Imagining futures for Professional Registration support: tell us what you want, what you really really want…

Wednesday 3rd July, 16.10

Room 1.218

How can CILIP best support candidates to achieve Certification (ACLIP), Chartership (MCLIP) or Fellowship (FCLIP) through its Professional Registration activities, services and information?

What ideas do you have to ensure that process and guidance are as straight-forward, accessible, transparent and accountable as possible? If you are, or have recently, worked towards professional registration then Kate, as Chair of the CILIP Professional Registration & Accreditation Board and Victoria, as a Candidate Support Officer, would love to hear from you.

This workshop session will begin with a brief overview of current professional registration requirements, followed by a facilitated discussion. This is your opportunity to share. We’re looking for best practice, positive thoughts and ideas to shape our processes and guidance going forwards so that CILIP can best support you.
