CILIP Professional Registration - Library Support Group: KM Chartership

Professional Registration - Knowledge Management Chartership

CILIP is working with a group of leading international Knowledge Management practitioners to launch the first Professional Registration in Knowledge Management backed by Royal Charter. The scheme enrolled a pilot
cohort in Q1 2019 and has recently invited a second cohort of candidates to enrol.

Why become a registered KM professional?

Chartership and professional registration offer a range of benefits for you as a KM practitioner:

  • Recognition of your skills and experience
  • Validation of your professional status by a globally-recognised organisation
  • Differentiation from other KM practitioners in the field
  • A seal of approval for employers and clients

How is CILIP Chartership for Knowledge Management different to CILIP Chartership?

Whilst the framework for CILIP Chartership for Knowledge Management is very similar to that for CILIP’s general Chartership, it is specifically designed for Knowledge Management (KM) practitioners. For KM Chartership you will need to be working, or have had a recent body of work, in a Knowledge Management role.

Candidates are required to undertake their self-development and answer the three criteriain the evaluative statement with a strong focus on KM; in particular,the KM skills that align with BS ISO 30401: 2018 Knowledge Management Systems Requirements

What does Chartership involve?

There are three key elements to achieving Chartership:

  • You’ll need to show how you have used the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB) for Knowledge Management to examine your skills and knowledge and identified areas for development based on improving your performance in your current role or for future roles. Once you’ve taken steps to develop these skills you’ll be assessed on how you’ve used your new knowledge.
  • You’ll need to consider your organisation’s mission, aims or objectives and evaluate your service’s performance against these. You’ll be assessed on your ability to identify areas for service improvement and the recommendations you make to close the gap between current and ideal practice.
  • Finally, you’ll need to demonstrate how you enhance your knowledge of the wider professional context and reflect on your current areas of interest.

What Should Be In Your Portfolio

Your portfolio needs to be submitted using the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The structure and layout is flexible: you can use whichever style you prefer, but you must make sure that it is clear and easy for the assessors to navigate and assess.

A submission must consist of:

  • A reflective evaluative statement (a maximum of 1,000 words in length)
  • Supporting evidence pieces
  • The completed online PKSB self-assessment form (available from the CILIP website) - includes 2 rating columns: one from the start of the process, one from the end
  • A Mentor Completion form for Certification and Chartership Candidates. Fellowship candidates provide two letters of support for their application, one of which should be written by their mentor.
  • A copy of your  CV
  • An annotated job description for your current role

You can upload content and assemble it into a submission in the CILIP Portfolio side of the Virtual Learning Environment. This can then be shared with your mentor before you submit so they can see your portfolio in full before it is sent in for assessment.
