This page has been included for those of you who are studying full-time, or who may be starting your exciting career journey, or who could already be well on the way and wish to advance your career development.

Your initial thoughts on reading some of the information included on this website might be:

  • This is a professional association for professionals, and I’m not a ‘professional’ yet; or
  • I wouldn’t be a suitable person to apply; or
  • I won’t have anything in common with others I meet at networking or educational functions; or
  • I would have trouble meeting the professional requirements; and so on.

However, before you decide against applying, or exit from this website, we would like you to consider the following:

  • Everyone has to start somewhere, and even our very experienced Fellows who enjoy a great deal of responsibility in their workplace started in a similar place to where you might be right now, or joined the Institute along the way;
  • You will be valued by the Institute, wherever your career aspirations might lie and whatever your current role might be;
  • The Institute prides itself on being friendly and approachable, and you will be made welcome at any Institute function you attend;
  • You will find you have a great deal in common with others, whether it be your studies, career aspirations or achievements, or interests outside the profession;
  • Our professional requirements are not as daunting as they might appear at first sight!
