Public Sector Skills Development and Training

Nationwide Onsite Mentoring, Facilitation and Workshops
Kgolo Institute is a LGSETA- and PSETA- accredited training service provider offering certified NQF Level 01–07 National Diploma, National Certificate, Further Education and Training Certificate as well as Certified Learning Programmes. We also provide custom ETQA-based skills programmes and short courses and well as team building and workshop facilitation.

We are a 100% accredited centre for the Recognition of Prior Learning and we have 25 full-time registered and accredited assessors and 6 full-time registered and accredited moderators on staff. This gives us the capacity to assess and moderate over 200 Portfolios of Evidence per week, ensuring that both learners and employers experience the least amount of disruption possible.

Through our accreditations with LGSETA and PSETA we are able to offer you over 32 different Learnership Programmes, each with their own unit standards that can be combined to deliver custom credit bearing Skills Programmes. We are currently the leading service provider in the delivery of the Municipal Finance Management Programme (MFMP) (in all its variations) throughout South Africa. By the end of 2016, we had successfully graduated more than 3000 learners n this programme.

One of the challenges facing capacity building and skills development in the workplace is the interruption of workday routines. Our approach of delivering the training at your premises, or as close to as possible, minimises this disruption. Our workplace monitoring assistance ensures that learners meet all the requirements for completing their institutional (workplace) training. With our vast selection of unit standards we can put skills development and capacity building into context. This means that we can train the right unit standard for the right environment. We will train only in those unit standards that are beneficial to the learners and their requirements.

Kgolo Institutes’s accelerated facilitation and training techniques allow us to instruct learners in up to five unit standards in a 5-day period, whilst still maintaining the highest level of quality and professional ethics. The average class size is between 15 and 25 learners and classes of more than 40 participants are facilitated using mentors, together with the facilitator, thus ensuring that each learner is given the proper attention he/she deserves. Our facilitation encourages a participative approach making learning fun and speeding up experiential training as well as obtaining the highest levels of PoE submissions per class.

Our project managers inspect provided venues to ensure that they meet the requirements for conducive and educational learning as well as adhering to legislative health and safety regulations. In instances where Kgolo Institute is asked to source venues, labs or special facilities and materials, we try to work with the geographically closest possible providers and facilities so that we minimise costs to our clients and learners.

Our facilitation programme ensures that learners will know how to prepare and submit their Portfolios of Evidence so that learners and employers can be assured of certification in their chosen short course, skills programme or unit standard.

We, at Kgolo Institute, look forward to helping you with your skills development and capacity building needs and are eager to assist you with any queries. Please contact us should you need any further assistance.
