Have Your Say – KC Survey, Judges Competence Framework.

KENNEL CLUB LAUNCHES JCF SURVEY: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR SAY

The Kennel Club is hoping for a large response to its consultation on the Judges Competency Framework (JCF), the second phase of which has been launched in the form of a survey.

Vivid Interface Research has been commissioned by the Kennel Club to carry out the consultation on its behalf, the first phase of which saw representatives from the company interviewing judges, exhibitors and officials at Richmond and Darlington championship shows in September. Representatives also gave exhibitors and judges the opportunity to participate in the survey at South Wales championship show as well as Hitchin and Rugby open shows over the weekend of October 11 – 13.

The Kennel Club will be contacting as many judges and exhibitors as is possible via email in order to publicise the survey, which can be answered both online and by mail, and details will also be disseminated via the canine press and on social media.

We would urge as many people as possible to answer the survey, so we can get as clear a picture as possible of what exhibitors, officials and judges want when it comes to the education, approval and listing of judges. We owe it to future generations of dog show enthusiasts as well as to ourselves to get this right, so please have your say.”

The survey can be accessed online at http://bit.ly/JCFSurvey. The deadline for completing it is October 18 and  copies are available on request from jcf@thekennelclub.org.uk or phone 01296 318540 and ask for the JCF team.
