Hooray for Professions Week 2013!

The Professional Associations Research Network is proud to be supporting the UK’s first ever Professions Week, taking place from the 21-27 October 2013.

Our CEO Andy Friedman is excited to be attending a high-profile reception in the House of Commons on 21 October to launch what we hope will be an exciting week for the professional body sector.

A number of leading professional bodies have joined forces for Professions Week: 






The aim of Professions Week is to meet the following objectives:

  • To increase interest in becoming a professional among young people (14- 19) and to demonstrate the routes in to a range of professions.
  • To support those offering careers information and advice through targeting teachers, careers advisers and parents.
  • To increase visibility of the professional bodies in their role in helping the economy and in widening access to the professions with Government and the public.
