    Hi Dave,

    I created the Categories.

    The purpose of skills-universe is to enable practitioners, employers and employees, students and academics within a very broad definition of both learning and work – including activities of occupational health and safety and employment relations, to share knowledge and information with each other.

    All of the Portal Publishing sites are based open access to information.

    We wish to encourage sharing of information, which serves a number of purposes:

    • new entrants gain knowledge
    • experienced practitioners gain reputation and personal credibility
    • recognised professionals contribute to development and recognition of their profession 
    • skills, knowledge, and capacity are generally enhanced, and
    • institutions charged with implementation of workplace activities of skills development, education and training, employment equity and development, and health and safety are supported – not in a sycophantic manner, but via promotion of activities, and constructive criticism and engagement.  

    Members who have “Contributor” designation regularly contribute information and share their knowledge. They post discussions and contribute to discussions posted by other members.

    Some members have been designated as “Expert” either by virtue of their position, or their contributions identify them as experts in their field.

    It is entirely my subjective opinion of what comes to my attention by working on the site on a daily basis. However, I’m always happy to consider any suggestions.

    Hallo Des,

    I am not on the Skills universe sight as part of my daily agenda, but every now and then I like to rant and rave….I call a spade a spade, which has got me into trouble before.

    I missed you at our November “verification visit” but I am sure that I will see you again some time if the ETQA still maintain their rotational policy.

    By the way, I notice that some members on this portal are listed as “contributors” and some as “experts”. I have not noticed any other “groupings”, but just out of curiosity, do you perhaps know how that sort of “status” is awarded?

    Number of contributions, level of knowledge, proven expertise……

    If that is the case, I guess I will never reach “expert” level………the categories sort of remind me of Pacman or something similar?

    Kind regards,
