Human Resource Management is becoming an increasingly popular career choice. One of the reasons why HR Management is so appealing is that the skills that you learn can be applied across various industries. In other words, an HR Management qualification can open up many doors for you.

What does Human Resource Management involve?

Human Resource (HR) Management involves hiring and training employees, and making sure that staff is motivated at all times.

One of the main reasons that companies need an HR team is to ensure productivity in the workplace.

HR Managers are responsible for retaining the most capable and skilled employees, so that the company can function effectively and be profitable.

What are the duties of HR Managers?

HR Managers:

  • Delegate and monitor duties.
  • Regulate levels of productivity.
  • Co-ordinate different tasks to ensure that the end goal is achieved.
  • Analyse and implement strategies to increase the efficiency of a company or organisation.
  • Determine the overall success of a company by interpreting outputs at a basic level.

Why is HR Management a good career choice?

Businesses aim for maximum success. In order to achieve this, they rely on skilled, efficient, reliable and motivated employees. HR Managers ensure that such employees are retained.

Because the corporate world is growing at a phenomenal rate, increasingly more qualified Human Resource Managers are needed.

An HR Management course will equip you with the right set of skills to be able to help an organisation stay successful.

Having a Human Resource management qualification behind your name will make you a valuable asset for any company!

Where do you come from?

“When our first democratically-elected government decided to make Heritage Day one of our national days, we did so because we knew that our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help build our new nation.”

– Nelson Mandela

Tomorrow, 24 September, we will be celebrating Heritage Day. It is a day to celebrate and honour your heritage – and the rich heritage of our awesome country, South Africa.

Do you know your heritage?

Your heritage is a big part of your identity – it is made up of all the traditions and customs that were passed on to you from your parents. For example, maybe you have a Zulu mother and a Xhosa father – in which case your heritage will be made up of both Zulu and Xhosa practices and traditions.

If you don’t know much about your family’s history, do yourself a favour and find out more about it – in the spirit of Heritage Day. Your heritage is something to be proud of! And you may be surprised at what you find out.

Did you know, Heritage Day, Fun Fact, South Africa, IFP, King Shaka

What all South Africans have in common, is a South African heritage. Despite our past, I am certainly proud to have this heritage.

We are a nation of diversity – a “rainbow nation“, as Mr Nelson Mandela called it. We are a nation of diverse cultures, races, traditions, and languages – but despite our differences, we are still all South Africans, and the country belongs to us all.

This is what tomorrow should be all about – celebrating our individual heritage, well at the same time acknowledging and honouring our shared heritage.

So don’t just see tomorrow as a day off work – honour your heritage, acknowledge the heritage of those around you, and most importantly, we should celebrate our heritage as united South Africans.

College SA wishes all of our readers a very happy Heritage Day!

The Best is Yet to Come

“There are far better things ahead than what we leave behind.” – C.S. Lewis

Today my blog post is inspired by the song Let it Go from the Disney movie Frozen. First of all, if you have not seen the movie, do yourself a favour – rent the movie and watch it!

It may be a Disney movie, but it has universal themes of self-acceptance and letting go of what may not be. It is something that is applicable to anyone, no matter your age. If you cannot watch the movie, at least listen to the theme song:

Letting go is hard for all of us. We are constantly burdened by what we cling to. It may be something that happened in our past, so we cling to the memory and are continuously punished by it.

There are so many things that burden each and every one of us. It can be something as simple as giving yourself a hard time because you ate a chocolate while on a strict diet, or something as serious as divorce, loss of a loved one, eviction, or failing to complete your studies.

Whatever it is that is weighing on your shoulders, it is unnecessary to punish yourself mentally or emotionally for something that cannot be undone. It already happened and no amount of worrying will change that.

We spend so much time wishing things were different, or pondering on those inevitable “what if” questions. But we poison our thoughts by doing this. We should rather learn to accept certain things and just let go.

Let Go, Letting go, prosper, College SA

To let go takes courage. It is not giving up, but rather moving on. Let go of your pain, let go of your guilt, let go of stress, let go of criticism, and let go of the past…

Somebody told me the other day that I will never again be as young as I am today. How true is that? Today, each of us are the youngest that we will ever be. Whatever situation you are in or whatever you have been through, you have time to evolve, to dream, to succeed, and to excel.

