Overview

It stands to reason that the quality of skill application in our country is largely influenced by the quality of the training that is provided.

It is our intention, therefore, to ensure that the educating of training practitioners is of a very high standard.  Our passion for the training we have provided for the past 9 years has been noticed by our clients to the extent that almost all our training provided is as a result of word of mouth references.

This programme is therefore designed to provide practitioners with the capacity to enhance the quality of skills development substantially.  It provides a step upwards from the FET Certificate and an entry to the Diploma level.

Study School 1: Communication

The two fundamental unit standards lay the foundation for delegates in terms of reading and writing correctly.  Seeing that practitioners need to have a correct understanding of the OBET principles and have to communicate the legislative requirements to management and employees, it is imperative that they communicate accurately and professionally.  Learners will be given the opportunity to develop their written and oral communication skills while interacting with others.

Study School 2: Mentoring & Support

Learners will develop the skill to identify special needs and barriers to learning and how to support learners through the mentoring process to manage their learning experiences.  This includes giving advice on skills development and related issues while at the same time guide learners about their learning , assessment and recognition opportunities.

 

Study School 3: Assessment

Learners develop the skill to assess competence according to legislative requirements.  Learners conduct two assessments and complete their portfolios on the last day of the course.

 

Study School 4: Assessment Design

The assessment can only be as good as the assessment design.  Learners will, therefore, learn to analyse unit standards and to design, develop and pilot valid and reliable assessment instruments.

 

Study School 5: Instructional Design & Development

This course will help ETD practitioners to design learning programmes to meet defined learning needs, thus producing a brief for the development of the learning programmes.  And for ETD practitioners to develop learning programmes to meet defined learning needs according to a given design specification.

Study School 6: Facilitation

Learners will enhance their facilitation skills in the classroom as well as in the workplace where they will facilitate the transfer of learning in the workplace.  This will include the effective use of different training methodologies and the evaluating of the effectiveness of the training presented.

Study School 7: Training Needs Analysis & Evaluation

Training naturally starts where there is a skills gap.  Learners are given the opportunity to develop their competence in identifying performance gap sthrough statistical analysis and skills audits.  Learners are trained to assist new employees to transfer their knowledge into their new work environment.  Learners will also learn how to evaluate the effectiveness of training interventions.

Who should attend?

This qualification is for those who want to build on a FET certificate or who want to enter the field of ODETD as a potential career.  Learning Facilitators, Assessors and ETD Practitioners, in general, will benefit most from this training because of its flexibility and suitability in any business environment.
