A LOOK AT SKILLS DEVELOPMENT IN SOUTH AFRICA

Skills Development is the key to South Africa's economic future. While no one will argue that tertiary education is unimportant, it is important to incorporate real experience through Skills Development to ensure that potential employees can do more than learn something out of a book; they must actually be able to perform the tasks at hand.

The South African National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) entered phase three in 2011 and will remain in this phase until 2016. The current emphasis of the strategy is that of institutional learning combined with occupationally directed programmes; thus ensuring that employees have the necessary skills to fulfil the requirements of their job descriptions effectively.

It is essential that a focus is placed on a better use of workplace skills programmes, while worker-initiated training initiatives are greatly encouraged.

MEET THE FACILITATORS
 

IPD is blessed with many passionate and qualified facilitators such as Dr Fanie Von Solms, Daan Kemp, Dirk Lotriet, Jane Vaughton, Allen Mc Intyre, Wendy McNally and Michael van der Schyff, to name a few.

The faciliators are all highly qualified and hold various degrees, including; a MA National Strategy, SA Army Command and Staff, Masters in Human Resource Development, a professional degree in Radiography, OD ETD NQF 6 Certificates, National Diplomas in OD ETD NQF 5, a National Certificate in Business Management (Marketing) NQF 5 and a National Certificate in Business Management (Marketing) NQF 6.

As passionate educators, the facilitators enjoy working with IPD because the position enables them to work with people while adding value to their lives, it allows for much personal growth, it enables them to share their academic knowledge, they are given the opportunity to enable others to achieve recognition for their skills and knowledge, they watch people grow daily and because it gives them the opportunity to witness that moment when a learner first grasps a concept.
