  • We’ve been registering engineers and technicians with the Engineering Council since 1972 and accrediting academic courses since 1989. We’re proud of our long history and provide our members with 50 plus years of highways experience.

IHE Membership

Join us and demonstrate your technical skills, qualifications and expertise to clients and employers. We offer membership types for highways professionals at every stage of their career.

Professional Registration

Becoming a professionally registered engineer demonstrates your high standard of competence and commitment. By choosing to register, you set yourself apart as an engineer with high standards and also demonstrate your commitment to maintain that competence in the future.

Academy Training

The IHE Highway Engineering Academy offers industry-led training in highway engineering. Through one of our specialist training courses leading to an industry-recognised Professional Certificate or Diploma, the HEA delivers the qualifications, skills and knowledge demanded by the highways industry which are in short supply today.

IHE welcomes new team members

  • Wednesday July 19, 2023

The IHE is pleased to announce that we have new colleagues in our London team. The latest additions to our staff team are Marcia Jones (pictured left) and Jane Wetton (pictured right).

Ms Jones has taken up the role of registration and qualifications officer vacated by Jessica Serra in 2020. Ms Jones joined the team on 30 May and in her new role will deal with all applications for Professional Reviews (PRs) and will arrange the process with the reviewers and candidates.

On joining the Institute she said: ‘I’m truly excited to start this new season of my working career at the IHE. I was head-hunted by my agency for this role and when I saw the job description and person specification, they were so reassuring that this role was for me I had to agree when offered the role.

‘At the time of writing, I’m about to start my fourth week and it has been a real positive experience to date. The staff team are great, patient and work really hard. How fulfilling that so many people across the country want to change/enhance their careers in the field of highways engineering and I’m finding the learning fascinating.’

Jane Wetton will be joining the team in late July and will take up the role of membership officer taking over the role currently undertaken by Julie Clark when she retires later in the year.

Ms Clark has worked for the Institute for nearly 40 years and has been a true and loyal servant of both the Institute and its members over her time at the IHE and will be sorely missed.

She will be working with Ms Wetton until the end of the year, passing over the reins to her. As many members know, the membership officer’s role is important in dealing with all queries and matters related to membership of the organisation.

Ms Wetton commented: ‘I am thrilled about starting my new position with the IHE. Stepping into this new role gives me the opportunity to tackle fresh challenges and engage with members from diverse backgrounds. I look forward to learning from different perspectives, exchanging ideas, and collectively working towards the shared goals of the IHE.’

We are sure you will join us in extending a warm welcome to both as they embark on this new journey with us, while also wishing Ms Clark a long and happy retirement following her 40 years of dedicated service to the Institute. We are confident that the skills and experience of our two new members of the team will contribute to our collective success.
