Initial Professional Development (IPD) is the second stage in becoming professionally qualified with ICE and bridges the gap between your educational base and your professional qualification.
What is Initial Professional Development (IPD)?
Initial Professional Development (IPD) is the stage in your career where you develop the special skills and acquire the specialist knowledge and competence needed to practise as a civil engineer or technician.
The first part of your IPD should be structured to give you the necessary breadth of experience, as defined in the ICE Development Objectives.
The second part should be a gradual progression (dependent on your personal development and commitment) towards increasing responsibility. This part should also provide time for consolidation of your experience and for preparation for the Professional Review. The two parts may be concurrent or consecutive.
How Can IPD be Completed?
This is the recommended method of obtaining IPD via an Approved Training Scheme aimed at developing your knowledge and experience in a supervised scheme.
If you do not work for an ICE Approved Employer you will be required to manage your own training through the completion of a Career Appraisal.
Through the completion of an approved NVQ/SVQ at an appropriate level you will have demonstrated both the educational base and the IPD required for EngTech TMICE.
