My background and qualifications

After 25 years experience in teaching and training adults at work, I started IVITA Learning in early 2004 and have steadily built a reputation for offering affordable quality training and assessment in the North West and North East of England.

I am committed to the principles of lifelong learning having completed my MA (Education), and Diplomas in Life Coaching and Performance Coaching.

I’m always studying something – I completed my MA in Creative Writing with University of Cumbria – check out my debut novel ¬†Judith wants to be your friend¬†


Oh yes, and I’ve recently completed a course on getting my face-to-face courses on-line. I am calling this new venture IVITA Learning On-Line



Examples of clients I work with:

Cumbria Chamber of Commerce. I work on two of their business start-up support programmes.

Appleby Heritage Centre to accredit my TAQA and AET courses.

I have strong connections with the voluntary sector occasionally running bespoke training sessions for their member organisations.

I have strong associations with the care sector training many assessors (TAQA), internal quality assurers (TAQA) and trainers (Award in Education and Training).



I have been supported throughout my time running IVITA Learning by Rachel Swinscoe who has a sound background in management and in learning and development – racheland she is a very nice lady too. Thanks you, Rachel.
