Thanks for the welcome Sylvia. I'll have a look see about the rest of the stuff on my profile but right now up to my eyeballs and drowning in paperwork. All I want to say is that I think this is a fantastic idea. Well done to you and to Allan!
Thanks for welcoming me into your family. I joined because I belive in networking that connects like-minded people and is constructive. I am positive that this is one such network and i shall add my penny's worth in relevant discussions.
Personally, I am a consultant in the broader HRD sprectum. Skills development in all its formats is one of my specialities. I have been in this field since 2002 in different portfolios.
I am currently assisting a provider to set up their QMS for accreditation and also have a client who wants me to train Project Management to his management team.
i am also registered as a Assessor and a Moderator with the Isett Seta for the End User Computing qualification.
One of the things that I hope to achieve through this forum is information sharing that helps us to grow and understand better the world that we are engaging.
Well I think I have said a mouthful for now and I need to run.
I am looking forward to engaging with other members.
Regards and thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
I intend to be as involved as my vibrance allows me. I am going to use this platform to grow as an individual and to advance. I know is stall have a lot ot learn to learn about whats happening around me and believe me when I say that I AM HERE TO STAY!!
Thanks for the comments. I have often thought about getting something like this started - but you know what it's like - we all sti waiting for someone else to do it. I'll be glad to help you get this going and keep the interest. There is just so much to learn from others. We started a semi-formal mentoring programme at the Open Learning Group where we are spending time with our line managers guiding them on issues both of a work nature and personal. I'm thinking about possibly starting a mentoring group for those that feel they need metoring or those that wish to participate. Do you have comments on this?
many thanks for your response. i've googled the SABPP and i'm probably going to register. what would be the next step in my journey to my HR Career goal? having applied to so many HR roles in the newspapers with no responses, my spirits have been scattered but i don't want to give up. i want to grow in the HR field in leaps and bounds! Whats your suggestion?
Just a question!
I've registered as an Assessor with Services Seta as well as the ETDP Seta, my current role is a Recruitment Consultant. I've done all the required legislation training as well written the APSO exams, can i get into an HR Generalist or Officer Role with an Honours degree in Social Science instead of an HR qualification? I would like to move out of agency recruitment and go into move in house recruitment. what are my chances?
Any thoughts any one ....
Thanks for the welcome. Like Natalie, I am fairly new to this kind of networking but I think it's THE WAY TO GO. I do find that women tend to be more receptiove to business networking. There is so much potential out there that joining forces and sharing knowledge benefits everyone.
We at options in training specialise in making our delegates feel warmly welcomed so that learning computers and business communication is fun - who says work has to be boring or dull?
I look forward to meeting lots of interesting people with Skills Universe.
