Provisional Skill Development Forum – Gauteng report


Dear Colleagues

As you are aware APPETD is represented on, inter alia, the PSDF – Gauteng where we look after the interest of private providers.

I attended the workshop held on the 17th April 2015 and was motivated by the interesting discussion around skill development and the various platforms of access thereto. The need to utilise the service of private providers  for an ever increasing demand of skills that will ensure employability was  mentioned on more than one occasion and hence our role is becoming much more important in delivering  QUALITY EDUCATION AND TRAINING that is MEASURABLE  by means of the THROUGHPUT RATE  and the final mark of distinction is the EMPLOYABILITY of the graduate. Please find attached the workshop report.
