This article focuses on the competence of trainers in the South African workplace to provide training to underprepaired learners whose special learning need should be understood by the trainers. The National Qualifications Framework, brought into being by the South African Qualifications Authority Act of 1995, has as one of its goals the development of a competent workforce. This goal is shared by the business sector who is aware that only a competent employee can make a meaningful contribution to organisational growth. The writer investigated the capacity of South African trainers to meet underprepared learners' special need. She found that most trainers who are confronted by underprepared learners are not able to provide all the special support that they require.
