On the 1st January 2016, Helen was appointed as the Chief External Verifier for CILT in the UK.
Helen has been involved with the CILT for many years including the roles of Assistant Director of Professional Development and External Verifier. Her work included being involved with the integration of the Institute of Logistics and the Chartered Institute of Transport. This also included the subsequent changes to the qualification structures at that time, and to the implementation of the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) scheme for the new institute.
“Helen is a highly experienced External Verifier and Training professional. Her immense depth of knowledge has been brought to bear to assist the CILT (UK) Awarding Organisation and I know that each of the External Verifiers appreciates her support and experience in bringing changes about. Helen has also for over 17 years, been directly involved in developing and monitoring military logistics courses on behalf of CILT (UK) and has developed an acute awareness of the strengths, opportunities and issues of current serving and ex-forces personnel. As a result, she is exceptionally well placed to ensure the Institute delivers best value out of this unique and valuable group and also represents their interests in an effective manner.” David Ockleton, FCILT FCMI.
Over the past year, Helen has re-focused attention on the processes for internal verification across CILT (UK) centres, and on information, advice and guidance to centres on student entry levels. The external verifiers are now also working on clarification on risk assessment within centres. Helen says:
“I have always believed strongly that the role of external verifier is one of support and guidance to ensure high standards of training, assessment and verification within centres. I have particularly enjoyed working with new centres over the last year through their initial approval.”
As well as being an integral part of CILT (UK) Helen is a Fellow of The Institute of Leadership and Management, and holds qualifications in management, training and development, executive coaching and leadership mentoring. To discuss how Helen can help you: Contact Us
