IFT Academy

IFT plans to encourage and support people who are committed to Turnaround and Transformation as a career choice. By so doing, we aim to professionalise and increase the pool of talent available to deploy in situations where urgent, profound and radical change is required. 


Our Members

The IFT is the only turnaround and transformation organisation to insist on rigorous accreditation for practitioners. We have an array of professional development and high quality services, which underpin our competitive advantage. 

Why is IFT Different?

IFT accreditation is a professional status that you can’t buy. Professionals are regularly appraised and the annually renewable Practising Certificate, with its enhanced CPD requirement and independent audit, is a means for Turnaround Professionals to assess and continually develop personal performance.
