Our latest book Becoming A Professional: New Ways of Entering the Professions is out now!
The book was launched in London at our Fit for Purpose Professionals conference on 25 April 2012 and author Will Hanson gave an overview of the findings presented in the book.
The book pulls together PARN knowledge on entry to the professions, focussing in particular on ‘new’ ways of qualifying. It is intended to support those concerned with entry standards and professional qualifications, as well as those tasked with the strategic consideration of recruitment and training of professionals into the future.
The content is based on findings from two research projects conducted in 2010 and 2011.
The first was commissioned by the now defunct Foundation Degree Forward (fdf) and investigated professional body views of Foundation Degrees.
The second was commissioned by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) which looked at the perception of Apprenticeships among professional bodies.
Additionally, this book builds upon research conducted previously by PARN about entry to the professions, following on from our books:
The book is £40 for PARN Members and £80 for Non-Members.
