The value of being a Chartered Scientist
Having CSci status reinforces a sense of continuity between the research I carried out for my doctorate and communicating science, and makes me feel part of a wider scientific community.
How important is CPD in revalidating chartership?
The CPD required to maintain CSci is extremely important to me as every facet of my work requires a slightly different skills set which must be constantly updated. I find the structure of the CPD scheme I follow for CSci incredibly helpful when deciding what training will be most beneficial for me. I also feel a sense of perspective and achievement from the reflection and planning aspect of the CPD.
