CILIP South West Professional Registration Support: Chat About Chartership
Wednesday 4 November 2020 13:00-14:00
Are you in the process of completing your Certification or Chartership portfolio, or contemplating how to get started?
Would you like to hear from an experienced member of the CILIP Assessment Panel, alongside the PRSO for the South West, and two successfully-registered members?
Join Sheron Burton, one of the PRSOs for CILIP South West, and CILIP Assessor Andrea Drewett, FCLIP, for a free one-hour support webinar addressing the challenges of professional registration, focusing on Certification and Chartership levels, and how to maximise your chances of success when
submitting your portfolio.
Two previous candidates (one each for Certification and Chartership) will also share their experiences and answer questions from participants.
Sheron Burton is one of the PRSOs for the South West Member Network, and was previously the MSO for the region. She has extensive experience supporting both candidates and mentors for professional registration, is involved with the national development of CILIP's professional registration support programme, and has been delivering a regular series of webinars over the past year.
Andrea Drewett has worked in several different Government Departments, running technical information centres and library services, her final post being an information management role with the National Crime Agency.
She achieved her Fellowship some 12 years ago whilst working for the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall.
She joined the CILIP Assessment Panel in 2004 and has continued assessing ever since.
She now does voluntary work for Torquay Library and the Citizens Advice Bureau, and currently mentors three Knowledge Management candidates.
Arved Werner Kirshbaum moved to London a year ago after completing an MA in Classics at Durham University. He is the current Library Graduate Trainee at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, following work in a busy academic library as a Reading List Assistant and voluntary work in smaller libraries.
He does not have a library degree (“yet!”) but has just achieved CILIP Certification and, in his own words, “has big plans.” A keen networker, Arved is keen for fellow professionals to get in touch and share their knowledge with him and, by extension, the wider community. You can reach him online via the Twitter handle @0ptimistBiscuit.
Catherine Chorley is the current Chair of the South West Member Network Committee and a qualified library practitioner. She completed her Chartership portfolio in February 2019 and currently works in the public library sector for Gloucestershire County Council. Previously, Catherine has worked in academic libraries at the University of Oxford and Liverpool, the latter also involving work with special collections and archive services.
Twelve places are available, and participants will need to register with an email address as we will be using the Zoom webinar platform. Upon registration, you will be sent the link to the Zoom session.
Submit questions and topics in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
