Roof Tiles - Roof Slates - Slate Tiles - Clay Tiles

Sandtoft Debbie Janssen

Sandtoft, Wienerberger’s UK roof brand, is pleased to announce that Debbie Janssen MIoR, Senior Technical Advisor has achieved her Level 6 Diploma in Construction Based Management and Kathryn Lister AIoR, Technical Advisor has been accepted as an associate to the Institute of Roofing, further enhancing its commitment to technical excellence.

  • Debbie Janssen has worked at Sandtoft for 23 years, and has worked in the Technical Department for 15 years
  • The qualification she has recently completed is the Construction Awards Alliance, Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Contracting Operations Management General – (QCF)
  • An office-based qualification that takes three months to complete, it involves providing evidence for eight units, two visits from an assessor and a three and a half hour recorded professional discussion

  • Having worked at Sandtoft since 2005, Kathryn Lister has been accepted as an associate to the Institute of Roofing
  • With the knowledge Kathryn has gained having worked in the roofing industry for seven years, the Institute accepted her written application
  • Kathryn’s role sees her deal with enquiries from different types of customers from self builders, roofing and building merchants, architects, and local authorities to national house builders regarding tile specification, fixing, detailing and ventilation requirements
  • Using architects’ elevation drawings and roof plans provided by customers, Kathryn provides estimates and fixing specifications for roofing materials covering the complete Sandtoft range

Gary Walpole MIoR, Professional Trainer and NVQ Assessor, commented on Debbie’s achievements:

Debbie undertook this qualification as part of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors’ (NFRC) drive to up-skill managers working within the roofing industry. The idea being that the industry has professionals that have climbed the ladder into management but have no formal qualification to back up their abilities.

This is by no means an easy qualification to achieve but Debbie’s knowledge of the management systems and procedures she works with on a daily basis, alongside her technical knowledge and support she offers to clients, architects, designers and roofing contractors, was excellent evidence to allow me to build a robust portfolio of her management skills.

Simon Dixon MIoR, Training Manager and Senior Assessor at Sandtoft Training and Assessment Centre, said:

Everyone at Sandtoft is very proud of Debbie and Kathryn’s achievements – they have both worked extremely hard, and we are very pleased to say that all members of the technical team are now part of the Institute of Roofing. We take the education and development of our technical team extremely seriously, and these achievements are definitely well deserved.
