Why Trainers and Assessors?

Employers and Training Providers are more likely to contact people who are capable of training and assessing their learners, rather than contracting two different individuals to perform this task.

4. HOW TO NETWORK AND GET THAT PERFECT (FREELANCE) JOB

Here is some networking tips!

    Make sure you have all the required ETDP Certificates, ETDP Statement of Results and a detailed Personal Portfolio with all your previous education and workplace experience. Best practice is to have this ready in PDF format to submit electronically if needed.
    Register with all the related SETAs as an Assessor with at least one unit standard where possible. It’s so much easier to request extension of scope than submitting an entire new application.
    Subscribe to all possible Education newsletters including our free service on http://www.trainingnews.co.za.
    Subscribe to the SETA newsletters and make sure you attend their annual stakeholders meetings which are open to anyone to attend. These are perfect opportunities for you to meet new Training Providers and Employer to get connected to new projects and JOB opportunities.
