Continuing professional development

is critical to maintaining standards in any profession – and we believe that partnership brokering is no exception. Our Accreditation Programme is designed to set an international benchmark for those operating in partnership process management / partnership brokering roles.


What does accreditation involve?

Those who complete the 4-day Partnership Brokers Training successfully are eligible to apply for the PBA Accreditation Programme. The course is designed to:

  • Help individuals, organisations and partnership arrangements become more ‘fit for purpose’ so that partnering will be more efficient, innovative and impacting.
  • Apply the methodologies, tools and skills they acquired in Partnership Brokers Training with a period of mentored support.
  • Reflect on their strategies and the outcomes of their brokering interventions to become more self-aware and more competent in the many different aspects involved in being a partnership broker.


Programme structure

The course runs over four months. It operates with a firm but minimal structure. The intent is to enable you to grow at your own pace and style, with the guidance of your mentor.

The course is structured in three parts:

“Planning, meeting, reflecting, brokering, more reflecting, writing my logbook has all now become a routine. Having an external mentor was a unique experience that I have enjoyed. I have definitely matured as a professional as a result of the interaction”
