Over the last five years I have been a member of the Programme Executive to establish an Undergraduate programme in the new Medical School, gaining GMC approval for leading the construction, establishment and development of the two GMC domains of Learner and Educator support.

To do this I needed the commitment of health care professionals, university lecturers as well as lay members of the public for committee memberships and coursework facilitation. Engaging and co-ordinating the many multi-disciplinary teams towards a successful and ongoing development has been a very important and rewarding aspect, and it has been so principally because of the vital contributions of Anneliese.

As Staff Support lead for a new Medical School I have seen first-hand the great help that Anneliese has afforded our teaching staff in developing situated group learning skills and the feedback from the staff has been overwhelmingly positive. Her programmes are interactive and informative, combining new ideas, frameworks and strategies in a well-structured but informal delivery. Delegates appreciate her breadth of knowledge, the pace and range of activities and Anneliese’s lively and engaging delivery.

With the embedding of the Medical School over the last four years, the Personal Tutor programme has evolved and Anneliese has been proactive in responding to our changing CPD objectives. Going forward I will most certainly be continuing to work with Anneliese as we enter the next phase of our development as a Medical School and I would heartily recommend Anneliese to anyone wanting to develop a CPD programme for their staff.
