Professional Recognition Membership
Professional recognition provides a pathway or framework for an individual’s professional development while still allowing the flexibility for different options depending on the specialism of the individual. Gaining professional recognition raises both personal and professional credibility and so open new doors in the work environment. All of this help to improve an individual’s visibility and standing in the work community and is often the starting point for further development.
The requirement for professionals to maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge and skills and develop the personal qualities and competencies required in their working lives is a core component of professional recognition. Maintaining and recording CPD help to identify an individual’s strengths and interest as well as any potential professional development shortfalls. It helps to keep an individual up-to-date in their role and the project management sector which we know is constantly changing. Another essential element of professional recognition is a requirement to commit to a Code of Conduct to guide the member and raise the level of trust and confidence of the public in the profession.
