We’re pleased to announce that Lynsey has been granted the prestigious status of Chartered Statistician by the Royal Statistical Society, recognising her extensive training and experience as a professional statistician.
The Chartered Statistician (CStat) is the Royal Statistical Society’s highest professional award and provides formal recognition of an individual’s statistical qualifications, professional training and experience. To qualify, the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) requires an approved degree together with at least 5 years’ post-graduate training and experience as a professional statistician. Lynsey’s award recognises her experience gained during her PhD training together with four years working at the Met Office as a statistician. She was also able to demonstrate a strong and consistent commitment to continued professional development (CPD), another key criterion considered by the RSS in making the award.
Chartered Statisticians are required to abide by the Society’s Code of Conduct, and to adhere to their comprehensive CPD Policy. Each CStat is required to regularly renew their qualification to ensure that they continue to adhere to the RSS’s strict guidelines which are designed to ensure that chartered statisticians provide the highest level of professional service to their clients.
Guidance on how to apply for the CStat award is available on the RSS web site, but the Select team are also very happy to offer advice and guidance on how to develop and maintain a suitable CPD programme and to apply for the CStat award.
