BCS membership for CCP Scheme applicants

As part of our CCP Scheme we are providing applicants with a year's membership of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.

Access to membership for a year offers you the experience of belonging to the leading professional body for IT. Membership can help support you through your CCP Journey and provides access to benefits which include:

Career development
To plan and track progression, members can use our Personal Development Plan (PDP), the CPD portal and gain full access to Browse SFIAplus, the online tool that allows them to explore the industry framework for IT skills, training and development, as well as post nominal letters.
Top people, great ideas and the latest thinking locally, nationally and online - our global networking opportunities are unrivalled and include branches, specialist groups and the Member Network.
Knowledge and best practice
From the latest industry news to our massive online library, the Institute’s information services keep members up to date with best practice, and at the cutting edge of IT.
Exclusive discounts and offers
Adding even more value to membership, our discounts and free services enable members to enjoy savings both at work and at home.
