Participants receiving cetificates

Over forty people attended NICVA’s Certificate Presentation on Friday, 24 April 2015, celebrating the work of more than a hundred participants who completed accredited qualifications over the last year.

Certificates were given out for qualifications in ILM Level 5 and Level 3 Leadership and Management, TQUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training, and ILM Level 5 Coaching and Mentoring.

The main speaker was Seamus McAleavey, Chief Executive of NICVA and encouraged those present to be innovative and creative in difficult times, showing leadership in taking organisations forward in times of austerity.

Participants from the courses also shared their experiences. Louise Hughes, Project Co-ordinator from NI Association for Mental Health (NIAMH) said ‘Completing the TQUK has proved to be very beneficial to me and my organisation, I have developed the skills, knowledge and confidence to build a formalised training package to roll out to staff across NI, I have no doubt this will influence and improve their practice.  I am just about to finalised a full days training package on Dementia Care and I have the skill set to ensure I am meeting learners needs and adapting my style to ensure it is both informative and enjoyable.’

Sandra Bailie, Head of Organisational Development said ‘Congratulations to all who have achieved accreditation today. The certificate is a reminder of all that you have learnt and the changes you have made as a result of your learning. Keep on sharing your learning and looking for opportunities to learn new things.’
