News from the BILD leadership The BILD would like to say a very special thank you and acknowledge the efforts of its resigning Trustees/Directors. The past 5 years have been a challenging time for the whole industry but we have been lucky to have several amazing Trustees/Directors of the BILD to hlep guide us through this time. In particular we would like to say a very big thank you to Jack Wills, previous chairman, for leading the transformation of the BILD into the Institute that it is today and to Karen Velasco for her leadership during the worst economic crisis we have ever known, where everyone seemed to be cutting back on their training provision and therefore people questioning the need for professional membership/status. Thank you to all of you and best wishes with the new direction/endeavours that you are now focussing on.

Does Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) Exist? According to the ROLE survey carried out with BILD members in June-July last year, it does exist but not across all subjects or organisations. SRL is elusive but it does have recognisable characteristics. For example, employees may be able to identify their own learning needs and select learning tools to support them. They may work at their own pace and have access to external resources.
