Chaucer duo receive validation

Two trainers at Chaucer Insurance have been awarded the first CII Trainer Accreditations. The successful applicants are Nemesia Willis and Matthew Holden.

The Trainer Accreditation scheme was established to provide validation for trainers that have the appropriate technical knowledge, training skills and experience to provide a high quality training intervention.

The accreditation investigates the trainer's current technical knowledge, skills and experience and benchmarks these against the Accreditation standards. Factors reviewed include trainer qualifications, experience, ability to explain key insurance terminology to a range of different learner experience levels and examples of the trainer's continuous professional development. The Accreditation is reviewed each year to support trainer development and diversification in other subjects.

Mike Smith, Group Training Manager at Chaucer Syndicates Ltd said: "We believe this accreditation is essential to ensure that both the training material and delivery is at a consistently high standard. This reinforces our commitment to the ongoing development of our staff and we are delighted that Nemesia and Matthew have achieved this accreditation."

Tamsin Mills, Director of Accreditation & Consultancy Services for the CII, said: "Trainer Accreditation provides independent, industry recognised benchmarking of the trainer's skills and experience and will provide evidence of the ability of the trainer to deliver high quality training interventions.

"This external validation is essential; it recognises the training standards of an Accredited Trainer which will enhance their organisation's reputation as a provider of high quality training and development and assist in providing a competitive edge."
