Call for expressions of interest to join the CMALT Development Group

ALT is looking to appoint up to three new members to the CMALT Development Group (CDG) for September 2013. We are particularly encouraging expressions of interest from individuals based outside the UK and those who have a background in Further Education and Adult Learning.

The CMALT Development Group was formed in 2010 to take an active part in the supporting of the scheme, its development and in directing activities for the CMALT community. The remit of the CDG is centred around the following activities:

  • acting as Lead Assessors;
  • contributing to and leading webinars (for candidates, assessors and the community);
  • playing a part in CMALT-related activities at the ALT Conference and representing CMALT at external events;
  • resolving occasional differences of view between assessors relating to individual CMALT portfolios;
  • contributing to the long term development of CMALT.

Members are expected to attend online meetings taking place app. 6 times a year and participate actively in the work of the group (app. 3 hours/month). Members of the group have the opportunity to represent CMALT at external events and we welcome individuals who are able to do so occassionally.

Criteria for eligibility
Every Certified Member of ALT is eligible to express an interest in becoming a member of the CDG. In choosing 3 additional individuals to join the CDG we will aim for a balanced representation across sectors and job roles. Experience of being a CMALT assessor or participating in CMALT events will be an advantage.

Information about its current work and membership is available here.
