CIOB Graduate Professional Development Programme

What is it?

The CIOB Professional Development Programme (PDP) is available for graduates, or degree students, who want to progress to Chartered membership via a structured and assessed route.

The Programme develops and assesses candidates’ occupational competence within a framework of support from their employer and the mentors from Training LMS.

What is involved?

Candidates will be given full support over a suggested 12 – 18 months period that will include phone calls, skype and emails. This will be used to fully explain each of the competencies, give examples and provide feedback on submitted units.

The benefits

Employers benefit in a number of ways from supporting their employees in the PDP. Their graduates will be better qualified and more experienced, with increased job satisfaction and an active, positive attitude towards career management.

Who will be mentoring me?

Roger Gillespie FCIOB – Managing Director of Training LMS will be assisting you through your entire journey towards gaining MCIOB status.

Who is eligible?

To register for the PDP you need to have a suitable university degree – which may or may not be accredited by the CIOB and may or may not be in a construction-related profession. You also need to be working in a suitable role, most probably a junior management position. Upon successful completion of the programme you will progress to full Chartered member status (MCIOB).
