Marie Smith commented on Des Squire's blog post Understanding Moderation
"Well written post, Des. I agree that moderation should be a rather painless process, especially if moderation of design took place at the beginning of the process and competent assessors with subject-matter expertise are being used."

Hi, Marie, we are still in the initiation phase of the establishment of SAPTA. We had our founding meeting in November 2012 in which an Executive Council was elected. SAPTA has been registered with CIPRO. Three dedicated work groups were established to focus on the pivotal areas, namely: Governance; Membership/certification and Marketing/administration.

We plan to have our first networking breakfast sometime in April in which we will invite all interested stakeholders to join us and a more formal event in June 2013.

Essentially, SAPTA's vision is to instill and foster a culture of professionalism amongst trainers and to be the custodian of the rights, interests and needs of trainers. Indeed a tall order, but we have a fantastic ExCo and work group members to drive the process.

You are welcome to register and/or volunteer for the work groups. Our next meeting will be mid-February. SAPTA will be using Skills Universe and LinkedIn as communication platforms.

Hi Marie

I have not forgotten about you - I have asked the question and they will let me know what we can do shortly!

Hi Marie

it would seem we have a glitsch - CIMAP website has a full page explaining the RPL facility as well as a list of available qualifications under News and Views.  E-mail seems to be working fine but have not received anything from you today.  Please give me a call on 079 346 2298 if you continue having problems? 

Thanks 'Henriette

Evaluating learning material to be acquired or developed

Posted on July 31, 2012 at 12:56 19 Comments

When deciding on a developer or a supplier of off-the-shelf SAQA-aligned outcomes-based learning material and assessments, the Training Provider's dilemma is how to evaluate the potential contractor or supplier.

Some time ago, the question arose of what guidelines can be given to training providers when they have to decide on contracting a designer/developer of outcomes-based learning material and assessments or when they buy 'off-the-shelf' material.

The suggestions that…
