Supervisor Development Programme - 1 contact day per month - customised

The traditional SDP has a total of 12 days, which includes an orientation day. It is delivered over a period of one year, with a 1-day workshop per month running in the quieter period of the month or on a Saturday.

This has been successfully implemented especially in medium to smaller companies who cannot afford to have learners out of the workplace due to do production for long periods. This can be customised to your needs and you can also select which workshops you want covered or not, leading to less contact days.
