    The importance of Certified Personal Development is key to career progression especially in the changing world of IT today, so this presentation will explore methods of understanding how to understand you current role, look at what is available to progress and then what is available to assist you in getting the right skills and development to get you where you want to be.

    Carol's Resume:

    Currently Carol works for the British Computer Society, in the Qualifications Division. As a programme manager Carol works with both the ISEB team and end user qualifications.

    Personal Development has played a key part of Carol’s career, both in setting up schemes for IT Professionals and ensuring her own personal development continuously improved her career prospects.

    About ISEB:
    The Information Systems Examinations Board (ISEB) is a division of the British Computer Society.

    ISEB was created in 1990 from the Systems Analysis Examinations Board (which was set up in 1967). ISEB administers examinations and issues certificates in a variety of subjects in the field of information systems engineering.

    The aim of the Information Systems Examination Board (ISEB) is to raise the standard of competence and performance of those working in IT. It does this by offering a range of relevant industry recognised qualifications.

    ISEB does not itself provide training to candidates preparing for its qualifications but, through the accreditation process, it does recognise and promote those training organisations which demonstrate the ability to teach the appropriate syllabus using competent tutors and good materials in an appropriate learning environment.

    ISEB has now issued over 300,000 IT Qualifications and the ISEB portfolio offers a large number of IT qualifications over a variety of disciplines.

    ISEB Qualifications: Benefits

    As well as being universally accepted, ISEB qualifications are carefully tailored to meet the needs of IS practitioners, at all stages in their careers.

    Qualifications are designed to be both accessible and relevant. They cover all major areas of IS including Management, Development, Service Delivery and Quality.

    Thanks to our close links with industry representatives and subject sponsors, they also encompass the latest technological advances and new methodologies.

    As a measure of their success, over 155,000 ISEB qualifications have been awarded to date.

    If anyone cares to attend (Non-members very welcome) I'd be pleased to meet up at the meeting
