Enhance your career in trusts and estates with STEP membership

The letters TEP add a degree of recognition for both potential employers and clients – they see that you have a real understanding of the issues you’re dealing with and that you take a proactive approach to keeping abreast of all the latest developments. Become a TEP by completing one of the STEP Diplomas or Qualified Practitioner papers (see Qualifications, below).

STEP also offers a number of Certificates to enhance you knowledge in a particular specialism. The advanced level certificates offer continuing education opportunities for experienced practitioners to enhance their knowledge of a particular specialism. Completion of one of the Certificates enables you to become an affiliate of STEP.

The fact that you have completed a STEP qualification shows a knowledge and understanding of trusts and estates that will be converted into practical, applied competence. Full Members of STEP are the most experienced and senior practitioners in the field of trusts and estates and are recognised as the experts to whom others turn to for good quality advice.
