Workshop 2 – Understanding standards, competencies and CPD requirements
Programme participants will be grouped according to the professional registration status they are applying for.
In these groups, they will work with the applicant support mentor to explore the Science Council’s standards for professional scientists, covering the five areas of knowledge and understanding, personal responsibility, interpersonal skills, professional practice and professionalism.
They will ‘unravel’ the Science Council’s competency framework and will be supported to reflect on how they are already demonstrating the competencies in a professional setting. There will be an overview of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements of professional registration.
By the end of the session, participants will understand the Science Council’s standards for professional registration, its competency framework and any ongoing CPD requirements.
The next programme will start in Spring 2022. Dates will be announced in January 2022.
