The CIHT North East & Cumbria Annual Dinner Awards

Events in the Region

The CIHT North East & Cumbria Annual Awards & Dinner are held in October to celebrate the very best that the region can offer across four key areas of highways and transportation. The awards recognise the outstanding contribution the CIHT Region makes to all our lives and are open to members and non-members; small and large companies; the public and private sectors. Further details, entry forms and guidelines can be found on our events pages.

Working in association with the Transport Planning Society (TPS) , CIHT North East & Cumbria launched 'An Introduction to...'  in 2017 as a series of bite size technical seminars. They are aimed at members who are progressing a professional accredited qualification,  on a structured training programme, or who simply want to refresh their knowledge in a specific area. Held throughout the year, the programme follows the core technical competencies associated with CEng, IEng, EngTech, TPP and the TPS Professional Development Scheme (PDS). Please see our events page for details of the latest seminars in the series. This is updated frequently with upcoming events promoted through our regular mailshots.
