Stop Wasting Time!

When will companies or new Training Service providers realise that when wanting to go the Accreditation route there are NO SHORTCUTS. A few weeks ago I write a blog about people usually taking good care when it comes to buying their car but actually don’t seem to care about the quality of the Training Material OR bother going the route of getting an expert in to help with Accreditation.

Services Seta

Good morning

I just need to find out if anyone else is struggling to get responses from the Services Seta with regards to extension of accreditation that is expiring March 2016?  I am not getting any joy and have been sending mails and trying to speak to someone since November last year.  Has anyone got contact details for someone helpful at the Services Seta?

Take Two in the Morning Before You Wake Up

Instantaneous response; that’s what we have come to expect today. If Google takes more than a second to return its search results, we want to throw our computer out the window. And heaven help the car in front of us if they fail to respond to the changed traffic light before it happens.

  • Understand what type of brand you are looking for. Will it be BMW or 1966 Volkswagen Beatle?

INFOGRAPHIC: Process Tools for Effective Meeting Facilitation

Differentiation - Another method of Learning and Instruction

We can write the best manuals in the world but the Facilitator still needs to have some structure in the classroom, and the Facilitator Guide can help a great deal here. I have been doing some research on various manners in which knowledge can be permanently transferred to adult learners. I came across Differentiated Instruction and looked into it. Some of the principles are known in our SA environment.

Although this methodology is used in the GET band,  I wonder if it cannot be used…

Hope for all! Do you have a solution?

We all need HOPE!

In our travels around the country, working with and meeting diverse people, I have discovered that the greatest thing missing in our country is Hope.

I met a man, in the rural Western Cape, who runs a very successful tuckshop. They supply all the daily groceries needs in the area. And the most awesome calamari, fish and chips. People travel great distances, to buy from him.

J, designated “coloured”, in South Africa, told me a…
