Faculty membership and post-nominals

To be able to join the Faculty as Member or Fellow you must undergo an assessment.

Following assessment, you receive Faculty post-nominals (see table below), and a Faculty Assessment Report which provides you feedback on your next steps of development from your peers. The Faculty Assessment Report serves as a starting point from which you can access the Faculty Professional Development Service to work with the Faculty Team on your Professional Development Plan (PDP).

Your post-nominals are valid for five years, after which you'll have to undergo the assessment process again.
