Qualifications Committee call for advisers

Role of the Qualifications Committee

The Qualifications Committee is responsible for advising the CGIUKI Board on all aspects of qualifications within CGIUKI, including all those leading to membership of the Institute. An Assessment Review Panel, a Qualifications Committee sub-committee, monitors the quality and standard of the examinations.

About the role of adviser

Owing to the technical nature of the Qualifications Committee’s responsibilities, advisers are invited to attend meetings of the Committee on a regular basis. Advisers to the Qualifications Committee should bring an independent view on a range of educational matters, drawing on knowledge and expertise which is not otherwise available to the Committee. We are particularly keen to see candidates with professional body experience of assessments and qualifications.

Responsibilities of members

A minimum of two formal meetings (max 2.5hrs) are held each year. All meetings are hybrid with the possibility of attending face-to-face or via videoconferencing facility.

Members of the Qualifications Committee are expected to:

  • Review papers, attend meetings and complete actions as agreed.
  • Have a genuine interest in, and a good understanding of, the work of the Institute and the profession it represents.
  • Demonstrate an ability to analyse complex information, question, probe, and seek clarification in order to come to an independent and unbiased view.
  • Maintain strict confidentiality regarding sensitive information and the business of the Membership Committee.

The current Terms of Reference for the Qualifications Committee can be found here

There are currently six members of the Qualifications Committee. The CGIUKI’s President has a right to attend the meetings ex officio. The Head of Learning and Development and the Head of Secretariat attend meetings.

Period of Appointment

The appointment will be made for an initial period of a maximum of 3 years, and appointees may be eligible for consideration for reappointment for a further term of 3 years.


Members and/or advisers are not remunerated for their service but can claim reasonable expenses incurred in carrying out their duties/or roles in line with the Institute’s expenses policy.
