Should a qualification in social media have more on-the-job focus?

Over at (where I work) we're reaching out to find social media practioners to join in defining the tasks the holder of an MA in Social Media should be able to perform.

We're taking a vocational approach because we believe there are going to be more and more jobs in social media (we've got three up for grabs right now!) for the on-the-job elements of a vocational qualification to take place in.

So, please join in to help create a standard we can all find useful?

The rate of change is so rapid it's difficult for one person to keep up to speed. Let's pool our thoughts, share our reactions and, who knows, even reach some shared conclusions worth arriving at?
