HRDC calls for work skills planning

SELEBI-PHIKWE: The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) has strongly implored companies that send their workers for training to have a plan in place, failure of which will lead to unclaimed costs.

Speaking at a work-skills planning workshop here recently HRDC’s Workplace Support Services Manager, Kelesitse Maikaelelo said companies do not have proper training plans in place, but only send employees for training just to utilise the training levy.

“Before employees are sent for training there must be a plan submitted to the Council stating when the training should take place as well as expectations after training. You should not just train only to claim from the training fund,” he said. He added that with effect from April next year no company will be able to make a claim without a training plan. He added that they have observed that entities only train their employees without carrying out a work skills plan first. He noted that entities must train to enhance skills development not training with the aim of getting reimbursed.
