, wathint' imbokodo'

9 August 1956: 20 000 women of all races marched to the Union Buildings, Pretoria, to hand over a petition against the Urban Areas Act.

The march against the pass laws was organised under the banner of the Federation of South African Women.

The Federation challenged the idea that 'a woman's place is in the kitchen', declaring it instead to be everywhere'.

Although Prime Minister J.G. Strijdom was not at the Union Buildings to accept the petition, the women of… Continue

How do we get more students

Good day all,

I work as an assessor for a NPO Training Center, I have such a passion for what I am doing but the problem is that we do not get the numbers of students we need to keep the center going.

We cater for the less fortunate so our course prices are very low but the standards is very high.

What do we do to get more students?? Why does everyone complain about prices of Training Centers but are also not willing to support the centers who really wants to…

Merging small business in HR, Training Or Recruitment

We all know times are tough and with the recession and BEE laws, some small businesses in Training and HR have closed shop because they do not have enough clients. Why do big business merge when the going gets tough? I have a strong standing Recruitment Company with even more potential for growth and think I can contribute to some accredited trainer who is struggling to find work since my clients have more faith in me than a new service provider trying to impress. I am also considering…

Is There a Debate On the Future of FET NATED Courses

Bureaucracy with its redtape can leave people misinformed thereby taking decisions that are in sharp contrast to national aspirations in matters of national importance. I was informed by authorities at one FET college that the DoHE&T is in the process of fazing out FET Nated courses which will be completely non-existent come year 2015. The said authorities were pretending to be talking from a well informed platform and they have already started doing away with N4, enrolling only their…

Keep flying our flag and shout for education!

I did say earlier that it is not about who governs but how they govern! This is very confusing in South Africa because of our apartheid past. If we are white and we don’t vote ANC it’s because we obviously want to go back to an apartheid South Africa and if we are black and we don’t want to vote ANC we are traitors. I think I understand this turmoil in our young…

We as members of civil society can never allow xenephobia to continue to threaten the lives of members of society irrespective of religion, culture, nationality nor any other diverse factors that allow the gangsters, criminals who continue to terrorise, kill and maim innocent law abiding people.

To just be a passive bystander in hearing and seeing how these satanic members of the very society that espouse as GOD fearing people can allow these criminal elements to kill, maim…

If any of us want to really serve humanity and that include our family, friends, neighbours and community as a whole, we need to show and practise exceptional values and qualities that are really inborn in our heart.

It is therefore a practise that our team culture is a winner. We further practise and live in honesty, we are reliable and transparent. We use our knowledge and that which we are competent in, with confidence and with a positive approach. With these factors come…

I am a degreed speech and drama specialist with 25 years experience. I cringe at the service standards within South Africa and was deeply concerned about our government employing facilitators from the USA Disneyworld who came here pre world cup to train our nation on what customer service should be. I attended two workshops and found the content irrelevant to our unique new democracy. There was very little evidence of any research having been done prior to the training and all…
