Director: CIOT and ATT welcome a new Director of Education
22 May 2024

The CIOT and ATT are delighted to have appointed Vicky Purtill who joined the CIOT and ATT in May. She joins us from Bader College, part of Queen’s University, Canada, and is looking forward to working with stakeholders to ensure that the qualifications offered by both bodies remain attractive and relevant in a fast-changing world.

After leaving school, Vicky worked in financial services for six years before returning to education to study law. After she completed her LLM in Public Law with UCL, she taught undergraduate law subjects at a number of institutions. In 2011, she moved into education policy for the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and worked with both the professional body and the independent regulator for almost 12 years, during which time she reformed CPD requirements for the profession, contributed to the extension of rights to practise for Chartered Legal Executives, worked with employers and other stakeholders on the introduction of the new Trailblazer apprenticeships for the legal profession, recreated the education standards for CILEX members and introduced a range of operational improvements to qualifications delivery.

We are sorry to see Rosalind Baxter step down as Director of Education this month. She has worked tirelessly for the CIOT and ATT since 1994. The CIOT and ATT extend to Roz very best wishes in her new endeavours, which include continuing her role as Institute Secretary for the CIOT, and thank her for her guidance and leadership across tax education.
