Schoonspruit Secondary, a Focus School for the Arts

Schoonspruit Secondary, a Focus School for the Arts

Schoonspruit Secondary is one of ten general mainstream schools in the Western Cape that was transformed into a Focus School of the Arts in 2005. Situated in Malmesbury; SchoonSpruit is the only focus school for the arts in the West Coast Education District.

In 2016/2017 the Focus School project ended and as such, no additional funding was received, apart from the specified quantity to sustain the specific needs of the Creative Arts subjects.

Funding is extremely valuable to both the teachers and learners in their pursuit to execute the Creative Arts curriculum at the school.

The Subject Advisor at the West Coast Education District, Mr Deon Burger approached Omni HR Consulting (Pty) Ltd to secure a sponsorship for the school. The sponsorship would surround all the needs expressed by the teachers within the Dance, Design, Visual Arts, Drama and Music departments. The request was received in the form of a “priority list” to enable functionality and teaching of the subjects.  Additionally, a “wish list” was received, which noted items that would equip the students with the tools to effectively operate within their area of talent.

The request was presented to Megan Hultzer, the Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Omni HR Consulting (Pty) Ltd for evaluation. Hultzer says, “at Omni, one of our core philosophies is to make a difference in the communities we serve. Schoonspruit represents a community in which Omni was able to make an impactful difference. Students have shown commitment to apply themselves irrespective of the circumstances which surround them.” A flagship social theme for Omni HR Consulting (Pty) Ltd this year is to focus on initiatives impacting vulnerable women and children. Omni HR Consulting was able to support Schoonspruit with most of their supplies and requirements to effectively implement the curriculum.

A Visual Arts celebration was hosted on the 3rd August at the school to showcase Grade R-9 learners’ artwork. A variety of themes would be integrated into either 2-D or 3-D art pieces, such as: I am a South African artist too, Mirror Mirror, High Five, My Contribution, Behind the Mask, Water, #Iam. A total of twelve selected learners, from schools in the West Coast Education District including Schoonspruit, will take part in the Provincial Visual Arts exhibition, held in September at the P.J. Olivier Art Centre in Stellenbosch.

OMNI HR Consulting gets accredited with the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations

OMNI HR Consulting gets accredited with the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations

The core focus of Omni HR Consulting is to provide customers with innovative, relevant and industry-related training and development solutions, which will meet the skills development needs of their human capital and talent pipeline.

A development within the education landscape was the introduction of the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) in 2010 which presented the philosophy that classroom-based learning (theoretical and practical modules) in addition to occupational workplace-based learning would be a requirement to be certified within the QCTO framework. This naturally posed a divided view within industry as to the benefits and functionality of QCTO as a quality body in South Africa. Omni chose to be a part of the change in landscape as opposed to rejecting the changes.

The QCTO was established in line with the Skills Development Act with its role among others to assess and certify occupational qualifications, including trades, on the Occupational Qualifications Sub-Framework (OQSF).

An incredible feat for Omni HR Consulting was to receive full accreditation as a skills development provider with the QCTO on the 29th June 2018 as the first private provider to offer the following two qualifications: Occupational Certificate: Training and Development Practitioner (Learning and Development Practitioner), NQF Level 5 and Occupational Certificate: Sales Assistance (General Retail Sales Advisor), NQF Level 3.

Cindy Londt, Operations Executive, notes that “for Omni, work-integrated learning is a fundamental component applied within its current accredited qualifications. This component, along with our coaching and learning support model, assists learners in making meaning of their learning and how this applies to the world of work.” The QCTO relies on the methodology of work-integrated learning and as such requires business to partner with training providers to ensure those participating in occupational qualifications have the opportunity within a workplace to practically apply their knowledge and skills.

There are very clear benefits for both the workplace and the learners. Business will receive more skilled and relevant individuals that would transition easier into the world of work. “Often, we hear learners say they have studied and have a list of qualifications, however no work experience. What the QCTO qualification does, it forces the work-integrated learning component, and as a result, learners’ have 70% of their learning occur in the workplace. Fundamentally every learner not only walks away with a qualification but eight to twelve months of workplace experience” adds Londt.

OMNI will be hosting a series of webinars to share lessons learnt, our views and approach to work-integrated learning as a model that should be deployed to build talent pipelines and create sustainable employment. Please follow our social media pages for more details.
