As the only professional body dedicated to internal communication in the UK, we exist to help organisations and people succeed through promoting internal communication of the highest standard.

Our present and planned offerings at each tier of the IoIC Accreditation Framework are:

  • Part One – an entry-level Foundation-level Diploma of Proficiency in Internal Communication, accredited by IoIC and by senior industry practitioners including Southampton Solent University. Next immersion event: 20 October 2015
  • Part Two – an Advanced Diploma of Proficiency in Internal Communications accredited by IoIC and validated by senior industry practitioners. Next induction date: 6 November 2015. Next Advanced Diploma Pre-entry Exam: 4 September 2015.
  • Third Tier – A higher-level qualification in internal communications management that balances theory and practice. The Institute recognises and endorses the existing Kingston University Postgraduate Diploma in IC Management at this level.
  • Fourth Tier - the IoIC Advanced Diploma will be taken into consideration as a strong indication of potential suitability for:
  • The Post-Graduate Diploma and Masters Programmes in Internal Communication: Kingston University MA in IC Management.
  • The MA Strategic Communication at the University of Central Lancashire

Our accreditation framework is based on work carried out a few years ago when IoIC pooled thinking with other internal comms member associations to draw up the internal communication knowledge and skills matrix. Subsequent work by the IoIC has refined and updated the knowledge, skills and experience levels expected for internal communication professionals at different stages of their careers (downloadable PDF).

As the largest and longest-established independent body for internal communicators in the UK, IoIC is uniquely placed not only to raise the standards of internal communication practice but also to lead the changes within the sector as well.

Assessing your current skills and how they align with the IoIC Accreditation levels

IoIC now provides a series of independent industry-backed qualifications.

Our Foundation Diploma leads to an entry level qualification for IC practitioners.

Our Advanced Diploma is available for more experienced IC practitioners.

To find out the knowledge, skills and experience levels required for each level please download our Accreditation Level document (PDF).
