IWP Graduate Wins Practitioner of the Year Award

Congratulations to Kate Bonsall Clarke, an alumna of the Institute of Work Psychology (IWP), on winning the coveted Practitioner of the Year Award for Occupational Psychology.

This prestigious award is granted by the British Psychological Society’s Division of Occupational Psychology, and is annually awarded to a Chartered Psychologist who demonstrates excellence in the practical application of Occupational Psychology.

Kate received the award for her work with the Rail Safety and Standards Board, where she developed, implemented, and evaluated a programme for non-technical skills training for train drivers in the British rail industry.

Almuth McDowall, Chair-Elect of the Division of Occupational Psychology, commended Kate’s work as standing out from others in the shortlist, in that it evaluated its effect at the individual, team and organisational level.  Such an evaluation approach was inspired by the work of Dr Kamal Birdi, a researcher at the world-leading IWP, and one of Kate’s lecturers during her Masters course.
