The correct contract is an essential part of every freelancer's toolkit. Not only do they outline the wants, needs and expectations of the parties, but they also provide a legal framework within which these will be achieved; and a back up should legal intervention be required. Contracts provide a formal definition of the business relationship between the freelancer and agency or direct client.
Our guides cover everything from setting up a company, ways to win work and, importantly, how to ensure you get paid; packed with real-life case studies from those who know what you're going through. We are constantly creating member-only guides to help you flourish in your self-employed business.

Training and professional development are increasingly important in this ever-changing world. As technology and business advances, it is essential that you keep your skills and knowledge up to date to maintain a competitive advantage. We know that in the past freelancers have been less likely to engage in training due to costs and lack of flexibility, which is why IPSE has launched IPSE Academy, IPSE’s learning hub.
