quality in action - SASQ

Let’s thinks about professional development. Would you go for medical treatment to a doctor who has qualified 50 years ago, and will perform an operation with a heated knife and sews you up with a needle and cotton? Think about it. Would a company employ an accountant who has qualified many years go with no professional upgrading. This type of accountant will be comfortable running a manual cash book, a manual ledger and manual journals, and with no upgrading will not be able to use an electronic system. Who will employ such an accountant today? The message is clear, all professionals will need upgrading of skills and normally these are provided by the various professional bodies.

This is exactly what SASQ is to our members. It is a platform for the upgrading of skills and knowledge.

Professional development refers to skills and knowledge attained for both personal development and career advancement. Professional development encompasses all types of facilitated learning opportunities, ranging from college degrees to formal coursework, conferences and informal learning opportunities situated in practice. It has been described as intensive and collaborative, ideally incorporating an evaluative stage. There are a variety of approaches to professional development, including consultation, coaching, and communities of practice, lesson study, mentoring, reflective supervision and technical assistance.

So quality, environmental, health, safety and SHEQ practitioners and professionals think carefully about your careers and upgrading through SASQ before you become “OUTDATED”.
