Attribute Achievement formThe formThis form must be used to record how you’ve achieved the ICE member attributes if you are applying for a:▪ career appraisalDemonstrating competence in the member attributesTo become a member of ICE you must have had responsible and relevant experience at a level such that you can demonstrate the relevant attributes.Attributes 1 and 2 relate to your fields of work as indicated in your application form. You must demonstrate a sound understanding of core engineering principles in those fields. Your level of attainment of attributes 3 to 9 will be assessed with regard to their relative importance within your fields of work.Each attribute comprises a range of activities or sub-attributes. You should make sure you cover all the necessary sub-attributes for the grade you are applying for.In order to fulfil your obligation to society as a professional civil engineer and to meet the requirements in relation to health, safety and welfare legislation, you must have a sound knowledge and understanding of the construction process (1), as well as the activities connected to it. You must have an appreciation of risks arising as a consequence of your actions, and be able to identify and manage those risks. If your role is involved in the construction process, site experience will ordinarily be required.(1) The construction process includes the conception, design, construction, commissioning, maintenance, decommissioning, removal, management and procurement of civil engineering works.Attribute achievement formHow you demonstrate the achievement of attributes at ability level is the most important part of the Career Appraisal.The attribute achievement form is used to record how you’ve achieved this for the level of membership you’d like to apply for. The form gives detailed advice on how to demonstrate the attributes. Typically, we would expect to see between four and six examples of each attribute at ability level and we have set a limit of 27 pages for this section of your application.The final page of the attribute achievement form should be signed and dated by your mentor. If you don’t have a mentor, you can sign the form yourself.AppendicesAppendices help to show the assessors examples of your work and the extent of your experience. Please reference them in your attribute achievement form, when referring to your appendices. The appendices should contain no more than:• Three drawings, which should be legible when printed at A3 size and relevant to your attribute statements• Twelve A4 sides of additional information, including any relevant calculationsAs a prospective professional civil engineer, you must have a sound knowledge and understanding of the construction process and the activities connected to it. You must also be able to identify and manage risks to everyone engaged in the process. If your experience includes the construction process, site experience will ordinarily be required.Writing your statementsYou’re responsible for explaining how your experience meets the required standard within each of the relevant attributes, based on the relevant sub-attributes, for the grade of membership for which you are applying.For example: attribute 5, Commercial Ability, you will be expected to demonstrate that you have some experience in both the contractual and financial aspects of this attribute.You should consider the following points when preparing your attribute evidence:• Write in the first person – for example: “I worked on the development of a solution to the bearing failure”• For each attribute, give examples from your experience, showing the responsibility you had on a given project• Be specific and relevant in the examples within each attribute, using clear technical language, describing accurately what you did and why• Make sure you show how you’ve taken responsibility – for example: “My decision was based on my evaluation of the bridge assessment. I took responsibility for the decision to conduct the repairs using a temporary road closure at night rather than a reduced lane speed. The primary reason for my decision was the improved safety that could be achieved by a road closure”.• Focus on your personal involvement, the lessons learnt, and what you may do differently next time• Include dates, the project name and adequate details, to show to the assessors that your role on this project merits the grade of membership you’re seeking• Avoid generic statements within your examples such as “I worked for six months in the rail department using relevant codes and standards”. This is non-specific and doesn’t explain anything about your personal competence.You should aim to give multiple examples (typically 4-6) of your experience to demonstrate your ability within each attribute – i.e. that you have achieved the attribute in different situations, assisting others and working without supervision.Remember – you need to show the assessors that you’ve met the competence standard expected of IEng MICE grade. Competence is defined as the ability to do something consistently, successfully and efficiently.Security-mindedness and security clearanceYou should consider whether information in your application should be omitted or reduced in its level of detail due to security reasons. However, there’s no reason why this should detract from the quality of your evidence. If your application is affected by security issues, you should consider the following suggestions:• Make the evidence non-site specific – for example don’t state that the facility was on the Sellafield site or on the Hinkley site or that the asset serves a critical function to the site or country, or is or was vulnerable to various threats• Don’t state building numbers or names – it’s sufficient to say ‘nuclear facility’ or ‘nuclear store’• Remove site and building names from drawings or snapshots of models• Don’t include photographs or other images which reveal the location of buildings and facilities• Avoid stating, or showing in drawings or extracts from models, technical details (such as wall thickness) which may reveal security-sensitive informationIf you work on a security-sensitive project, we recommend that your organisation’s information security manager (and also the asset owners/clients) reads the evidence in this form and approves the content before submission.You should also familiarise yourself with the Engineering Council’s guidance note on Security (published May 2016).PlagiarismPlagiarism is presenting the work of others as your own. This means using words or ideas, for example, without the permission of the original author or authors, or without their acknowledgement. Plagiarism should be avoided at all times and this includes any reports, drawings and presentations that you submit.Here are some guidelines to help avoid plagiarism:• Don’t cut and paste material from others• Where you have directly quoted others, or the work of others, attribute the source fully and, where appropriate, use quotation marks. As a rule of thumb, material derived from others should be considered a quote, unless it’s assumed to be common knowledge – for example, standard equations that are in the public domainPlagiarism is taken seriously by the ICE. Should there be concerns about your submission, ICE will investigate including using plagiarism detection software. If this shows significant levels of similarity with any unattributed sources your assessors will be informed and you will be contacted by the ICE and asked toprovide an explanation.CollusionIn the context of your submission, collusion is any agreement to conceal someone else’s contribution to your piece of work. The guidance above equally applies to avoiding collusion.Plagiarism and collusion may lead to a ban on applying for membership or, for existing members, permanent expulsion from ICE Membership.If an allegation of plagiarism or collusion is made relating to your application for membership, your result may be delayed until an investigation has taken place.Data/Information/referenceThis application will be based on my company that I’ve registered as Sustain Quality Ltd in Nov 19 but started as a sole trader in October 2017. See the website:’ve attached some reports that I’ve made with collaboration of associates or sub-contractors and brochures about the business.You can also describe my experience related to opening and managing the business and all skills needed, which include management skills and also managing accounts using XERO accounting software, managing sub-contractors and dealing with clients (incl. contracts).See attributes for IEng: find below the information about it:
