iCeGS works closely with a network of associates. The network functions as an intellectual community for researchers and practitioners interested in career development and related fields. 

Associates are practitioners and researchers from a range of background who are interested in working with iCeGS in a range of ways such as teaching, research and policy and practice development. 

The associate network meets three times a year both face-to-face in Derby and online.
