Training Provider’s Mentoring Programme

Training Provider’s Mentoring Programme

Having left the safety of permanent employment or facilitating training for another company, many new Skills Development Providers decide to take the plunge and go it alone.

They register their own new training company and, if truly serious about their business, embark on the accreditation journey.

Once accreditation is awarded (and sometimes before then) they sit back, take a breath and realise that they may have skipped a few steps and are overwhelmed with questions.

Our vision is to Capacity Build Training Providers and it is with that in mind that we are launching the JTandA Training Provider’s 3-month Mentoring Programme.

Topics which will be covered

How to find clients who need training
Helping your clients design their Training Needs Analysis and job role competencies.

How to apply for SETA Grants
Helping your clients apply for the various grants – understanding what must be done and how to do it.

How to cost your training correctly
A look at the hidden costs that no one thinks about.
