A call for help to SETAs, SAQA, QCTO and DHET have been tried.  In order to get concerns heard in the QCTO environment, member support is required to forward our cry for help to the Public Protector.  We can only stand together, support one another and hope for a positive outcome.  The time has come to stand together.See More

Hi Andrew
Good to meet you again after such a long long time.Last week i was presenting a Springbok badge to one scout from Hillcrest and met up with you dad.He told me all about what you doing there.Its so interesting and happy for you.

Send my regards to Michelle,will chat again and thanks for the invite\

Hi Andrew
You actually make a very interesting point - and I am not sure how many people actually understand compliance in that as you explained the ETQA would like to see an 'audit function' whereby a tick box exercise would suffice whilst compliance is so totally different and also as I always explain to non compliance people that it is substance over form in other words 'watch me' and note how I do things to ensure that I can do it rather than tick box effect .... and not only make sure I have captured 1 to 10 but see how I do it... and ensure I am doing it properly! I am sure the new learning framework QCTO will certainly assist us in our compliance endeavours as this occupational 'qualification' provides impetus in the how and the readiness to perform rather than theory and the tick box (assessment on theory) attitude? I am preparing training material and am researching climbing as I think this is a very apt topic to align to the 'need' for compliance in the financial services arena so any input would be most welcome.
Best regards
Robyn

Hi Andrew
Great line of work - I work in compliance in the financial sector and have always wanted to provide training and compliance aligned to climbing and safety... as not many understand compliance 'the intangible' but when compared to the skill and compliance requirements needed for 'climbing mountains' there is a light bulb moment and compliance is the in thing :)
What kind of training do you facilitate? Regards Robyn
