- We assess to determine skills knowledge and not qualifications
We assess individuals in order to determine their knowledge with regard to reading, writing and mathematical abilities. These assessments allow us to tailor a solution best suited to their needs, to ensure that they receive the most benefit out of training. It is vitally important to have placement assessments done before booking employees for any particular training programme. An accurate appraisal will ensure that each employee is presented with material that they can understand. This material should ideally pick up from where they left off in terms of previous education. Many organisations embark on training for the sake of compliance with the skills development element of the B-BBEE scorecard. This often results in failed attempts at employee development because employees are randomly chosen for the training project. Conducting a placement assessment is, therefore, an important step in the skills development process. At Triple E Training we make sure that your employees actually need training, and which level of training bests suits the individual before we embark on a training programme.
The Placement AssessmentAssessments are done onsite (at your company) and at a time that will not interfere with efficiency. This means that when your employees are being assessed, your operations will not be overly disrupted. Our placement assessment determines the current skills and abilities of the employees and allows them to be placed on the correct AET level within the General Education and Training (GET) band. It is a pen and paper assessment. The results indicate the pace at which the employee can be expected to learn. Below are two examples of individual performance graphs drawn up from the results of the placement assessment.
The first employee scored a placement equivalent to AET 1 Communication in English, whilst the second candidate achieved AET level 2. Both candidates scored an AET level 1 in Numeracy. The unique nature of our adult education and training system means that both candidates, plus any others who were simultaneously assessed, will attend AET lessons in the same programme. However, the facilitator who has copies of their performance graphs will train each candidate at their individual level.

FLC (Foundational Learning Competence)Foundational Learning refers to the competence needed in the low key areas of Communication and Mathematical Literacy in order to deal successfully with any training at NQF Levels 2-4. It is a part qualification registered at NQF Level 2, SAQA 88895, and carries 40 credits in total. Each learning area carries 20 credits. The focus in Foundational Communication is on developing reading, writing, speaking and listening skills that will enable the employee to function optimally in the workplace, to enable the employee to deal with further training, and to access materials and related assessments. The focus in Foundational Mathematical Literacy is on using, and responding to, mathematical ideas and applications in all content and the application of knowledge at different levels of complexity.
FLC is aimed at employees registered on the NQF at level 2, 3 and 4. It is a compulsory component for all new qualifications developed by the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) at NQF levels 3 and 4.

REALLLThis peculiar acronym aptly describes the needs of a prospective employee who may need accelerated development and training.
REALLL Training is for LifeREALLL summarises the policy adopted by Triple E Training in the design of its many AET and vocational programmes. There are times when basic training may be needed to speedily improve an employee’s level of competence; the rapid nature of REALLL training is ideal for this purpose. The use of carefully aligned, streamlined content allows employees to progress more rapidly than is the case with other learning programmes. Effectiveness is achieved using the system of unit standards-based education. The accelerated training rate that is achieved under the REALLL programme is due to the careful integration of training material that helps employees to progress steadily.
Encourages Further GrowthProviders of REALLL training programmes can justifiably claim that this type of programme leads to a life-long culture of learning in those who are exposed to it. This is borne out by the large number of employees who, having first completed one or more basic programmes, then go on to pursue further training at higher and further education levels. The modular format encourages employees to explore further and has resulted in many of them gaining access to Higher Education and Training (HET). In summary, REALLL training programmes are proving to play a strong, positive role in changing lives. Employees who may begin with the simplest of adult education and training (AET) are rapidly empowered to assume a more productive role. REALLL training helps to improve performance in the workplace and improves the productivity of companies that support this form of training.

LearnershipsAccording to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) a learnership is a work based training programme that leads to an NQF registered qualification. Learnerships are directly related to an occupation or field of work.
How does a Learnership work?The Employee is required to complete a theoretical programme and practical training at the workplace in order to graduate. Unemployed adults can also take part in a learnership if the company is willing to take them on; this is called a sponsored learnership. The theoretical part of the training is provided by an accredited training service provider, while the practical learning takes place at the workplace under the guidance of a mentor.
Learnerships last for the duration of the time to complete the qualification. During the learnership, employees will be required to complete assignments, tasks and practical tests and projects. They will be formally assessed. If all these assignments are completed successfully, the employee will be awarded an NQF-registered qualification that is recognised nationally.
What are the benefits of Learnerships?Through learnerships, government promotes access to education and training because the learnership allows the employee to get started on a career while studying for an educational qualification. By embarking on a learnership programme your company therefore contributes to the economic empowerment of individuals, and the economic development of the country. Five Benefits of Learnerships
- Basic qualifications for employees
- Skilled, experienced workers who need less supervision
- Improved productivity
- Identify and solve shortcomings in your business
- Educate and empower employees; creating a happy workforce
