Professional Recognition

The Science Council’s professional registers recognise the range of expertise, knowledge and professionalism that demanded by the public and are sought after by employers. What is more, they stay valid throughout your career by demonstrating your commitment to your own development.

The launch of Documented Science Tech and Documented Scientist alongside the recognized Chartered Scientist award creates a framework of professional enrollment across the science workforce.

Enrollment is given by Licensed Bodies, professional bodies of the Science Council and consists of scientific knowledge, competence and commitment to high standards of professionalism. Whilst an academic qualification exhibits your achievement, professional registration captures your livelihood development and on the job learning alongside any formal qualifications.

It supplies recognition in its own right but also can be a springboard to recognition as a Registered Scientist or Chartered Scientist. The yearly enrollment fee is collected by the authorized bodies for the Science Council and is now £15.
