What is the Employer Champion programme?

Support your science workforce

The Science Council’s Employer Champion programme provides a package of support for employers that have made the commitment to support their scientific staff to become professionally registered.

As part of the commitment Employer Champions agree to a range of actions including to:

  • Champion the value of professional registration among internal stakeholders and encourage other stakeholders to invest in professional registration.
  • Ensure that staff have access to continuing professional development opportunities, which enable them to achieve and retain professional registration.
  • Support staff to join the most suitable professional body for their role.
  • Formally recognise staff who have achieved professional registration.

The Science Council will support you by:

  • Publicly promoting the relationship on our website and in other materials, including PR opportunities and social media engagement.
  • Providing resources and templates to support activities linked to professional registration.
  • Actively supporting staff that are registered to maximise the value of their professional body membership, meet the Registrant CPD requirements and adhere to their codes of professional conduct.
