Thanks Janelle – OK we have our 2020 Challenge – established
Have a good break.
Excellent news from Foodbev Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA). Our media is dominated by public service financial mismanagement. So hopefully this information provides a little counterbalance to the situation.
At the Foodbev SETA Annual General Meeting (AGM), held in Cape Town on 22 November, 2019 the Chief Executive Officer (CEO),…[Read more]

thanks for your post – good to hear from you.
I agree and understand everything that has been posted – but I ask myself – does the person/management – who needs to ask these questions – know about what they should be asking – and why.

That is all very interesting information.
In fact, when I was writing, I had in mind providers that are not in the system at all.
I think the most important information is for companies who are procuring the training – to know what the correct questions are. I can definitely say that not all companies know what to ask.
Maybe we…[Read more]

Thanks for that explanation.
I think just one additional comment is necessary:
If a training provider offers some form of training – that does not lead to qualifications or part qualifications, and is not accredited, and the provider does not make any such allegation, or misrepresentation – they can still provide that informal training.

There are certain essential elements of the EE Act that must be adhered to and that will be checked should your company be subject to an inspection by the department of Labour. Now is the time to ensure you have everything in order to ensure compliance and avoid the possibility of a compliance order and/or a heavy fine.
Section 16 and section 17…[Read more]

Brings back many memories of the hard times and the successes that follow perseverence and faith. Thank you for causing me to remember how blessed I have been and am. The moral of the story is don’t give up – have faith and trust in the Lord.

Thank you. That is so interesting.
But my first degree is from the UK. How do I get that onto the NLRD?
SAQA did give me the equivalence many moons ago.

What is your opinion?
Please see below a copy of the newsletter item distributed by the Presidency. It advises that for public service recruitment it has been decided that asking for verification of certificates to be under 3 months is excessively onerous.
The proposal is for a 6 month period (unless the certificate expires in that…[Read more]
A question for all the consultants and internal human resource people very busy inputting their EE Reports – and especially the amended EEA4.
When you calculate the differentials – average of top 10% against average of the bottom 10% – what is the difference?
How many times more is the top from the bottom?
Interested to get some input on where…[Read more]
Dawie, that is excellent, thank you for the detailed explanation.
I think it is necessary to print it out to take with when explaining to clients.
Now if I may, I have a further question – how does the schedule 2 of the NMW Act, which is called Learnership Allowances fit it?
Because under the Skills Development Act apprenticeships are…[Read more]
A few weeks ago I started to report on the B-BBEE Commission conference, which I attended in Cape Town. With many competing demands, I had not made much progress.
But the Commission has kept to their promise and the powerpoint presentations are now on the site. They are extremely informative slides and so I recommend that anyone involved in…[Read more]
Thanks Des, yes it seems I am not alone in not being able to explain.
I will follow up further.
I dont mean to be negative but the heading “finalising professional body” worries me. As a provider, assessor, moderator and verifier for the past twenty years I and many others like me feel it might have been a good ideas to involve us from the planning stage and not from the final stage as indicated. This could have been a great discussion point…[Read more]
For all the old (Legacy) qualifications go to http://www.saqa.org.za and check uner registered unit standards and qualifications. If you hit a problem let me know and I will talk you through it.
If a POE is to be submitted it would be submitted to a training provider for assessment and not to a specific SETA. Yes there are providers who accept electronic POEs depending on the Unit standard, skills programme or qualification being completed. Chartall for instance accepts POEs for certain qualifications (Also for RPL). POE’s however are not…[Read more]
How does one get onto the QCTO mailing list – unable to find anything on their web site.
Sorry, I cannot assist you Sylvia as I also cannot understand this. Perhaps Merseta (other SETA’s) or QCTO could explain.
Please assist me with this query that I have received.
There is a new QCTO qualification – fitting & turning.
It is trained via public TVETs.
When at a TVET the apprentices/trainees receive a R3500 stipend.
But if a private company appoints an apprentice, then they have to pay the Metal Industry Bargaining Council rates – which apparently are…[Read more]
