Judges Competency Framework to be known as Judges Education Programme (Breed Shows)

The Judges Competency Framework (JCF) underwent an independent review in 2019 which recommended that a new name be adopted by the framework, without using the word ‘competency’. This view was also supported by the findings of the Kennel Club survey on the JCF.

The Kennel Club Board has recently approved a change of name for the JCF. It is now to be known as the Judges Education Programme (Breed Shows).

Kathryn Mansfield, Kennel Club Secretary, said: “In reaching this decision, the Board was mindful that, as the Kennel Club offers education for all judges, this new name can be adopted across all its licensed activities, for example Judges Education Programme (Agility Shows).”

All queries related to the Judges Education Programme (Breed Shows) should be directed to the team by email . All documentation for each activity will be updated with the revised name in due course.
