The second type of training is formal training which includes courses in Small Business Management, Communication in English, Information Management, Financial Management, Human Resource Management, Operational Management, Basic Waste Management and First Aid Level 1.

A sample outline of this course is as follows:

Management Principles for First Line Managers:

  • Module 1 : Introduction to Management and Management Functions (NQF level 5; 12 credits)
    • Self- management and the development of a personal growth plan.
    • An introduction to first-line management principles.
    • Planning and organising.
    • Leading and controlling.
  • Module 2: Introduction to Business Functions (NQF level 5; 12 credits)
    • Human Resource management.
    • Financial management.
    • Marketing management.
    • Basics of project management.

The main objective of the training is to ensure that, on completion of the training programmes, community contractors are equipped to handle general management of their businesses successfully. This enables them to outsource specialist functions such as administration, bookkeeping, budgeting, cash flow, tax, legal matters and so forth, as would be done by any other large company.

Other courses offered include Environmental Awareness Training, Training of the Communities, Staff Training in Safety & Work-Related Issues, and Entrepreneurial Training.

Tedcor also offers a course for SMEs in conjunction with Unisa. The Diploma in Small Business Management is pegged at NQF level 6 (equivalent to second year in a bachelor’s degree) and takes a minimum of 3 years to complete, with 360 course credits (the same as a 3-year degree).

Tedcor is also focused on offering needs-based education, and to this end, the company conducts a proper skills audit for each CBC and devises a course of study based on the outcome of the audit. That way, skills transfer is specifically pegged at meeting niched needs, with the aim of providing SMEs with useful knowledge that can help them achieve success in business.
