STEM Graduates is proud to endorse the “working towards registered scientist” initiative that has been launched by the Science Council. The initiative will focus on the conduct, competence and professional development of early year’s scientists. For many graduates this initiative will be the first steps towards becoming a chartered scientist.
The Science Council is a membership organisation for professional bodies and learned societies across the disciplines of science. They are in a unique position, bringing together a range of disciplines and sectors to reflect the multi-disciplinary practice of science in today’s society.
They set the standards for professional registration for practising scientists and science technicians, independent of scientific discipline. Professional bodies within their membership are licensed to award their members who meet these standards.
You can read more about the Science Council and the available professional awards including the Registered Scientist (RSci) award on the website here. Keep a look out for exicitng content coming soon!
