Update from the Science Council

CPD Case Studies

The Science Council is inviting BSSS Chartered Scientists to share their stories and has opened submissions for glowing CPD case studies to showcase on their website. With 2020 creating new unexpected challenges, the Science Council is keen to find out:

  • How were you creative in your approach to CPD? What worked, what didn’t?
  • How did online and virtual events help you and which ones did you attend?
  • Did your job role change during the COVID-19 pandemic? Did this open-up any different CPD opportunities?
  • How did you adapt to and overcome any challenges?

Find out more and submit your case study here.

 

CPD 2019

At the end of November 2020, the Professional Practice Committee were delighted to advise all BSSS Chartered Scientists that their 2019 CPD returns  had been accepted as fully meeting the standards for revalidation. CPD returns for 2020 are now open for submission and please download the new recording template and guidance notes and send to us by 31 March 2021.
