There are three options available to you if you want to become a Chartered Fellow.
1) Have your experience accredited via our direct route, Experience Assessment
Experience Assessment is a straightforward way to get recognition for your existing HR and L&D achievements. If you meet the criteria for Chartered Fellow and can demonstrate this by providing work-based evidence from the last three years, then this could be the best route for you.
2) Study a CIPD Advanced-level Diploma
CIPD qualifications are internationally recognised and successful completion of an Advanced-level Diploma could lead to Chartered Fellow, providing you have the relevant experience. Once you’ve completed your qualification you’ll need to apply to become a Chartered Fellow via our upgrading process.
3) Upgrading your level of membership
