Two additional ‘Introducing Highfield’ sessions for Taunton/Belfast

introducing HighfieldWe’ve added two additional briefings to our series of ‘Introducing Highfield‘ events this spring. 

Due to popular demand, we’ll now be holding a briefing on the afternoon of 13 April 2017 in Taunton, and on the afternoon of 25 April 2017 in Belfast. Morning sessions are now fully booked. 

From this April, the CIEH will no longer be offering regulated qualifications and will be withdrawing its status as an awarding organisation. As a result, Highfield has been holding briefings for those centres that want to continue delivering regulated qualifications and are exploring ways of doing this. 

Each briefing lasts two hours and will provide further information on the benefits of being an approved Highfield centre, our policies and values, as well as guidance on our registration process. 

What you can expect on the day: 

  • details on how to switch from CIEH to Highfield, plus our support during that process and afterwards
  • overview of the qualifications we offer, and are planning to offer 
  • information on our FREE centre registration for CIEH customers 
  • guidance on moving qualifications over to the Register of Qualifications Framework (RQF)
  • examples of associated training materials from Highfield International 
  • the opportunity to network with training providers 

And of course, you’ll get the chance to meet the Highfield team and some of our subject matter experts face-to-face, ask questions and give us your views on what you want to see from a responsive awarding organisation in terms of service, qualifications and products.

Alternatively, you can secure your place by calling us on 0845 226 0350/01302 363277 or by emailing events@highfieldabc.com . Spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Highfield chairman presents top award for environmental health

environmental healthHighfield Chairman Richard Sprenger was the leading sponsor at one of Europe’s top environmental health congresses last month, where he was on hand to present a student with a prestigious award for her study on how to beat Ebola.

The 1st World Academic Congress on Environmental Health, was held in Coimbra, Portugal, from 22 to 26 September 2015, and brought together some of Europe’s leading academic experts in this field.

One of the highlights of the Congress was the presentation of the Roy Emerson Award to Kerri Milne at the International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) conference on 23 September 2015. The award, which is sponsored by Highfield and Regulatory Information and Management Systems (RIAMS) is given to undergraduate environmental health students for an essay on a current topic set by the IFEH, and is named in honour of Roy Emerson, one of the IFEH founders who died in 2010.

Kerri, a third year BSc (Hons) Environmental Health student at the University of the West of Scotland, took this year’s award for her essay, ‘World Health – It’s In Our Hands: Can We Beat Ebola?’.  Henry Healy, who is studying the same course as Kerri, was runner-up.

Richard Sprenger said, ‘It was an honour to present Kerri with the Roy Emerson Award and congratulate her on her excellent essay on the environmental health issues posed by diseases such as Ebola.  The future of environmental health is in good hands with students like Kerri and Henry coming through the ranks.

It was also a particular honour to support the IFEH and for Highfield to sponsor the award.  Roy was a good friend and we attended most of the IFEH conferences together, starting with the inaugural conference in Australia in 1988 until his untimely death in December 2010’.

Kerri’s essay will be published in the autumn edition of Environmental Health Scotland, due to be printed early October 2015.
