Thank you so much for your detailed response. I am sorry that you were not able to comply with the requirement for financial reasons.
But that gives me a response – surely this is what we need to bring to the Minister’s attention.
It cannot just be a once-off training opportunity from HWSETA – young people are coming up. So what…[Read more]

Accelerating innovation to achieve the
17 Sustainable Development Goals SDGs, by the deadline: 2030.

Thanks for posting your question as a new discussion.
After following skills development from 2000, I must say one of the most confusing areas is the requirements for accreditation of health-related qualifications and part qualifications, such as First Aid.
Given how important the area is to worker health and safety, this is highly…[Read more]
Hi Rudy, thanks for your response. Your question about skills needs is definitely the topic for a further discussion. I will table that for next week.
“In the year 2020, we will be implementing a new SETA landscape to further respond to the skill demands of our economy. We will ensure that we strengthen, realign and repurpose SETAs so that they respond to the skills needs of our economy” (page 3).
The success of the work of all skills-universe members, in various ways – relies upon the funct…[Read more]

We have many new members – so this might be useful advice.
Are you switching between access using your computer or laptop, and using your cell phone on the move?
Do you battle to find your place on the cell phone – it doesn’t look the same as when you access via your computer?
That’s because there is a special format for cell phones, but…[Read more]

Yes – that is my concern & in that case I personally believe that would be a contravention of our constitutional right to fair administrative action under PAJA.
Thank you for your help Wilma.
I will copy directly to her mail address to make sure she sees your response.

Thanks for posting your question.
As it seems to reflect poorly upon APPETD, I am sure that they would want to intervene –
the CEO is Cynthia Reynders and her email address is email@example.com

Hi Bernie, yes I agree with you.
I sat here last night thinking to myself – did the Labour Appeal Court really not understand the implications of what it was doing?

Yesterday Louis Nel posted a discussion in the Concerned Providers group – you can see on this link –
Louis alerted members to the Circular 1 of 2020 issued by the Director General of DHET Gwebs Qonde – attached.
The circular indicates that as a result of the legal action through the labour courts, that Regulation 4 (4) has…[Read more]

Thank you for posting this notice. Yes it does have profound implications – one springs to mind:
– the potential for chaotic differences across SETAs, which may possibly represent contravention of our constitutional right for fair administrative action – under the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act – PAJA.
I am sure that we will…[Read more]
Lol Thys – as Lizeth says we have all lost out on our family fortunes.
Thanks to our tech expert who has deleted & blocked the user.
So I’m afraid we will all just have to go back to work to make our fortunes 😉
Apologies to all skills-universe members
today I accepted someone with the name of Fortune Edric – I did think twice, because I was suspicious, but I gave him a chance – bad decision.
Thanks to Tass Schwab who is always the one up front who alerts me – thanks Tass.
Please delete anything that you receive from Fortune who is probably looking to…[Read more]
Thanks for re-posting.
I wonder whether it would be a good idea to approach the professional body – Association for Skills Development of South Africa (ASDSA) – directly.
Please click on edit and enter a bit more information about your daughter – what age is she?
What grade has she achieved?
What subjects is she more interested in?
What give her most difficulty?
I think to will help members to advise you.

As skills-universe members will know – I am very concerned that we refer to things correctly – like bogus colleges.
Today at his media briefing, Minister Blade Nzimande made a very interesting point – clarifying his title and departmental responsibilities.
So, Dr Blade Nzimande is the Minister of Higher Education Science and Technology,
