Members of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors are members of a professional body which is recognised by the CIEA Royal Charter and which aims to spread understanding of, and good practice in educational assessment.

As such they sign up to a code of practice and follow the terms of the disciplinary code. We as an Institute aim to help members with their professional development, whether working in schools, exam boards or other settings.

There is a range of benefits associated with membership.

Membership levels

There are different membership levels and costs and these are set out here.

Membership is open to all, including people who are simply interested in the principles of good assessment, whether they are students, parents, NQTs, journalists, school governors, HR and training or accreditation professionals working in organisations or anyone else interested in good practice in assessment.

The ‘professional’ grades requiring accreditation proof are only open to those able to provide evidence of the relevant combination of expertise and experience. More information about what you need to do to qualify for those membership levels can be found in our membership information pack

Members automatically receive access to the ‘members only’ (My CIEA) section of the website, where there is useful information and tools to support good practice in educational assessment, as well as access to leading academic journals.
