                                                             Training Approach

 

 We have required the necessary skill to train and develop corporate and government`s department `s job performers /officers.

 This we achieve by using vehicle of the In Service Training, Competency Based Training / Outcome Based Training and Driven Courses

 or Lecture Hall Training Activities, Seminars and Workshops. We have also formed a working strategy that enables us to

take our services to the people. This plan will cater for the provision of over – the shoulder training and mobile training.

We think of skills development as a continuous process. The emphasis is placed on entrepreneurial skills that would enable trainees

 move beyond requiring work to creating it for others. Our plans include the employed, students, unemployed, youth, retrenches,

 and the previously disadvantaged.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Afri-Quest believes that training and education is an expression of both business and government strategy and a tool to address performance difficulties. Both our training and education have vision of addressing social development and seek redress past ills. Our skill and knowledge imparting efforts will be based on needs analysis reports and results. Finally, it could not have escaped our mind that the descriptive assessment processesneed to be monitored and learning verified. We have therefore employed a continuous assessment method as a vehicle of successful

learnership and skill development programmes.

Training Methodology

 

After analyzing the specific needs of a candidate or group of candidates scheduled to attend a planned learning intervention,

we review all materials used in the programme to make sure they will meet those needs. If the existing material will not meet the need of a specific group, we modify or prepare new materials. The latter should cater for the learned, literate, and illiterate people and are revised and improved on a regular basis.

We also discuss progress and give feedback to relevant parties within the organization .Incidents report, class register update, competency statements, work progress, and other training reports form part of our learning intervention programme. In addition, our lesson plans and work scheme books can be made available on request.

South African Sign Language (SASL)

 

The deaf community is a part of our daily lives they reside in the same areas as we do they use the same mode of transport as we

 do this may include but not limited to Taxi Bus Train Air Plane etc. They also make use or need services from their local municipality,

provincial departments and national government.  Public sector is faced with and recognizes the unique opportunity to train their employees

and equip them with the ability to sign or make use of the South African Sign Language as interpreters. We believe that the market is in its

growth period whereby personnel development is becoming key, but also aligning oneself with social issues affecting your organization directly

 or indirectly at this stage and that we are uniquely positioned to successfully implement this program with the key focus of making the services

 of the public sector Deaf community friendly.
