What are the next steps?
The Rockefeller Foundation has provided a group of South Africans with a grant to promote the Toolkit. The purpose of the grant is to expand the awareness and uptake of DDT practices to other organisations. These organisations include:
- Other DDT providers, non-profits and other organisations who are involved in initiatives to make young people more work ready
- Employers, government projects trying to create sustainable employment opportunities
- Sector education and training authorities (SETA)
- Professional bodies
- Youth development organisations and funders
- Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges
- Private training providers.
Who is this promotion team?
The promotion team consists of:
- IQbusiness, led by David Nel
- Mike Stuart of Skills Handbook
- Christoph Vorwerk of Xasa Facilitating
- Liz Moore of the Focus Consulting Group
- Sonja Blignaut of More Beyond – she is the local agent of Sensemaker the software which applies the Cynefin Framework to collect and make sense of data in complex environments.
Purpose of the toolkit
The purpose of the toolkit is to enable role players to analyse where they are in relation to the range of DDT reuirements and then to ascertain what would enhance and amplify their efforts.
To scale up practices which are currently restricted to many small initiatives is going to prove a challenge.
But at the end of the day we need to do this to secure our own future. If we don’t get it right we are going to have another 1976 uprising.
