Absa Launches Theta Workshops
Absa has recognised the major need for the players in the franchising industry and the various SETAs to work together more closely. As an industry Absa believes that franchising can become an even greater contributor to national economic imperatives such as the Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative, and job creation, etc.
To kick off this process Absa have approached the Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Education and Training Authority (THETA) to jointly host a workshop. It’s hoped that this workshop will be the start of creating an environment for the various parties to work together more closely and for members of the franchise industry to benefit more.
There are a number of opportunities which franchisors and training providers can offer to the THETA in helping achieve their objectives. Franchisees too can benefit by formalizing a lot of the training that is currently being conducted informally in the workplace. Likewise THETA can be of great assistance in getting new learnerships and skills programs registered.
More detail on the results of the THETA workshop will follow soon in the Franchise Grapevine. For details on participation in these workshops, call Christo Weideman at Absa on (011) 350 5704
