Branch Member Development

Continuing professional Development (CPD) and Initial professional development (IPD)

We believe one of our key duties is to encourage members to developer prospects by achieving Chartered membership of IOSH.

A principal function of the Branch Education Development Adviser (BEDA) and mentors is to help members to do this.

They particularly concentrate on helping new Graduate Members through the Initial Professional Development (IPD) process to achieve Chartered status.

To find out more about the potential support available with IPD contact the West of Scotland Branch.

Depending on the route used to achieve Graduate membership, this can include advice on preparing:

  • professional portfolios
  • for the open book examination
  • for peer review interviews

General information on IPD be found on the main IOSH web site.
