My understanding has been that, you get accredited by SETAS as an Assessor and or/Moderator and that anyone with the necessary skills and experience can become a facilitator. Can anyone give clarity on this please? Does being an accredited facilitator mean…Continue
I have very little experience in RPL. What I have realized over the years that there are many myths and/ or misunderstandings regarding the RPL processes. RPL is a path that we are now investigating and preparing for.
I googled and found valuable websites, especially regarding ECD RPL in Australia. I also looked at their diagnostic tool but am not sure what the criteria exactly are for a diagnostic tool. The purpose of the tool is clear to me but not the…Continue

One of the major changes brought about by the New Companies Act that will affect start-ups is the availability of business names.

Building respect and relationships, within negotiating teams will change the outcomes of wage negotiations.
Picture an All Black playing against the Springboks. They are traditional rivals. As he walks onto the field, he has no thought of negotiation in mind. His focus is to win at any cost. The Bok players feel exactly the same.
His team start with an impressive Haka. (In South Africa…Continue

This a very interesting article on the benefits of napping from Productivity SA Newsletter for January
Napping and Productivity
A general consensus has emerged over the years that people nap not to recover from last night's party, but more often than not to make up for early-morning commutes, long work hours, and too many responsibilities at home. After a little nap, they feel more alert and do a better job. In fact, some American…Continue

A story of self-denial in a World of opportunity.
I used to watch in amazement as friends walked away from great opportunities, because an unknown group called “they”, said they were “bad.” When I asked who “they” were, there was never a definitive answer.
Around the world Governments rise and fall because of “them”. Examinations are difficult because “they” are out to get the students. Families are in conflict because the mysterious “they” intervened. People…Continue

The song hung in the air like fragrant and colourful blossoms in the wind. It was strange and yet familiar.…Continue
