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 1,300 Certificates of Professional Development have been awarded so far! tCI’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, it is necessary to accumulate 100 credits by attending the various courses offered by tCI, one of which should normally be a Masterclass. Members can mix-and-match courses to suit their own development priorities, and the Institute offers personal guidance to help those uncertain what’s best for them. Note that different courses can attract different credits towards the required total.

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

Qualification requires current membership but credits are accumulated regardless and can be counted if joining at a later date.

Advanced Practitioner Certificate

Since the Institute’s inception in 2003, over 1,300 members have obtained the Certificate of Professional Development (CPD).

Our fast-moving profession needs a further level of recognition so that those who keep up-to-date and can demonstrate current skills and know-how can achieve our Advanced Practitioner Certificate (APC).

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 (excluding training courses but including the APC workshop) and we will normally invite applications from members three times a year in September, January and April. Certificates will be awarded in December, March and July.

APCs can also be offered in-house for organisations wishing to develop their overall capability.
