CILIP publishes new guide to Professional Registration

Thoroughly updated to reflect the new requirements of CILIP’s Professional Registration, the third edition of Building Your Portfolio by Kath Owen and Margaret Watson is the essential ‘how to’ guide to producing a successful portfolio.

Reflecting on achievements and presenting evidence of enhanced knowledge and skills underpin many professional and educational qualifications. Building a portfolio is key to recording and demonstrating this professional development, and gaining official recognition in the form of Professional Registration qualifications.

Set out in a user-friendly format, and covering each element of a portfolio, Building Your Portfolio: The CILIP Guide is packed with examples, useful hints and tips, personal contributions from successful applicants, web links, and further reading to help you develop a top-notch portfolio. The role of the VLE, new submission routes including e-submission and the new route to Revalidation are all clearly explained. Kath Owen said "This is a practical guide, based on the experiences of candidates, mentors and assessors."

The book will be vital reading for all library and information practitioners working towards any of the three levels of CILIP Professional Registration (Certification, Chartership, Fellowship), candidates for Revalidation and those beginning their first job in the sector. It will also be useful for mentors, employers of library and information staff, students of library and information science, and others interested in effectively recording their continuing professional development.
