“Learning value – very high and adequate.”

Learners started off all positive to acquire some knowledge and skills regarding another role expected from them in the workplace. However, 90% of learners were not from a training environment and soon discovered that they will probably not utilise the role within their workplace setup, unless they will be appointed due to lack of expertise. Assuring quality in the workplace is usually not an exciting topic and it seems as if standards are easily influenced by example set by higher authorities. This not only influence their conduct, but also have a huge influence on morale within the workplace.
Moderation thus is not just a “checking and guiding” role, but can only be fully optimised if the role players have a foundation based in ethics and values, aligned with the vision of the organisation.
