The Establishing a Positive Quality Culture in ETD book is now available. About this book:

Everybody knows that the quality of education, training and development (ETD) determines the quality of work that people do. In addition, students are always blamed when they achieve poor examination results, when poor quality ETD is often the real culprit. The problem is not that quality assurance of ETD does not take place. On the contrary, mos countries spend exorbitant amounts of money and time on quality assurance, unfortunately with disappointing results. The reason for this is that quality assurance in ETD is often done for the wrong reasons and with the wrong attitude. This book identifies the deficiencies in current quality assurance practices and suggests a constructive approach. Topics covered include:

  • Approaches to quality assurance in ETD.
  • Setting standards as a prerequisite for best practice ETD.
  • The impact of delivery on the quality of ETD.
  • The importance of leadership for quality ETD.
  • Management of quality in ETD.
  • The importance of human resources development for quality in ETD.
  • The importance of cooperation for quality in ETD.

Book Published: The Concepts and Procedures Governing the Recognition of Prior Learning

RPL WEB

The Concepts and Procedures Governing the Recognition of Prior Learning book is now available. About this book:

It is an objective of the new National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS III) to afford people who seek to enroll on learning programmes without the standard entry qualifications the opportunity to have their skills acquired through experience measured against that which they require to attain. It is hoped that this drive will result in recognition for those who were denied access to formal and quality learning in the past. Some people need this recognition because it is the just and right thing to do; others will use the opportunity to gain access to further learning and a third group will benefit in the workplace through appointment for those who are unemployed, better remuneration and promotion opportunities for those who have jobs. This book explains what one can realistically expect from RPL as well as how RPL can be practiced in an effective and efficient manner. Topics covered inlcude:

  • RPL defined.
  • Current RPL practice and opportunities.
  • RPL policies, procedures and plans.
  • Providing RPL advice and support.
  • Providing RPL to groups.
  • Administration of RPL.
