Nigel Storm Shipston replied to Eduard Rabie's discussion De-registration of Dept of Labour 1st Aid in the group Training Service Providers
"Leon, This would indeed be good news if it turns out to be true, but it is a sad indication of the lack of consistency and continuity between all the authorities who are clamouring to take a bite at private training providers."

Nigel Storm Shipston replied to Lynel Farrell's discussion QCTO to the Rescue! QCTO Information Sharing Sessions - Register to Attend! in the group Concerned Providers Interest Group - QCTO/SAQA/SETA
"It is strange to me that no one seems to get to grips with the material being used for training.  We are going from unpredictable and inconsistent evaluation of training materials, to non-existent evaluation.  Mildly disappointed in this."

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
