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.
Carillion Construction Training Limited offers diploma programmes to young people in construction skills throughout the country. I work with their work-based trainers and assessors on the qualifications they need to best help their young learners.
I have worked with Cumbria CVS previously offering NVQ Diplomas in Management at Levels 5 and 7. I still 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 – and she is a very nice lady too. (Thanks Rachel)
