Individual Recognition Process

What is it ?

Individual Recognition is the process by which an individual who does not have a recognised degree level qualification can apply to be a registered member of the CLD Standards Council for Scotland.

What does an Individual Recognition application involve ?

Applicants will be expected to demonstrate that their education, training and experience has equipped them to a standard comparable with professionals who meet the specified criteria.

The applicant must provide evidence of this on a written application supported by a professional reference and there will also be a panel interview via teleconference.

Further information on the process and evidence required can be found in our Guidelines for Individual Recognition Process document.
