3.2 TRAINING DELIVERY

The delivery of training should adhere to the design of the curriculum. Delivery should be guided by the 10 basic principles of competency-based TVET.

• The training is based on curriculum developed from the competency standards; • Learning is modular in its structure; • Training delivery is individualized and self-paced; • Training is based on work that must be performed; • Training materials are directly related to the competency standards and the curriculum modules; • Assessment is based in the collection of evidence of the performance of work to the industry required standard; • Training is based both on and off-the-job components; • Allows for recognition of prior learning (RPL) or current competencies; • Training allows for multiple entry and exit; and • Approved training programs are Nationally Accredited

The competency-based TVET system recognizes various types of delivery modes, both on and off-the-job as long as the learning is driven by the competency standards specified by the industry. The following training modalities may be adopted when designing training programs:

• The dualized mode of training delivery is preferred and recommended. Thus programs would contain both in-school and in-industry training or fieldwork components. Details can be referred to the Dual Training System (DTS) Implementing Rules and Regulations.

• Modular/self-paced learning is a competency-based training modality wherein the trainee is allowed to progress at his own pace. The trainer just facilitates the training delivery.

• Peer teaching/mentoring is a training modality wherein fast learners are given the opportunity to assist the slow learners.

• Supervised industry training or on-the-job training is an approach in training designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of the trainee through actual experience in the workplace to acquire specific competencies prescribed in the training regulations.

• Distance learning is a formal education process in which majority of the instruction occurs when the students and instructor are not in the same place. Distance learning may employ correspondence study, audio, video or computer technologies.

3.3 TRAINEE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Trainees or students wishing to gain entry into this course should possess the following requirements:

• can communicate both orally and in written • physically and mentally fit • with good moral character • can perform basic mathematical computation

This list does not include specific institutional requirements such as educational attainment, appropriate work experience, and others that may be required of the trainees by the school of training center delivering the TVET program.

...that Mercury’s historical corporate overhead-to-revenue ratio would conform to historical averages. * Women’s casual footwear will wound down in the first year of an acquisition. As he doubted that WCF would be willing to sell Mercury without it. * He didn’t prepare projections for debt or equity accounts. * To estimate a discount rate, Liedtke analyzed to assume the same degree of leverage for Mercury with AGI, which he estimated to be 20%. (Debt divided by the market value of AGI’s invested capital). * He expected this degree of leverage to pint a cost of debt for 6.0%, 40% tax rate, equal to AGI’s marginal tax rate. Mercury’s EBIT margin for 2006 was 9.8%. Lietdke’s 2007 projected EBIT reflects a conservative increase in EBIT of 9% compared to the average industry growth rate of 10%. According to the forecast for 2007 to 2011, the company is forecasted to show gradual and stable growth of consolidated income from $479.3 million to $597.7 million. This growth rate was estimated by assuming that men’s athletic sales will be declining from 15% in 2007 to 5% in 2011. Similar trends are assumed for women’s athletic which the growth rate is forecasted to decrease from 12% in 2007 to 5% in 2011. Men’s casual footwear, on the other hand, is expected to slowly increase its revenue growth rates when added to AGI assets. Women’s casual footwear was not projected to grow at all. Operating income was forecasted using an assumption that the management of the......

Footwear in Endonesia

...FOOTWEAR CASE In the Muslim world, insulting through god is one of the biggest crimes ever. When we look at the case, we can face the situation that the things go bad for Carlson and his company. It is obvious that Carlson’s advocate would not be counted by Muslims and those declarations by Carlson can increase the effect of his bad situation on him. As I understood from the case, the timing of revealing of the crime is suspicious. It could be conspiracy for Carlson and his company by Jewish. Well, if I were Carlson my action plan would begin by accepting this mistake and promise that all of the responsible people will be fired as a consequence of this mistake and fire all of the workers in the department of development and marketing to prove my faith through respect of Muslims. Firing people from company would create worker need for my company so in the process of selecting employee I would prefer to give a job people who are Muslims with high sensitivity through Islam. Also I would try to declare how I feel sorry for the big mistake at everywhere that I would be. In the second step, I would try to reach every people who owned sandals and collect sandals back from owned people. In return of this demand I would give opportunity them to buy new sandals from Footwear store then in a time, there would be no any sandals that have the letter of Allah and this would make things easier to forget. Also I would create new sandals to be sold and donate the earnings that I get from......

