SQP conversion for SiLCs
All registered SiLCs may become Suitably Qualified Persons (SQP) under the NQMS by passing a short Conversion Exam. Click here to go to the Conversion Exam page.
The National Quality Mark Scheme was launched in 2017, and identifies the need for professionals in the industry to become Suitably Qualified Persons (SQP). SILC have been nominated the awarding body for SQPs. SiLC is able to qualify you as an SQP by two routes. If you are already a SiLC, you may take a Conversion Exam, which tests your understanding of the scheme and the policies and guidance of the planning legislation in the UK. This conversion exam can be accessed from the link above. If you are not a SiLC, then you may apply to become either or both a SiLC and an SQP by a process of application, suitable chartership or membership of Professional Institutions, open-book exam and interview. The SiLC register operates this application and exam process. More details are provided in the tab above “Interested in applying?”
The scheme is administered by CL:AIRE and has been set up by the Land Forum. More details are available on how the scheme works and how you go about registering for the scheme and submitting declarations can be found at www.claire.co.uk/nqms
