Benefits of The Psychometrics Forum:
For Psychometric Practitioners
Forum Events – Continuous Professional Development
We run four CPD events a year, with internationally renowned speakers, giving attendees updates from the cutting edge of psychometrics development. Speakers have included: Professor Adrian Furnham, Dr Rainer Kurz, Dr Hugh McCredie, Dr Nigel Guenole, Dr Paul Flaxman, Professor Dave Bartram, Tom Hopton, Dr Bob Hogan, Andrew Munro, Dr Paul Barrett and Professor Stephen Woods. See our Past Events page for details.
TPF members have the benefit of receiving a discount on our events. Fully paid up members only pay £75 for events, as opposed to £125 for non-members.
We are really excited to be able to offer an ongoing programme of training opportunities, such as psychometric test training and skills development and our latest offer is for Hogan Courses with PCL and Advanced People Strategies. Recent events have included Lumina Spark, MBTI Step 1, the Hogan Suite, and Saville Wave. Previous offers have included the opportunity to join public courses, with companies such as Hogrefe, Psysoft, VoicePrint, TypePro, AQR International, Team Focus, and TMSDI with more in the pipeline. For non members please see our Training Offers page for details and use the link Membership and How to Join for information on becoming members and taking advantage of the training discounts.
Free Annual Networking Event
Alongside our more formal programme of CPD events, we also hold a free annual networking event with mulled wine and mince pies in late November. This features our TPF Excellence Award, where we celebrate new excellence in the field of Psychometrics. We have had many test publishers coming to our events such as Artic Shores, HireVue, Pymetrics and many more which gives members an opportunity to network with them and have one to one conversations, giving the best advice as possible from their experienced backgrounds. See our Events page for more details.
Access to Psyche
Membership of the Psychometrics Forum gives members the benefit of receiving a copy of the group’s Newsletter, Psyche, four times a year, edited by TPF Committee Member, Tameron Chappell.
Archived newsletters are also available on line for all. Please see the Psyche page for access to this material.
Dedicated LinkedIn Group
The Psychometrics Forum has a highly active LinkedIn Group with a private membership of over 5,500 members. This is an ideal site for practitioners to ask questions and debate key issues in psychometrics. Click here to log in and search for The Psychometrics Forum Group to request membership.
The Psychometrics Forum is continuing to explore a range of benefits for its members, including discounts on test materials, publications and further training courses.
It can be lonely out there! We have many independent consultants who greatly value the opportunity to network and exchange experiences. Join them! Who knows what opportunities might come out of it? Members find our meetings enjoyable and a good mix of socialising and professional development.
Corporate membership is financially advantageous for organisations wishing to enrol 3 or more of their staff in The Psychometrics Forum. Corporate membership costs a minimum of £100 for 3 people, additional members are charged at £20. Not only are costs less than for individual membership, but we can help test users to develop their psychometric knowledge to the benefit of their organisation.
For Sole User in an Organisation
The sole user of psychometric assessments in an organisation can feel isolated just like an independent consultant, having no other informed person with whom matters of test interpretation and usage can be discussed. The Psychometrics Forum can be a valuable means of reference in this circumstance.
