Notional Hours consist out of (a) Theory and (b) Practical = Notional Hours.

In order to achieve the “practical” hours, the learner needs to demonstrate how he achieved this, (mostly in the workplace) by means of evidence. (Logbook).

Logbook can be in any form that can provide evidence that the learner (a) had the opportunity to practice the tasks in the workplace and (b) ensure that the minimum notional hours was completed.

SDF in South Africa

imagesAll Companies/Organizations that have a wage bill (inclusive directors drawings) in excess of R500 000 per annum, must pay 1% of this wage bill as a training Levy (SDL). In order to get some of this money back, they need to have an qualified SDF – Skills Development Facilitator (either internal or external) to advice/assist them with various processes.

What is the purpose of a Workplace Skills Plan (WSP)? 

The Workplace Skills Plan serves to structure the type and amount of training for the year ahead, and is based on the skills needs of the organisation. A good WSP should consider current and future needs, taking into account gaps identified through a skills audit, the performance management system, succession planning initiatives, and any new process or technology changes planned for the year.

By when is the levy payable?

The levy must be paid to SARS not later than SEVEN days after the end of the month in respect of which the levy is payable, under cover of a SDL 201 return form.

The functions of a Skills Development Facilitator

  • Assist the employer and employees to develop a Workplace Skills Plan (WSP).
  • Submit the Workplace Skills Plan (WSP) to the relevant Seta.
  • Advise on the implementation of the Workplace Skills Plan.
  • Assist to draft an Annual Training Report (ATR) on the implementation of the Workplace Skills Plan.
  • Advice on the quality assurance requirements set by the Seta.
  • Act as a contact person between you and the Seta.
  • Serve as a resource for all aspects of skills development.

Companies/Organisations can either train their own internal person to become the represented SDF or contact any of our Top Students/Facilitators or Agents.

We at MYSDF offer a free service where we create the opportunities for Companies / Organisations to get in contact directly with these qualified staff with no hidden cost. Simply another way that we support our learners and members of the group

 

What is Facilitation

GUIDELINES TO FACILITATION

The facilitator is responsible for managing meetings, keeping conversations on track, and ensuring each member’s voice is heard. This tip sheet gives some tips for how to accomplish these tasks.

What is Facilitation?

To facilitate is “to make easier” or “help bring about.”. Thus, facilitation in the context of communities of practice is to help smoothly manage the flow and discussions of
a meeting or event. The facilitator guides the dialogue and attempts to maximize member’s time and energy by keeping the event and discussions on track – in terms of time and topic. By taking a group through a process that produces a specific outcome (learning, decision-making, problem-solving, etc.), facilitation generally encourages all members to participate in some way, shape or form. By recognizing and utilizing the unique and valuable contributions of each member, an effective facilitator increases the collective value of the entire community. By mediating the group process, the facilitator plays an active and critical role in ensuring that a community taps deeply into its own knowledge.

What Makes a Good Facilitator?

Competent facilitators have both personal characteristics and acquired skills that make them good at what they do. Many good facilitators make a difficult process seem very natural and intuitive, even when lots of planning and training goes into the craft. We’ve listed some key characteristics here and they are explained in additional detail in the “Advanced Facilitator’s Guide.” Chances are, if you’ve volunteered to take on this role, you have these traits or you have an inclination toward them.

• Good facilitators value people and their ideas
• Good facilitators think quickly and logically
• Good facilitators are excellent communicators
• Good facilitators are both product and process oriented

What are the Facilitator’s Basic Responsibilities?

As a facilitator, you will want to take some basic steps as part of your responsibilities during a meeting or event. The basics are listed below.

• Prepare in Advance.
Good facilitators make their work look effortless and natural, but prepare in advance to be effective. Take into consideration the “who, what, why, and where” of your meeting or event to help you figure out the “how.”
• Plan and Distribute the Agenda.
The meeting agenda is the document that defines what will be done at any particular meeting or event, and it helps both leaders and participants know what to expect and how to prepare. Working with the coordinator and the subject matter expert should get you on the right track for the content of the agenda.
• State your objectives at the beginning of the event.
Members will be much better prepared to contribute and help you meet the objectives if they know what they are.
• Establish Community Expectations.
These ground rules help participants establish appropriate ways to interact with each other during the meeting or event. In a nutshell, you want the group to agree to a respectful, collaborative process. By stating the rules up front and getting agreement from the group, you’re more likely to see that happen.
• Guide the group in presenting and sharing information.
Your methodology may vary, but the methods you use should include all members in the discussion and prevent one or two members from dominating the dialogue. Everyone may not talk, but no one should feel excluded from the process.
• Provide closure and reiterate action items.
As part of ensuring that all ideas and points are captured accurately, it is also the role of the facilitator to ensure that action items are noted and that follow-up on the item is assigned to someone.

What Do I Do? Some Trouble-Shooting Tips

As a facilitator, you may be required to intervene to keep the event on track and obtain optimal productivity. Listed below are some tips for intervening in particular circumstances.

Staying on-task and on-time.

Your community may have a lot to get accomplished in a short amount of time. With groups of passionate and knowledgeable people, it is easy to veer off onto other topics or easily get side-tracked by minute details of a conversation. In order to help the group stay focused, you may want to:

o Remind the group of the “keep focused” expectation
o Don’t be afraid to directly re-focus the group on a particular agenda item
o Try to close the item or set it aside in a “parking lot” for consideration later
o Let the community decide

Dealing with unproductive behaviour.

Difficult behaviour is often unintentional or occurs as the result of an emotionally charged situation. You might be dealing with inattentive members who are engaging in side-bar conversations, taking calls or indiscreetly dealing with e-mail. You might also be dealing with personal agendas or disrespectful behaviour. Progressive intervention will most often assist you in dealing with behaviour that does not help the community achieve its meeting goals or objectives.

• Use gentle and appropriate humour for redirection
• Restate the ground rules directly
• Direct your questions to the individual for clarification
• Seek help from the group
• Address the issue at a break or offline

Stimulating productive inquiry.

While passionate people often have a lot to say and suggestions for action, it is not uncommon for communities to experience lulls in an on-going conversation or a stand-still in a single event. You might want to use the following techniques to keep the conversation going.

• Use probing questions
• Invite the experts to speak up
• Call on individuals in the group
• Invite debate
