Future skills project

The Future Skills project is reviewing CILIP’s qualifications to ensure every member gets the recognition they deserve from their employers and society for a unique suite of highly valuable, relevant and endurable skills.

This review has created the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB) and the revised model for delivering accreditation of academic and vocational qualifications and Certification, Chartership, Fellowship and Revalidation.

  • Changes to Regulations

    The final step in the implementation for the new Framework of Professional Registration is to make changes to CILIP's Regulations. These need to be agreed by a simple majority of members at a general meeting or by ballot.

    A transition plan will be in place so members currently undertaking their qualifications will still be able to submit their application using the old process and assessment criteria. This page will be updated when transition planning is complete.

  • New framework of Professional Registration

    Reviewing qualifications and awards should be an ongoing activity for all Professional Bodies. It is good practice to review the market and strategic environment to make sure that the qualifications provide meet the needs of the profession, employers and individuals. The review of qualifications began in May 2012 and following a number of intermediate stage reviews, CILIP Council approved the recommendations of the review in March 2013.
