Many people have accomplished professional achievements and contributions which are not recognised through academic qualifications alone. The attainment of a professional qualification is the clearest way of demonstrating possession of a sound knowledge of the industry and a high standard of professional competence.
TI professional qualifications are acknowledged by many national governments, as well as by employers establishing that the holder has proved their ability to practice.
Licentiateship (LTI) – a good level of knowledge and 1 – 5 years work experience depending on route
Associateship (CText ATI) – a high level of knowledge and specialism in at least one area 2-10 years experience depending on route
Fellowship (CText FTI) – a major personal creative contribution
Submission is by application form, which is then assessed by a Committee of academics and industrialists and ratified by the Council of The Textile Institute.
