Responding to COVID-19: insight, support and guidance

Employer accreditation

Our accreditation scheme for employers recognises your strong commitment to the professional development and training of staff, thus enhancing your reputation.

Why become accredited?

Gaining CIPFA accreditation enhances your reputation as a progressive and forward-thinking organisation and ensures high levels of competency throughout your workforce.

Employer accreditation (includes both training and CPD). Applicable for organisations with at least one active trainee and supporting CPD evidence such as IIP, a training development policy; or similar document or NHS Knowledge Skills framework. 

It will cover all Chartered CIPFA members in the organisation and exempt them from submitting third party evidence with their CPD submissions.

As a result of gaining accreditation your organisation is more likely to increase staff retention and become more attractive to prospective employees.
