Skills Development [Monday, March 08, 2010]

 

South Africa’s biggest and most valuable asset is our people.  Unfortunately we come from a history of not investing in untapped wealth.  The Skills Development Act of was written as a means of ensuring that companies start questioning their people development strategies and implementation. This was done through the skills development levies that most companies pay to their Seta (Sector education and training authority) and the skills development claim process.

Companies will receive a grant from this levy if they engage with the Seta processes - this includes the training plan, consultation and training report on a yearly basis. It's not as complicated as you may think....

Kaizen and Associates offers Skills Development services, ensuring compliance to legislation and SETA grant disbursement. The sensible integration of all your training inputs into one training and development plan ensures that people development strategies are integral to your company's overall business and transformation imperatives. We assist you in making business sense of the Skills Development act - in this way it becomes strategically meaningful and not just a paper-based exercise.

You can outsource all functions with regards to Skills Development to Kaizen and Associates or we can only assist you in completing your annual WSP&ART.

Training Development [Monday, March 08, 2010]

At Kaizen we commit ourselves to being the training industry leader in providing customer centric and value added training solutions for our clients using industry best practices that are NQF aligned and use outcomes-based education.  We focus on client specific requirements and outcomes.  Through our skilled developers and facilitators we are able to take ownership of our client’s training and learning requirements, ensuring we deliver measurable results.

Many businesses and training providers in the industry “train for the sake of training” and do not fully understand the intricacies of the environment or have actual working experience in the industry that allows maximum output from training interventions into the operation at a sustainable level.  Additionally many training providers do not offer outcomes-based education, which in our opinion, is the best and most efficient method to increase comprehension of the material which results in better retention and application of the learned material by the learner.  At Kaizen we customize training to maximize the results of the training to our customers.  The core team at Kaizen has a significant background in training, as well as extensive experience in managing large projects.
