Are you an active partnership practitioner?
Do you have what it takes to become qualified partnership broker?

Established in 2003, the PBA’s Accreditation Programme is for those whose professional focus is on building more effective, impactful and transformative partnering approaches in a systematic, principled and ethical way.
This programme is personalised to meet each individual‘s priorities and needs so they are enabled to derive maximum value from the experience. Applications are welcome from those working in partnerships or other forms of multi-stakeholder collaboration in all sectors, geographies, focus areas and contexts.
Achieving Accreditation involves a 4-month period of mentored practice with a highly experienced partnership broker, followed by a formal assessment of written, video or audio submissions  that will be formally assessed to ensure the highest standards are maintained

The accreditation programme is designed to enable you to:
  • Build your courage as a collaboration change-maker
  • Enhance your capability in adapting concepts, tools and processes to your own context
  • Become a more reflective practitioner
  • Connect with peers across the globe for mutual learning and support
  • Contribute ideas, challenges and experience to the emerging partnering paradigm
  • Achieve an internationally recognised professional qualification

This is for experienced practitioners not beginners, but there are now a number of routes to eligibility.
Want to know more? Go to Accreditation Brochure for Applicants and Accreditation Application.

Once accredited, you would be able to:
  • Join the PBA’s International Learning Network of Accredited Partnership Brokers
  • Apply to become a PBA Associate
  • Use this logo in your CV or email signature alongside any other professional credentials
