The Icon Accreditation Application is the main document you will submit prior to your assessment. It is used as the basis by which the Accreditation Committee will assess whether you are ready for assessment. Your assessors will also use it to help prepare for your assessment.
Through the application form candidates must demonstrate how they are working at the 'proficient' level across all of the professional standards and judgement and ethics criteria. This will be demonstrated through providing a write up of around five projects you have worked on, and will be able to discuss, and evidence at your assessment.
Before you complete your application form, we recommend that you review the Accreditation Handbook, along with the example application forms below. Please also consider attending an Accreditation Clinic to help you fully understand the accreditation process and to ask any questions you have.
The application form, handbook and all relevant documents can be found at the bottom of this page.
You may have heard of terms such as 'Stage One' and 'Stage Two' application form - since the introduction of the Pathway Membership category in 2020, the 'Stage One' application has been removed, and the 'Stage Two' application is simply referred to as the Accreditation Application Form.
