Getting Qualified

A formal qualification isn’t essential to start your career, but formal qualifications show employers that you’re serious about a career in the profession, enhance your employability and provide a solid introduction to areas of work that you could move into later in your career. If you’ve decided to take this route you’ll want to know you’re getting the best. Find out which courses are accredited by CILIP.
