New CPD Framework Steering Group Members

New CPD Framework Steering Group Members

We are now seeking to appoint five individuals to the Post Qualification CPD Framework Steering Group.

Building upon the review of entry and assessment to the Chartered Surveyor profession, RICS’ Standards and Regulation Board (‘SRB’) is establishing a Post Qualification CPD Framework Steering Group (‘the Steering Group’) to lead a review of RICS’ existing continuing professional development (‘CPD’) framework and potentially, post qualification recertification and/or assessment.

Chaired by Peter Smith FRICS, the Steering Group will operate for a period of two years, with a possibility of extension for a further year.  

The key objective of the Steering Group is to make recommendations for any revisions to RICS’ current CPD framework and potentially, the creation of a post qualification recertification or assessment programme (subject to consultation with the membership).

The Steering Group will be accountable to the SRB. The SRB is a global Board which combines responsibilities previously held by the separate Knowledge and Regulatory Boards. It is responsible for overseeing and upholding the profession’s standards through a global assurance and enforcement regime, providing independent oversight and a public-interest perspective across RICS’ standard setting and regulatory functions. 

The Role

We are looking for five individuals, three professional Chartered Members of RICS (MRICS or FRICS) and two individuals from other regulated professions.
