What does it mean to be
professional?
Being professional means being competent and skilful and
behaving in an ethical way. It means putting your client or
patient first, and acting in the best interests of the public or
society
Being professional means being dedicated to professional
development both of yourself and for those people who are
affected by your work. It is about being trustworthy, reliable
and committed

What is a professional
body?
Professional bodies are organisations whose
members are individual professionals. These
organisations seek to further a particular
profession, the interests of the individuals
engaged in that profession and the public
interest

How does a professional
body serve the profession?
Professional bodies provide codes of conduct for their
members to guide their professional behaviour so the public
can be assured of being treated properly
They may:
• Set and assess professional examinations
• Provide support for CPD – continuing professional development
through learning opportunities and tools for recording and planning
• Publish professional journals or magazines
• Provide networks for professionals to meet and discuss their field of
expertise
