Qualitas Middelburg never existed
06 June 2013 | Jana Boshoff
We met with Mark Shields in November 2012. His Middelburg campus, like other colleges, showed interest in our brand. With no presence in the region, we too were interested. After discussing our business model, we all agreed in principal to proceed.
Mr Jensen say that although an application process was initiated, a couple of steps needed to be done before Mark could call himself part of the Qualitas team.
“Applicants submit specific documents according our guidelines. If approved, we issue an invoice, and if paid, a contract. Once signed, sites receive our support, curriculum, student registration forms, etc.”
He says that the application process was terminated when Shields failed to meet a March deadline.
“There is no Qualitas Career Academy in Middelburg. There were merely discussions and a partial application, but no approval, payment, contract or license.”
Mr Jensen said that Qualitas do not offer matric as a course.
