The purpose of this programme is to equip Skills Development Facilitators (SDF) with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to facilitate the skills development processes in the selected workplace(s) as prescribed in the Skills Development Act, 1998.
A strategic framework of organisations, legislation, regulations and policies has been established for this purpose. Within this framework, the key role of the SDF has been created. This person is usually an employee in a company/organisation. Specific skills are needed by the SDF to fulfill his/her designated role successfully.
Skills Development has become a necessary component on the BBBEE Score Card.
