CIEH Leadership Programme
Take your career to the next level with the CIEH Leadership Programme.

Our proposal was based on the Phase 1 consultation last year, in which we asked you about the basic principles of what the process for achieving Chartered Status should be. We then published the outcome of this first phase of our consultation, including data from almost 1,000 respondents to our online survey.
Once again, engagement with the online questionnaire and online discussion meetings was generally very positive. However, the number of responses was significantly lower this time. I believe this is because people felt their views on the basic principles of what Chartered Status should be had been heard loud and clear during the first consultation, so there was perhaps less need or interest in the specific details proposed in Phase 2.
I would like to thank ACEHO, EHNI and EHW for their help in circulating the questionnaire.
A report on responses to the questionnaire is linked below, with the following key headlines:
Chartered Status questionnaire phase 2 responses report - Please note, questions with open text responses have not been included to protect privacy, but these have been taken into consideration in the overall findings shared here.
Below I have chosen a sample of responses from the questionnaire to demonstrate some common lines of thought that came through:
Alternatively, a few respondents were concerned about the work required of applicants:
All your feedback has been circulated to the Chartered Status review group. Their plan now is to work with some of our existing assessors to develop the proposal into a fully fledged pathway to Chartered Status.
This will then be presented to our Membership, Learning and the Profession Advisory Group for further discussion and then to the Board of Trustees for agreement.
We hope to be able to relaunch Chartered Status towards the end of 2023 or early next year.
Thank you once again for your participation in this process, I look forward to updating you on our progress.
