AD:uk Professional Fellowship Programme

The Arts Development UK Professional Fellowship Programme is now open for members to register completed professional development and training experiences and to be able to qualify for one of three AD:uk Fellowship classifications. We are aiming for the Arts Development UK initials to be ones that you are proud to have after your name and that membership will become a recognised benefit in the workplace and a trusted brand when applying for jobs.

 Corporate members of AD:uk can register up to 10 individuals from their organisation to sign up to the Professional Fellowship Programme. Individual members also have one place. There are three Fellowship bands: 

  • Associate Fellow status: for those being awarded over 50 credits in a calendar year
  • Fellow status: for those being awarded over 100 credits in a calendar year, and
  • Senior Fellow status: for those awarded over 150 credits in a calendar year.

 The programme operates by individuals completing an online questionnaire recording their Continuing professional development (CPD) achievement in each calendar year. Previous experience and qualifications will also be recorded as part of the assessment. You have until 31st December to register and complete your entry for this year. Credit points will be awarded for a range of different CPD initiatives completed, through services provided by AD:uk or by other organisations. The first raft of AD:uk Professional Fellowships will be awarded in March 2012.

 The Fellowship programme has been developed by G&M Associates and Business in the Arts NW, and has been funded through an Arts Council England grant. The programme is a result of a year-long consultation and assessment programme, and included consultation from a range of arts and cultural officers and senior managers in the local authority sector.

AD:uk intends to be the leading body that raises the profile and reputation of the work of its members and to have influence with policy makers and funders and a key role in training, developing and representing professionals working in the cultural and creative industries. Wherever you are in your career, AD:uk intends to help members to develop the latest skills, signposting them to relevant qualifications, helping them to learn more about arts development and making them part of a big community of respected professionals.
For further information on the programme and how to apply, please visit:  Please note that this is restricted to members only, so if you have not yet joined (or rejoined) AD:uk, now is the time.  Don’t miss out.
