IRRV Membership

IRRV is the largest institution of its kind, representing its members in the fields of benefits, valuation, investigation, local taxation and revenues. There are many benefits to becoming a member of the Institute. The benefits of membership can be found on the link below.

IRRV Organisational Membership

IRRV Organisational Membership is more than just a badge. A benefit of being an IRRV Organisational member is that we listen to what they have to say and share ideas with our members. The IRRV participates in all discussions relating to the Government’s plans for our areas of professional interest. By belonging to a Professional Body, it gives an Organisation a direct voice in policy and makes their voice heard.

IRRV Distance Learning

The Level 3 Certificate Course is designed for those who wish to gain a professional qualification and further their careers whilst the Diploma Course is designed for those who wish to progress to senior positions and leads to the highest level of qualification ‘IRRV Honours’. Both these courses are delivered through Distance Learning.

IRRV Level 4 Apprenticeships

Now is the time for employers to engage the IRRV to deliver the Level 4 Revenues and Welfare Benefits Practitioner Apprenticeship. If you would like to start the eligibility / enrolment process, for new or existing members of your team, please get in touch with us ASAP.

IRRV Honours Qualifications

The IRRV Honours qualification is the highest level of professional qualification offered by the Institute. The scheme is for members: 

  • Students who have successfully completed the IRRV Diploma. -
  • Persons on the basis of their occupational ‘seniority’.
  • Who are employees of Governments (UK and devolved), their agencies and other public funded bodies.
IRRV Vocational Qualifications

The IRRV Level 3 Diploma in Local Taxation, Benefits and Advice is part of the national Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). It is a competence-based qualification – that is, it is not assessed by examinations but through fulfilment of work tasks. The units that make up the qualification specify the areas where workplace competence has to be shown.
