Nigel Storm Shipston replied to Nkhensani Ndhlovu's discussion Training Providers not Paying Facilitators...
"Hi Nkhensani, Whatever you do, whether it is 50% up front and 50% on completion, or 100% on completion, always retain something important until the full amount has been paid.  For example, if a report is necessary for the provider to continue…"

Nigel Storm Shipston replied to Lynel Farrell's discussion Verifier Qualification Information - Why so limited?
"Hi Lynel, Depends on the ETQA.  They all draw from the same SAQA Guidelines, but over the years the processes have been mauled to a state of total inconsistency.  What should have been an important element in the QA of Assessment has…"

Nigel Storm Shipston replied to Hannes Nel's discussion The role of the verifier
"Hi Lynel, One of my pet concerns! As an assessor or moderator, you are required to be registered against certain criteria.  In many cases, ETQA's seem to have no such criteria for external moderators/verifiers or even the ETQA…"

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.

Kind regards
Jacqui
