Join the 60,000+ community of IT professionals

If you have just completed the first year or two of your career in IT and computing, you may be wondering ‘what’s next?’ Join as an associate member to plot your next steps, connect with other professionals and take your development to the next level.


Connect with other professionals

We have over 150 different specialist groups and branches who meet regularly, either in person or digitally, to discuss the latest trends, host guest speakers and network with leading companies and thought leaders.


Continue your professional development

Every IT professional has a personal responsibility to keep their skills and knowledge up to date. Use our learning tools to enhance your skills and plot your progress on your own CPD plan in your secure member area.


Become RITTech registered

Professional registrations are an independent benchmark of your skills and competence against industry defined standards. The Register of IT Technicians (RITTech) is your first step on the path of Chartered status, and signals to your current and future employers that you’re committed to developing your skills.


Attend thought provoking events

Continuous learning doesn’t mean that you always have your head stuck in a book. BCS regularly host both physical and digital events, such as our award-winning Insights event where you can hear the latest thinking, challenge the status quo and be inspired on your career path.
