Welcome to Network Know-how

As a member of your local institute council Network Know-how is here to support and guide you in the running of your local institute.

The site has been designed to mirror the key assessment criteria within the annual local institute assessment and covers governance, CPD, local engagement, communications, exam centres and events.

Each section highlights best practice and offers support which will ensure that your institute delivers the services required by members with ease such as CPD provision, social events and exam centres; whilst ensuring good governance is adhered to.
