After 18 years in skills development, this has been the most chaotic ATR WSP PIVOTAL report and plan submission season. In learning mode, I have developed a draft letter for submission to DHET and Minister Pandor containing what I believe are constructive suggestions to avoid a repeat of the experience next year.
I would appreciate your suggestions for inclusion under the following headings:
- submission date for ATR WSP PIVOTAL reports and plans
- software systems used for ATR WSP PIVOTAL reports
- ICT online training (e.g. webinars) on reporting systems
- request for extension submission requirements
- inter-seta transfers
- B-BBEE scorecard correlation with SETA registration
The final comment will be a request that no reports are rejected for late submission if the SDF has evidence of attempts to submit within due date.
Now I don't want a lot of complaints - we all know what the problems are, and some SDFs are still battling to submit - I'm looking for constructive suggestions, just click Reply.
I will be publishing the draft suggestions, and submitting to associations for comment and contributions. If you have suggestions on where to send for comment, please provide email details.
I have been informed that some SDFs are reluctant to publish on a public forum for fear of being discriminated against by SETA staff (although this is not a criticism of SETA staff), but if you are concerned then please send directly to me at email@example.com
Looking forward to your constructive suggestions.
