The Science Council is the central organisation that brings together professional bodies across the science sector. Set by the Science Council, CPD plays a significant role in achieving and maintaining Chartered Scientists status. Chartered Scientists must demonstrate two years CPD activity prior to application. Having gained the award, Chartered Scientists must engage in ongoing CPD in order to retain Chartered status.
The Science Council defines CPD as the means by which a scientist will maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge & skills, and develop the personal qualities required in their working lives. The Science Council explains that CPD requirements in the science sector are intended to encourage good practice and ensure, that learning is both planned and reflected upon.
