"I don't go away and I don't stop! One brick at a time and the wall will eventually crumble. Let's see what QCTO have to say first. No good bringing in the bulldozer now if a little hammer will do the job.…"
"I believe that a "functioning" training provider is one who offers services that have value to Learners. A "registered' provider can go through the whole process of moderation and verification, but the lack of expertise in…"
"Can we clarify the difference please Henk?
Do we take "registered" providers as the opportunistic bunch with sufficient resources to overcome the obstacle course and hoop jumping exercises to achieve "accreditation" and then…"
"Okay sister Warrior, as far as the TETA LMO sector goes, 2 Certification routes, the first that addresses the Driven Machinery Regulations requirements and the second (which can be followed through from the first) is the NLRD SoR certification…"
"Agreed. Which is why I say we need to step up here. We carry our own responsibilities, we don't rely on handouts, we provide our own resources, and quite frankly I find private training providers are a lot more committed and motivated to the…"
"Yes Sylvia, I think our objective is to establish a system that is practical and effective now before the system goes into full swing. Most of us have experienced the previous "changeover" and hopefully from those mistakes we can learn.…"
"Hi Mthobisi, I believe it would be in good faith to discuss any issues openly where all interested persons may be enlightened. Is there any reason why you prefer e-mail when you have the platform here to market your materials? As a fellow…"
"I agree Henk. After 17 years of being a lonely voice in the wilderness, it is somewhat distressing that people will vocalise their support, yet when it comes to the real action they still sit in the wings. There are many today who bemoan…"
"I agree Sylvia, apart from the odd FFS intermingled in communications, I believe Narina would be proud to be the owner of a legacy of co-operation. It is something of a comfort that we should be able to work together. It is however part of the…"
"I will drink to all of that Henk!
All of this is adding nothing to the substantial numbers, input and potential performance of private providers. Having more DHET Representation is going to solve nothing, it will only bring in more people with…"
"Hi Jax, threatening letters? Do tell. By whom and on what grounds? Sounds a bit demented, having a registered Professional Body blacklisted. On what grounds would there be need for threatening letters, or are we set on a path of…"
The name of our company is Krost training for Africa, we are situated in the city centre on albert street and my number is 031 3044071, thank you for your help but we urgently need to find Qualified Freelance Facilitators & Assessors that are Boilermakers & Welders
Thanks for your message. My personal opinion is that the training and education field is over regulated, and like a monolith or a 3-toed sloth simply gathering moss and mass! The bottom-up view that I will be taking will seek to provide a different QA paradigm - which has not yet been designed! Hopefully my research will lead to the creation of this new paradigm.
Hi Nigel Thanks for your message. It’s early days yet and I have not started my actual research but I will be looking for people to survey/interview, etc when the time comes, so will definitely keep you in mind. I think this website might also give me access to private and/or workplace providers - I hope so anyway.
Obviously I am doing a lot of reading at the moment as I will be doing an international global developments overview as well as looking at the politics and economics of the situation as well as the developments in SA as they unfold with the QCTO etc
The research proper will probably only happen early next year once I’ve worked my way through the preliminary stages of the doctorate but the proposal has been accepted.
