  • Have current occupational currency with the ability to demonstrate achievement of a range of pre-defined personal skills and specific competencies

Assessment will be carried out through a range of methods such as work-related projects, portfolios and references. Feedback will be provided continually throughout the programme.

 There is a clear line of progression for learners to follow, from Level 4 to Level 7.

At each level evidence is assessed against six standards:

  • Commitment to Professional Standards
  • Communication and Information Management
  • Leadership
  • Professional Development
  • Working with Others 

Successful candidates receive two awards; an accredited qualification, regulated and recognised by Ofqual in England & Northern Ireland.

To achieve a Professional Recognition Award the candidate must provide evidence of their competency for each standard which is assessed by an approved centre & then verified by City & Guilds experts.

Successful candidates are also granted appropriate post nominals (LCGI, AfCGI, GCGI or MCGI). A piece of evidence may be used to cover more than one of the standards. The standards can be met collectively and holistically, rather than one by one.
