ONLINE SEMINAR DESCRIPTION

The career development of many artisans in South Africa is neglected and artisans are often destitute:

  1. They find themselves working in the same positions for years with little salary increases year-on-year.
  2. They find themselves with undefined and unclear career paths.
  3. They do not have professional development plans which define the actions that will be taken to achieve their career path.
  4. They do not have career coaches and mentors who can guide them in achieving their career goals.
  5. They are not prioritized when it comes to management development programmes.
  6. They do not qualify for engineering management programmes.
  7. They get few opportunities to develop skills that will propel them to management.

The purpose of the 'Artisan to manager accelerator' online seminar is to provide artisans with information on the initial steps they need to advance their careers from artisan to manager.

The online seminar seeks to answer the following questions artisans face:

  1. What are the different career paths that I can follow as an artisan?
  2. How do I decide which career path I should follow?
  3. How do I design a professional development plan that will help me achieve my career path?
  4. What are the common mental barriers that are limiting the progress of many artisans?
  5. What are the common skills deficiencies that are limiting the progress of many artisans?
  6. Why many artisans never make it past the CV evaluation and interview stage of recruitment processes for supervisor/management positions?
  7. Why many artisans never make it to the supervisor level?
  8. Why many artisans never make it to the management level?
  9. Why many artisans with the GCC never make it to the management level (GMR 2.1 or 2.13.1 appointment)?