Mercury Athletic Footwear: Valuing the Opportunity

...their segments was Mercury Athletic Footwear. WCF wanted to dispose off this segment. They just wanted to divest because they wanted to focus more on their core business and move it up to the elite class. John Liedtke was the Business Development Head at that time in Active Gear Inc. He had a clear idea that acquiring Mercury will shoot up AGI’s revenues for sure. It would also ensure an expansion of the key business. In order to get a clearer picture on the acquisition, he needed to compare and analyze the company’s financials well. By this he could gauge the pros and cons of this acquisition. Are the strategic reasons behind the Merger good enough? Explain As a team, we had different views on this question. Some reasons make us think that it may be beneficial for AGI to grab the opportunity but some make us think that it might not be as promising as it seems. Let us see why we feel it is a good idea for AGI to acquire Mercury. Active Gear Inc. Mercury Athletic Footwear Revenue $470,285mn $431,121mn % Revenue Product wise 42% Athletic 58% Casual 79% Athletic 21% Casual Operating Income $60.4mn $42,299mn Revenue growth 2% to 6% 12.5% Active Gear was one of the most successful firms in terms of profitability, in the footwear industry.

Athletic Footwear Industry Analysis

...Athletic Footwear Industry Analysis The global athletic footwear market has shown steady growth in recent years with only minimal slowing down during the global economic crisis. China, as a leader, contributing over 63% of the world’s production, followed by Vietnam, Italy, Indonesia, Belgium and Brazil. It grew by 2.6% in 2009 to reach a value of $196.3 billion. In 2014, the global footwear market is forecast to have a value of $230.8 billion, an increase of 17.6% since 2009 (starta.co.uk). The U.S. continues to be the leading consumer in this market, even though it was projected that in the coming years it will be preceded by Europe and Asia. The athletic footwear market will be analyzed using Porter’s Five Forces where footwear retailers are players, buyers are individual consumers, and footwear manufacturers are the key suppliers. The market is dominated by large retail groups such as Foot Locker, Inc. Nike, Inc, Adidas AG, Finish Line, Inc. that hold a strong position in the market bargaining power over suppliers. Rivalry is the strongest between these large groups. The footwear is a basic necessity, so sales volumes are high what reduce buyer power. Much of the footwear has been produced in low-cost manufacturing locations, such as South-East Asia. Many domestic manufacturers in Western countries are unable to compete effectively with South East Asia manufacturers, as a result, many Western suppliers have gained power within the market by offering highly......

Mercury Footwear

... | Contents Mercury Footwear 1 Appendix A-1 Mercury Footwear Question 1 We think that this acquisition makes sense for AGI, for a number of reasons. First, the Mercury product portfolio gives AGI access to growing markets that they have not had access to in the past. Specifically, Mercury’s products have become popular with a loyal market of extreme sports enthusiasts that has seen recent sales growth. This could be a nice complement to AGI’s current brand, which is associated with a prosperous, active lifestyle. Just as importantly, there are potential synergies related to manufacturing. As mentioned in the case, there has been a recent wave of consolidation among Chinese contract manufacturers (used by both AGI and Mercury) that has been to the disadvantage of smaller companies. Acquiring Mercury would roughly double AGI’s revenues and allow them to offer longer production runs, build stronger relationships and negotiate better terms with their current manufacturers. There is further potential to consolidate suppliers and reduce the number of staff needed for on-site monitoring, creating efficiencies and cost reductions in the process. Additionally, numerous factors (proliferation of brands, underperforming lines) have served to strain Mercury’s infrastructure recently. AGI could potentially unlock some untapped value at Mercury by focusing on performing brands and winding down unprofitable segments such as women’s casual footwear. They have had success......

Mercury Athletic Footwear: Valuing the Opportunity

...------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- Mercury Athletic Footwear: Valuing the Opportunity By Christian Daba Submitted To John Katkish Background West Coast Fashions, Inc has decided to sell one of their segments, Mercury Athletic in the context of a broader reorganization. The head of the business development for Active Gear, Inc(AGI), John Liedtke, views this event as a good opportunity to acquire Mercury Athletic. Acquiring Mercury, to a large extent, is driven by that Mercury would double Active Gear’s revenue, increase its leverage with contract manufacturers, and expand its presence with key retailers and distributors. More importantly, this is due to some inferior performance AGI is going through, mainly the small size does not put AGI in a dominating negotiating position with its contract manufacturers. Meantime, some possible synergies make Mercury Athletic a very appropriate target. However, John Liedtke has not completed his evaluation of this opportunity by using various methods. Qualitative valuation Firstly, there are some facts should be considered: 1. AGI and Mercury are in the same industry—footwear, and both have casual and athletic segments, and are located in North America. 2. Their brand images and target consumers are quite similar. AGI brand and logo are......