And what lies before us might be far greater than what we could ever have imagined.

Take a step towards your future that holds possibilities of success, love, happiness and self-acceptance. For it is only by acceptance that we move on. You are still young, no matter your age. The best is yet to come!

7 Quotes to Inspire Success

Let’s face it – we all want to be successful. Sometimes we just need a bit of inspiration to get us to where we want to be.

Here are 7 quotes about success that will inspire you to reach new heights, and achieve more than you ever thought was possible. Let’s start off the weekend on a positive note. Remember – you can do ANYTHING that you put your mind to!


  1. “The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself” – Mark Caine

This quote is about wanting more for your life. Don’t simply accept the life that you were given – we are free to change it at any time. You may live in a poverty-stricken area that is rife with crime. But are you stuck there? No! You can improve your life. Study, get a good job, and refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you find yourself.


  1. “If you want to SUCCEED as bad as you want to BREATHE, then you will be SUCCESSFUL” – Eric Thomas

How badly do you want to be successful? If you really want something – so much so that you are willing to fight for it and work consistently hard for it – then you are sure to get it!


  1. “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up” – Thomas Edison

Don’t give up! The most successful people got to where they are because they persisted. You are so very close to seeing your dreams come true – so keep at it!


  1. “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts” – Winston Churchill

Whether you succeed or fail in your endeavours – keep working hard. You can’t simply sit back and do nothing once you have reached your goals. You need to make sure that you don’t lose what you have achieved – otherwise what was the point in all of your hard work?


  1. “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm” – Winston Churchill

Some people fail over and over again before they eventually succeed. The secret is to not let these failures get the better of you. You need to remain positive, and never lose hope. Believe in yourself and believe in your dreams – you will get there!


  1. “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things” – Leonardo da Vinci

It is very tempting to take the easy way out of situations. We want to be successful, but sometimes we are not willing to work hard to get it. Success is not something that can just fall into your lap. We need to decide what we want from life, and MAKE IT HAPPEN!


  1. “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will” – Vince Lombardi

Successful people are not stronger than us, nor are they smarter than us. So what then sets them apart? How do they become successful? It is quite simple really – they have a WILL to succeed. They WANT to succeed, and so they will! Be determined to reach your goals, and you will.


Students of College SA, we believe in you! Now you just need to believe in yourself. Go out there and show the world what you are made of!

No one else can play your part

“Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create that fact.”  – William James

Today, the 10th of September, is World Suicide Prevention Day.

Suicide is a topic that we as a society usually shy away from, but I feel that we should rather address it.

Since 2003, the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) work in partnership with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health to plan an international campaign for suicide awareness and prevention.

So often we ignore people who are sad or depressed. A lot of the time we only do that because we do not understand it. But from all the different ways that people die, suicide is the only one that is 100% preventable. For me, this is what this day is all about.

While I was researching, I found another campaign from TWLOHA (To Write Love on Her Arms) that has a universal message – “No one else can play your part”. This slogan really stirred some emotion in me.

suicide prevention, beating depression, no one else can play your part, College SA

We should not shun people because they are a little different from us. We should rather include them in our lives and share our happiness or hope with them. Kindness goes a long way and I do not think we comprehend just how much even the slightest bit of humanity towards someone can affect and alter their lives.

“Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of this world.”

– Marianne Williamson

The quote from Marianne Williamson ties in with the “No one else can play your part” campaign. There will come a day that you may be confronted with a situation where you can make a positive impact on someone’s life. Don’t hesitate. You could save another human being’s life by doing or saying something that may seem so ordinary to you.

Whether you are the person who always smiles, or you are the person who never stops crying – you are valuable! You are good enough for this world, and your life is precious. You have your own part to play in this life and no one else can be who you are supposed to be.

If you are going through a rough time, or cannot remember the last time you felt happy or safe – just remember that your struggle will become your strength, and your story will have the power to change lives. You are worthy, you are loved and you are beautiful…

All over the world at 8pm tonight, people will light a candle and place it in their window to show support for those people who are fighting depression, and to remember and honour those who we have lost as a result of depression.

Students of College SA, let us light our candles and continue to share our humanity with whoever needs it!
