Nominations open for the Science Council’s CPD Awards 2019
Have you gone above and beyond to keep your CPD up to date? Think you have an outstanding CPD record? Consider nominating yourself for the Science Council’s CPD Awards 2019 which are now open for nominations.
The CPD Awards are designed to celebrate outstanding professional development in science. They celebrate the professional development efforts and achievements of registrants across the four Science Council registers: Registered Science Technician (RSciTech), Registered Scientist (RSci), Chartered Scientist (CSci) and Chartered Science Teacher (CSciTeach).
The awards provide evidence for good practice and continuous improvement. There are four award categories in total: one for each register.
“It would be fantastic if biomedical scientists and medical laboratory assistants once again demonstrated their excellence to the entire UK-wide scientific community as long established advocates of CPD and lifelong learning. The Science Council CPD awards provide a platform for self-nomination and I highly encourage our registrants to take this opportunity and continue the IBMS tradition of CPD award winners and commendations”
Christian Burt, Professional Support Services Manager, Institute of Biomedical Science