Mercury Athletic Footwear Evaluation

...MERCURY ATHLETIC FOOTWEAR Problem statement: West Coast Fashions, Inc a large business of men’s and women’s apparel decided to dispose of one of their segments; Mercury Athletic. John Liedtke, head of the business development for Active Gear, Inc saw it has a possible opportunity for them to acquire it. The footwear industry is very competitive, with low growth and stable profit margins. AGI is very profitable but it is smaller than its competitors, which is becoming a disadvantage. Therefore, Liedtke believes that if they takeover Mercury will double AGI’s revenue, increase it’s leverage with contract manufactures and expand its presence with key retailers and distributions. Liedtke is evaluating the company in order to find out whether the future benefits justify or surpass the present value of the investment in Mercury. Analysis: In order for Liedtke to get a broader picture on the acquisition of Mercury, he needs to compare and analyze a list of financial data from 2006 to 2011; projected balance sheet accounts, operating results and free cash flows, and cost of capital calculations. This data will enable him to identify the strengths and weaknesses of this acquisition. First lets look a summary of the operations of both AGI and Mercury Athletics’ actual operations based on the last year given 2006 before AGI plans of acquiring Mercury. | Active Gear, Inc | Mercury Athletic | Revenues | $470, 286 m | $431,121 m | % Of Revenue Product | 42 %......

Damage to blood vessels causes because of diabetes results in less blood and oxygen getting to your feet. Because of this, small sores or breaks in the skin may become deeper skin ulcers. The affected limb may need to be amputated when these skin ulcers do not improve, get larger, or go deeper into the skin. Worldwide, 50% of all leg amputations happen to people living with diabetes.

Mercury Athletic Footwear

...Athletic Footwear: Valuing the Opportunity In March 2007, John Liedtke, the head of business development for Active Gear, Inc., a privately held footwear company, was contemplating an acquisition opportunity. West Coast Fashions, Inc. (WCF), a large designer and marketer of men’s and women’s branded apparel had recently announced plans for a strategic reorganization. The plan called for a divestiture of certain non-core assets and a renewed focus on WCF’s higher-end business, business-casual, and formal-wear apparel businesses. One of the divisions WCF intended to shed was Mercury Athletic, its footwear division. Liedtke knew that acquiring Mercury would roughly double Active Gear’s revenue, increase its leverage with contract manufacturers, and expand its presence with key retailers and distributors. He also expected that Active Gear’s bankers would quickly approach the company about a possible bid for Mercury; consequently, he wanted to complete his own rough evaluation of the opportunity before hearing the bankers’ pitch. Athletic and Casual Footwear Industry Footwear was a mature, highly competitive industry marked by low growth, but fairly stable profit margins. Despite the industry’s overall stability, the performance of individual firms could be quite volatile as they vied with one another to anticipate and exploit fashion trends. The market for athletic and casual shoes remained fragmented, despite the presence of a small number of global footwear......

Driven Athletic Footwear Executive Summary

...Driven Athletic Footwear Executive Summary Introduction/Key Issues: Driven is a key competitor in the footwear industry and we have some pretty impressive results in terms of revenue generated and market share. However, this report will outline some areas where we needed to improve and correct. Specifically, this relates to how to handle supply issues, how to reduce costs and overhead charges and how to continue to increase value to our shareholders. Recommendations: In order to counter the above issues we have determined that Driven could have: 1. Retained capacity in our plants to continue to produce and supply the market with our goods and: a. Over-produce in early years and hold inventory for when demand jumped in later years b. Take advantage of Private Label production c. Clear out the prior year inventory at discount prices 2. Boosted EPS, ROE and Stock Price by: a. Buying back more stock b. Issuing higher dividends c. Further reduce costs by producing Private Label Shoes Conclusion: Throughout the past seven years, Driven has been able to build efficiencies in our operations and we have been fairly consistent in meeting investor’s expectations in terms of stock price, return on equity and earnings per share. We have been able to learn how to continue to make strides and what we must do in the future to boost these figures even higher to both provide the most value to our shareholders and position ourselves in the market. ......

Indian Footwears

...A Case Study of Footwear Industry in India Sandip Sarkar The Context The Indian footwear industry has developed substantial links in the global production network. But, this industry is still dominated by firms that cater largely to the domestic market through the artisanal production system. Specific footwear centres and sections of firms in traditional footwear clusters have established strong relations with the export market. Still, there are only few firms (e.g., Lotus Footwear Ltd., Apache Footwear Ltd. Etc.) that are directly involved in the global production chain of multinational corporation (MNC) in the sports footwear category.. Apart from TATA, no large domestic corporate firm is involved in the footwear production either for export or in the domestic market. The marketing system of export and domestic markets can be aptly compared in the theoretical framework of transaction cost economics (Tesfom et. al, 2003). The key elements of this framework are asset specificity, uncertainty and frequency. In this low technology industry entry barrier is low and asset specificity is largely related to market information. In export market, the market research is largely undertaken by importers (wholesalers, retail chain stores, departmental stores etc.). In the absence of organised market research by wholesalers (along with low development of retail chain stores) direct entry into domestic market requires substantial resources. Second, greater uncertainty exists in the......
