Katherine Goodsell has recently been awarded Chartered Scientist Status by the British Psychological Society.
CSci represents, a single chartered mark for all scientists, recognising high levels of professionalism and competence in science. There are currently around 15,000 Chartered Scientists working in a vast array of settings and across all scientific and related sectors.
Being chartered is the mark of professional recognition. Being a Chartered Scientist allows all scientists working at the full professional level to be recognised on an equal footing. It gives an assurance of current competence through annual continuous professional development (CPD) monitoring, and encapsulates the interdisciplinary nature of science in the 21st Century.
The standards of the Chartered Scientist designation are upheld by the Science Council’s Registration Authority, whose members are elected representatives from the Licensed Bodies and appointed experts from other areas.
