About Kerrie-Anne Sommerfeld

Rubric Training Solutions

I am a highly experienced and qualified learning advisor who works closely with clients to help them be the best they can be. This includes providing strategic advice to senior management, implementing improvements and developing the skills of staff. My motto is growth follows quality.

I have worked in education and training for over 20 years, including secondary education, Vocational Education and Training (VET) and now as a modern learning designer to Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and organisations looking to develop the capability of staff to meet business objectives.

Until 2013, I was the Learning and Academic Support Manager at Box Hill Institute of TAFE in Melbourne where I was fortunate to work with teachers and managers across all industry areas.  My role focused on leading and managing teacher and curriculum development.  This included developing academic policies and procedures, developing accredited courses and implementing cross institute and global projects linked to enhancing teacher skills and knowledge.  As a consultant I have continued to advance and apply these skills to small and large RTOs and a range of other organisations.

I enjoy working with managers and staff to help develop their skills and knowledge.  It keeps me grounded in the reality of staff development and current in the practices of modern learning.  My approach is grounded in performance based learning and design thinking to achieve improvements in performance.

I continue to develop my own skills and knowledge related to education and training through professional memberships, workshops and online forums.  I  have a Master of Education, specialising in Adult and Work Education, a Graduate Diploma in Education, CIV in Training and Assessment, Bachelor of Science and a Diploma of Business (Frontline Management).
