Micro-Credentials, Experiential Learning, etc. are examples of some rapid developments in the pathways of becoming a professional. Many of our member organisations are currently exploring and working on what progression to the membership of a Professional Association might look like in the future.
Our Round-Table will explore possible future pathways to professional standing and eligibility for membership of Professional Associations. If there is consensus on basic principles of potential future pathways to become a professional, we may capture these as possible guidance for the Professional Associations sector.
