Graduates and Students

Graduates and StudentsThis section provides news and information of particular interest to students and young Asociate Members. 

Graduate Workshop

Guidance to graduates who are Associate Members and at the IPD stage of their professional development is available through a Graduate Workshop, lasting 60-90 minutes and organised by the Professional Affairs Department staff at the graduate' place of work.  The Workshop covers in depth The Routes to Chartered Membership..

Companies with graduates who are Associate Members who would like to arrange a Workshop should contact the Professional Department at


During the period of Initial Professional Development (IPD), when they are seeking to achieve the professional competence required for Corporate membership, Associate Members may benefit from the advice of a Mentor.

The Mentor will focus on the professional and personal needs of the Associate Member, providing assistance with the self-assessment of strengths, weaknesses and development needs of the individual, immediately with respect to meeting the requirements of Corporate membership, but also with ensuring that the individual achieves the sound foundation for a successful career.   The Mentor will provide valuable continuity during this period.

Sponsored Conferences Places

A number of free conference places, sponsored by the Institution and industry, are available for all Student Members and Associate Members still in full-time education.

Student sponsorship covers entrance into the conference and a copy of the conference proceedings in printed format. Applicants must be able to attend both or all days of a particular conference. Students allocated sponsored places who fail to attend  the full conference without informing the Institution or without good reason will not be allocated places at future conferences.

Sponsored places are allocated on a 'first come - first served' basis.  A limited number of sponsored places is available for each conference and normally only one place per year will be allocated to the same student.  However, unsuccessful applicants or students who have already been allocated a place may request to go on to the reserve list.  Application for sponsored places should be made to:
