Certified Naace Professionals (CNP) - Join us on the Naace Stand, J42, for the opening of CNP to a new cohort on Friday 14 January 2011 at 3pm

Naace will today open its doors to admit new members to the Certified Naace Professionals (CNP) scheme.

The Certified Naace Professional scheme, which was launched in March 2010 to a pilot group of forty Naace members, meets the needs of many of those working with schools and the wider education community looking to validate their expertise and experience as professionals.

Since March 2010 the CNP scheme has been closed to new entrants and that has all changed from today. Naace has received hundreds of expressions of interest in the scheme and now enrolment has been opened once more.

The CNP scheme is designed for people who have a leadership role in advancing education through ICT. This applies to:
* Advisers and consultants in LAs, independent providers or commercial organisations
* School-based Strategic Leaders of ICT
* School-based Subject-Leaders of ICT.

It is designed to promote and recognise excellent practice in initiating and leading ICT developments in education. Full details of the scheme and how to enrol are available on the dedicated website at

Incoming Naace Chair, Rachel Ager, comments ‘We are delighted with the interest in and the appetite for the Certified Naace Professional Scheme. This is a rigorous scheme that will provide both recognition of an individual’s achievements as well as offering recognised quality assurance for employers and clients of consultants. We hope that over time this scheme will add credibility to our profession and assist in advancing education for our learners which is, after all, our mission in Naace.’
