Career-minded aliens should head for US

first_imgCareer-minded aliens should head for USOn 1 May 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article TheUK qualifications system is need of a shake-up, according to Jeff BrooksImaginean alien training and development specialist arriving on Earth, anxious todevelop a portfolio career. The alien lands in the US, and after talking to anumber of universities is pleased to discover it will be possible to move fromassignment to assignment across the USA and continue professional studies atthe same time.Thealien learns about the American Collegiate system of academic transcripts andgrade point averages and decides to take up the offer of a job in Californiawhile studying part-time at CalTech.Ayear later, the alien takes up a consultancy assignment in Georgia and, afterscrutiny of his academic transcript, is allowed to continue studies at GeorgiaState. Oncompletion of the consultancy project, the alien moves to New York, but thistime decides to take time out from studies, happy in the certain knowledge thatthose studies can be resumed at any time and at any location in the USA.Nowimagine that alien T&D specialist had landed in the UK. The first problemencountered would be to discover what professional qualifications areavailable, who and where the providers are, and who the awarding bodies are.Thealien searches for a single point of information containing a database of allsuch provision but finds nothing. Ever resourceful, the alien researchesthrough libraries, the Internet, networks with other professionals, contactsvarious institutions and eventually compiles a long and confusing list.Thealien discovers many UK universities offering postgraduate diplomas in trainingand development, but they are all different and transfer between them looks difficult.The range of masters degree programmes looks interesting, but it seems therewill be portability problems here too.Thealien looks outside the universities and discovers a bewildering array ofqualifications in T&D. Soon the terms City and Guilds, RSA, Itol, IPD, IITTetc become part of the alien’s vocabulary and then, just when some semblance ofunderstanding begins to emerge, the alien discovers S/NVQs.Whatwould have made life simpler for the alien, and for us?First,we need a database of information that identifies all the training anddevelopment courses and trainer qualifications available in the UK outliningcourse titles, study methods, duration, qualifications, entry requirements,contact details and price.Itshould cover not only universities and colleges, but commercial trainingproviders, open/distance and e-learning provision, and should be easilyaccessible.Thesecond step would be more difficult: trying to show the links between thevarious training and development courses and qualifications. It is hard fortrainers wanting to upgrade their qualifications to find out not only what isavailable, but also how their existing qualifications might link into theavailable choices.Ouruniversities are grappling with this issue at present and I hope that thecredit accumulation and transfer process will eventually bring us some of thebenefits that our US colleagues have enjoyed for some time.Notwithstanding,we still have the question of compatibility between accrediting bodies, some ofwhich have difficulty talking to each other, let alone co-operating to buildbridges between their various qualifications.Whowill take the initiative, if only to compile the database? Contact me at ITOLif you want to talk it through. Of course, if anyone out there is alreadyworking on this, or something similar, I offer my thanks and I would bedelighted to hear from you. If all else fails, ITOL will add it to the longlist of things we have to do.JeffreyBrooks, director of the Institute of Training and Occupational Learning, can becontact on 0161-483 4577 or at [email protected] Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
