Professional Standards

Professional Standards

The CIH professional standards build on seven characteristics developed, tested, and refined to enable you to think about your professional development needs and how you can contribute to the professionalism of your organisation and the wider sector.

Building on over 100 years of housing knowledge, we’ve worked with CIH members, housing professionals, organisations and employers, professional bodies from beyond housing and residents to identify what underpins our collective identity as a housing profession.

Integrity – Inclusive – Ethical – Knowledgeable – Skilled – Advocate – Leadership
