The ICE has told members who record their initial professional development (IPD) against development objectives to complete their IPD by 28 March or convert to the attributes-based approach.
In 2015, the ICE launched the attributes-based programme for completing IPD as part of a wider initiative to streamline the process for becoming professionally qualified. Previously, members recorded their progress against development objectives. Candidates must still meet the same standards, but the attributes-based IPD approach was designed to be more straightforward, aligning with the requirements of the Professional Review.
For ICE members to become professionally qualified, they must complete their IPD, where they develop work-based experience. After the March deadline, all members must follow the attributes-based approach.
A range of support and guidance to help members convert to attributes-based IPD is available from the ICE. More information is available on the ICE website.
