Dear Forum members
As part of my doctoral studies, I would like to create a focus group of members of this forum to explore some of the challenges surrounding quality assurance and accreditation of private providers.
This means you can participate online in your own time so that we would not have to meet at a specific time or place.
The way it will work is that I will post questions once a week for about 12 weeks in order to start the discussion on a specific point. Participants would be free to comment or not, as they see fit.
In reporting on the discussion, all the ethical norms will be observed, such as anonymity and confidentiality.
If you would like to participate in this focus group, please reply to this post.
Hi Jacqui I am willing to participate. Regards Jenni
Bernard Botha. I would like to join your group, have been involved with private providers for quite some time and know most of the pitfalls and frustrations.
Will help with pleasure! Regards Gizelle
Would participate with pleasure.
Hi - I am keen to join, brief background is that I drove the accreditation of WESSA, an environmental NGO as an accredited provider, developed the education and training QMS and an currently using open-source software to develop an online QMS...
I am willing to participate
Hi Jacqui. I am happy to participate. Not that I have a lot of experience as yeyt with quality assurance and accredation as yet. apart from what I have been reading up on, but I have some ideas based on quality assurance throygh a long carreer of developing and facilitating short training workshops in a range of ACP countries
As someone wanting to move away from what I have been actively working at for years to do something that is of interest and for which I have talent, training and ability my "outsider" comments may be useful so count me in if you want that perspective.
Count me in jacqui
