Education History

This section is for you to tell us of any professional qualifications you have achieved that are relevant to the role you are going into.  By professional qualifications, we mean a qualification set by an independent, official society or organisation in line with its charter that is recognised in your industry.  For example, this could be the PRINCE2 Project Management Professional award via APMG or you could be a Chartered Accountant via the ICAEW.  Academic qualifications studied through universities or colleges should be entered into the Education section.  Please contact us using the Contact Us page should you be unsure of the qualifications we need to know about.

Please click ‘Add Professional Qualification’ to enter your details, and ‘Add’ once you have done so.  You can edit the information you enter by clicking on the name of the qualification in the list.  Please note that once you have submitted your details to us, you cannot make any changes.


Education

The Education section is the chance for you to tell us about the qualifications you have achieved.  Most often we need to only know about your highest achievement, so if you have both a degree and a postgraduate qualification, we need to know about the postgraduate qualification.  The sentence at the top of the page will tell you exactly which qualifications we need to know about.  Please note that it could also be that you have been in full time education during the period of time we are screening your employment history for.  In this case, please enter the details here.
