Continuing your IPD if you change employer
If you are on an ICE Training Scheme and move on to a new employer, you can transfer your progress provided your new employer is also an ICE Approved Employer. And rest assured, there are other options if your new employer does not have Approved Employer status.
If you can, you should aim to update your attribute achievement records and ask your SCE or DE to review and verify your progress before you change employer. However if you have left already and are no longer in contact or your SCE / DE, your new SCE or DE should also be able to verify your achievement by reviewing and discussing with you the evidence you previously submitted.
We have prepared a brief FAQs document that covers other key queries about transferring a Training Agreement when you change employer.
If you need additional information or have any questions the team at our Membership Support Centre will be happy to help:
