Employer accreditation

Our accreditation scheme for employers recognises your strong commitment to the professional development and training of staff

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. It also increases staff retention and makes your organisation more attractive to prospective employees. 

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 covers all Chartered CIPFA members in the organisation and exempts them from submitting third party evidence with their CPD submissions.
