A Career Appraisal is a way for you to complete the initial professional development (IPD) stage of your professional qualification. You may also use the Career Appraisal to demonstrate the additional IPD as you progress from one grade of membership to another- for example from IEng MICE to CEng MICE.
You will need to show how you have met the attributes at ability level for the grade of membership you have applied for.
You do this by sending us the documents listed below.
How do I apply for a Career Appraisal?
You will need to send us the following documents:
- A Career Appraisal application form
- Certified copies of your academic qualifications
- A detailed CV
- Your attribute achievement form
- Written examples of your work, cross-referenced with the attribute form, to show how you've achieved the attributes
- Continuing professional development (CPD) records
You need to highlight how the experience you've gained relates to the attributes at ability level for your preferred grade.
Your application will be assessed by experienced ICE members and ICE staff, who will decide whether your experience means you are ready to apply for Professional Review at your preferred grade. Find out when the submission dates are.
You can get more details about the Career Appraisal, including how to prepare these documents, in our Career Appraisal guidance.

What happens if I'm not successful?
If the assessors decide that you haven’t given enough evidence to achieve each of the attributes at ability level, you will be asked to provide more information or to meet with your Membership Recruitment Team to discuss your experience before sending the additional information.
What happens if I pass?
If you’re successful, you’ll receive a letter which says you can proceed to the next stage of your qualification – the Professional Review.
