I have started to collect all the necessary information which is required my the IET in order to apply for the CEng.
However, I'm searching for templates and examples on what/how etc, in order to start completing the boxes from the ukspec ceng competence and commitment standards documentation.
I need some guidance and material because it is complicated for me.
Previous responses have included guidance on where to find advice and the support that is available.
Some specific suggestions (based on PRA and assessor experience):
Make sure you are fully familiar with UK-SPEC. Read the competency area requirements and examples.
Write a draft of your career history. You might use a CV to provide the basis but you need to reflect on your roles and responsibilities and consider how you can present the information as evidence of your personal UK-SPEC competency practice. The IPD Summary Form will also help guide you. Key points to remember - your application needs to demonstrate your personal understanding and engagement. There’s extensive support available. PRA advice can be invaluable if you are uncertain and the Professional Registration staff at the IET have extensive experience and understanding to guide you. Good luck.
Career Manager is a great place to start, and a self assessment will help you to understand where you have the competence and where you still need to develop. There is levelled guidance within Career Manager that helps you to understand where you are and where you still need to develop. As Julie mentioned, you can find Career Manager online at: www.theiet.org/career-manager and there is a video tutorial on how the self-assessment tool works at: https://tv.theiet.org/?videoid=11567
We also have regular weekly webinars available for members and prospective members to explain the process for competence assessment, development and applying for professional registration. These are scheduled on a weekly basis and accessible via: https://www.theiet.org/career/professional-registration/getting-help-with-your-application/professional-registration-webinars/. Initial Professional Development webinars run every Friday at 1pm. There are also a number of member services we review on these webinars including the IPD Service and mentoring which may be useful - you can also contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you some pointers so that when you are ready to apply, you can contact a professional registration advisor as Alasdair mentioned and get specific support.
The IET's Career manager will be able to help you - https://www.theiet.org/career/professional-development/career-manager/.
You can log everything, upload documents and you can use it to apply for professional registration.
There are no templates as such, just either a blank application form or Career Manager to start to input your text.
I would suggest starting to fill in some text to see how it goes, and then get in touch with a Professional Registration Adviser (PRA) - or in your case, perhaps an IPRA (International PRA) to discuss what you have done and make sure you are doing ok.
