Membership of the Consultation Institute (tCI) is open to all those involved in, or interested in, consultation and public engagement.

Membership enables you to join a community of like-minded people and offers recognition to those who have undertaken training to improve their skills and knowledge. Through the dissemination of best practice publications and networking events, members can enhance their professional knowledge and advance their careers.

Enhanced Membership

In order to deliver greater value to its most loyal members and supporters, the Consultation Institute has created a brand new tier of membership. This level is the most comprehensive package that has ever been offered to consultation professionals, and offers significant discounts and benefits to those who have a historically high spend in public engagement and consultation exercises.

Discount Training Call-offs

If you’re looking to make the public training programme easily accessible to the organisation or perhaps you’re planning on CPD/APC routes for a few colleagues, then you may like to consider applying for a Call-off Package for public training.

You don’t need to know what courses you want to attend straight away as the Call-off Packages award you priority seats which can be used at any course at any time.  This is a very effective way of securing your training budget whilst stretching it that little bit further and also cutting down the administrative time taken to process a booking.

Member's Rates

10-14 seats at £185.00 + VAT – Starting from £1,850.00 + VAT

15-19 seats at £175.00 + VAT – Starting from £2,625.00 + VAT

20 + seats at £165.00 + VAT – Starting from £3,300.00 + VAT

Non-Member's Rates

10-14 seats at £235.00 + VAT – Starting from £2,350.00 + VAT

15-19 seats at £225.00 + VAT – Starting from £3,375.00 + VAT

20 + seats at £215.00 + VAT – Starting from £4,300.00 + VAT

Certificate of Professional Development

Over 1,500 Certificates of Professional Development have been awarded so far. The Institute’s Certificate of Professional Development (CPD) recognises an individual’s commitment to enhancing his/her skills and knowledge in consultation services and techniques.

To qualify for the certificate, delegates must accumulate 100 credits by attending various courses, some of which have different credit levels.

Some Institute Events (Conference, Seminars, Workshops, Roundtables etc.) also attract credits (10) – but only one Event attendance can count towards the required credit total.

CPD qualification requires an active membership but credits are accumulated regardless and can be counted if joining at a later date.

To discuss call Michelle De Branco on 01767 318350 or email michelle@consultationinstitute.org

Advanced Practitioner Certificate

The Advanced Practitioner Certificate (APC) provides recognition amongst consultation and engagement professionals. The emphasis of the advanced recognition is on the individual’s own experiences and insights gained from their professional careers, as well as acknowledging a thorough training history in the field of consultation and engagement.

To qualify you must have attended Institute courses worth 180 credits (inclusive of those counted in your original CPD) and this must include a course on the Law of Consultation. You must also have attended a training course within 2 years of your APC application.

The final element of the APC is preparation and publication of a Peer-Reviewed Paper (2,000 – 4,000 words) outlining your personal experience of one of our five standard topics.  You will attend a half-day APC workshop full of advice on how to write the paper and introducing you to the Advanced Practitioner Code of Conduct.

The fee for the APC application is £175.00 + VAT (covers APC enrolment, workshop attendance, and paper submission & grading) and we will normally invite applications from tCI Members three times a year and encourage you to get in touch to discuss your interest.

For further details on the workshop, paper topics, and to register your interest in becoming an Advanced Practitioner please click here.

For discussions, please call Michelle De Branco on 01767 318350 or email michelle@consultationinstitute.org
