TAKING THE NEXT STEP IN ENHANCING PROFESSIONALS' ACCESS TO THE IKT AND ITS DEVELOPMENT SERVICES THROUGH AN ORGANISATIONAL MEMBERSHIP PROGRAMME

NEW
IKT INSTITUTIONAL MEMBERSHIP


Since launching the IKT in 2007, we have accredited as Associate and Full Members, individuals who recognise that the field of innovation, knowledge transfer and exchange is either central or significantly related to their careers. The IKT has also offered Organisational Sponsored Membership. This product is now evolving and as such will become IKT Institutional Membership.

 

IKT Institutional Membership differs slightly to the old Organisational Sponsored Membership product in so much that the Institution itself can be a member of the IKT too. In doing so, the organisation can elect up to 10 employees to become Affiliate Members of the IKT. For more Affiliate members than 10, please contact us. For those organisation who already have full or associate memberships will receive 20% off the Institutional Membership fee for the year.

 

Our aim is to broaden the reach and accessibility of IKT membership, welcoming participation from individuals for whom KT is a valuable, minority or developmental interest, in addition to those for whom it is their role or career focus. As well as the explicit benefits of, for example, continuing professional development, current information, mentoring and networking, you may recognise the motivational benefits to individuals at a range of levels and roles.

 

Benefits of IKT Institutional Membership
As an IKT Institutional Member, your company will be confirming that the recognition and development of knowledge transfer is a key contribution to your organisation's success. For our part, the IKT will welcome your views and input on membership services and ways in which Institutional Members and the IKT can work together to enhance the benefit of the membership. We will also recognise and promote your organisation as an employer that takes a keen and active interest in the professional development of Knowledge Transfer.

 

Organisations are also encouraged to consider the IKT Quality Mark product to enhance recognition and standing within the KT community. There are financial enhancements for organisations taking out this as well as IKT Organisational Membership

 

Individuals whom you nominate as Affiliate Members through the IKT Institutional Membership route will be asked to sign up personally, simply providing their name, contact information and job title. It may be that some of your nominees could qualify for, or progress very quickly to full Member status, in which case we would ask them for additional information to comply with the IKT's existing professional membership criteria. Those applying for full Membership will be expected to complete the full application form.


Costs
IKT Institutional Membership costs £390 per annum payable on the 1st November each year. Those members joining during the year will have a pro-rata calculated charge until the next 1st November. For more information please contact us.
