Please note that Advanced membership applicants must have an active NBE membership to be eligible to apply. You will not be charged to apply for Advanced membership. Your current NBE membership will be transferred if your application is successful. Advanced membership renewal is £55 per year.

You may feel confident in your current abilities, but as Advanced Membership represents a trusted and recognisable brand, this will give your employer and customers confidence in you and your work..
What are the benefits?
Being an Advanced Member:
What do I need to do?
You will build a portfolio of evidence based on your last three years' experience. Your portfolio will meet certain requirements, as stated in the Standard Operating Procedure. Once completed, it will be peer reviewed by a panel of Advanced Members.
Full details of the process and portfolio requirements are explained in the standard operating procedure.
Please read our Standard Operating Procedure here.
Please read our Constitution here.
Will I receive support?
Yes. Although the process is straight forward, we appreciate that you may require some support along the way. We can supply you with a mentor. Any appointed mentor will be an Advanced Member, so will have gone through the process you are about to begin. Their role is to support and guide you throughout your journey. They will not devise or complete work on your behalf. If you choose not to have a mentor, please remember we are always here to help.
