If you want to work at the top level of the profession of your choice, you will usually need a professional qualification. These are generally awarded by professional bodies and follow on from having completed a degree or equivalent qualification. However, more options are now available for non-graduate routes: something we focus on at Total Professions as we promote fair access.

We have information, advice and guidance about the professional qualifications you will need or can work towards to follow the career of your dreams.

We also have information on available funding, some of which comes from professional bodies themselves, and how to go about getting it.
