We’re pleased to announce that the prestigious Chartered Statistician designation has been granted to Tom by the Royal Statistical Society, recognising his extensive training and experience as a professional statistician.
The Chartered Statistician (CStat) status provides formal recognition of an individual’s statistical qualifications, professional training and experience and is the highest professional award for a statistician. To qualify, the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) requires an approved degree together with post-graduate training and experience as a professional statistician for at least 5 years. Tom’s award recognises his PhD training together with four years’ subsequent experience at the Universities of Exeter and Sheffield as a post-doctoral research associate and as a statistical consultant for ATASS Sports. Tom was also able to demonstrate a strong and consistent commitment to continued professional development (CDP), 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 revalidate 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.
