Call for nominations for membership of EFAD Education and Lifelong Learning Committee


EFAD is looking for two new members for the Education and Lifelong Learning Commitee (ELLLC), from 2018 to 2022. The Vision and Mission of ELLLC can be viewed in appendix 1

Committee members will not be reimbursed for their work, but any previously approved expenses incurred on behalf of EFAD will be reimbursed

Terms of Reference for Education and Lifelong Learning Committee (ELLLC)

Purpose:To embed Lifelong Learning in dietetic practice

  1. Propose and implement strategies to embed Lifelong Learning (LLL) and dietetic competences for European Dietetics which supports the strategies of Member Associations
  2. Using best practice of member Associations and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) advise on mechanisms for embedding Lifelong Learning for dietitians working and studying within Europe
  3. Liaise as appropriate with other European professional groups and monitor the developments in education and LLL of other health professionals
  4. Make recommendations to the EC on recognition of European Specialist Dietetic Networks

Membership of the ELLLC will be for 4 years. The committee will meet virtually approximately every 4-6 weeks

Committee members, who should be nominated by an EFAD member association for their skills and experience in education and their capacity to contribute to the work of the ELLLC, do not necessarily need to be members of EFAD Member Associations, although this would be preferable. As members of an EFAD committee the “terms of reference for standing committees” outlined in the governance document (see appendix 2) apply.

Deadline for nominations – 12 April 2018

Send your nomination, with all accompanying documents to: Judith Liddell EFAD Executive Director
