The latest Africa Print LIVE interview series features Ken Leid, Printing SA’s National Training and Development Director.
Printing SA, in partnership with The Fibre Processing and Manufacturing (FP&M) SETA and the Quality Council for Trade and Occupation (QCTO), recently hosted a free Qualification Scoping webinar, highlighting the training development processes as well as the training needs of the various sectors of the industry.
Leid outlines the poll outcome from the training webinar, indicating which areas people are most interested in, as well as the processes involved in the implementation of these areas, and other new training priorities Printing SA is still busy with.
‘The poll during the webinar came up with the top five qualifications that Printing SA, in partnership with the FP&M SETA, need to develop. The top occupation was the commercial digital printer; the printing and packaging sales representative came in second; third was the print cost estimator, and fourthly, in the flexible packaging industry you have the laminator and laminating, with roll label machine technician coming in fifth.’
