Call for chapter proposals
Creative Data Analysis to be edited by
Helen Kara, Dawn Mannay, and Alastair Roy

The primary audiences for this edited collection will be Postgraduate Researchers and Early Career Researchers and it will also be a useful resource for Masters’
students, practice-based and mid-career researchers.

Policy Press has worked with us on this call and
expressed an interest in seeing a proposal for the collection.

To all members,
I hope that you have located the seminar series on You Tube, it really is excellent.
Here is another one - Prof Johnny Sung, with his presentation on the Singapore Skillsfuture strategy - for Lifelong Learning.

There are so many points that are relevant to us in South Africa, it's a definitely watch twice presentation - to make sure you caught everything - type presentation. So a definite for weekend watching.

Hi to all members,
For those who have not attended this online series, please make a plan to catch up with the whole series via You Tube.

The collection forms the equivalent of attending a very good post-grad course - unfortunately not accredited for credits, but really worthwhile with top-drawer speakers.

I did suggest once that it should at least accummulate CPD points with the professional bodies.

(I have not received any payment or incentive whatsoever to make those statements - it is simply my opinion.)

Are you thinking of pursuing further studies in 2022?

The Master of Education specialisation in Education and Work is aimed at those interested in improving their insight into education and the economy, education and social and economic development, and education and the world of work.

To have an idea of the quality of a REAL programme, have a look at the You Tube site for REAL & the quality of presentations there.

In fact, even if you are not thinking of studying - have a look at the You Tube videos of past presentations.

Another must attend REAL seminar -
Dr Leslie Powell - covering NSPS.
A new acronym for you? National Skills Planning System.

I'm pretty sure that practitioners working in the skills development world will say - planning? what planning?

Attend to hear about theories of plannning.
