An important message from RCCP that everyone in the field are likely to be interested in.
Due to the national shortage of our workforce and the limited throughput of the new PTP entry-level training course, ANS have written to Prof Sue Hill CSO to ask for support with workforce planning and have recommended some actions.
A copy of this letter is available on the members section of the website by logging in and visiting the Newsletter page.
Peter Bill (Chair, ANS)
Yesterday morning’s edition of The Times (22 February) included an interview with Belinda about the science profession, Scientists ‘should take ethics oath like doctors’.
This was based on similar arguments put forward in a blogpost, which we originally wrote in response to the Ipsos Mori 2015 Trust in Professions research, but held back when the Times interview seemed likely to go ahead. We have also published this blogpost, If trust in science falls, society suffers, as the Times article will be behind a paywall.
This coverage is part of the Science Council’s work to increase the profile of registration and the need for it, winning the kind of opinion formers and policy makers that read The Times to starting to think about asking for registration when procuring or awarding research grants or commissions research projects.
Chief Executive, The Science Council.
Dear ANS member,
We are unfortunately experiencing some problems with the on line application process for CSci/ RCCP M level and we are currently suspending this method of application. Please accept our apologies for this. If you have started the process using the online based application, then please get in touch with either Kelly, myself or your mentor so that we can ensure that you have all the correct information needed to complete your form.
Anyone thinking about applying in the near future, please contact Jane Douthwaite at EBS who will be able to send you the necessary guidance and application form.
Applications are now open for the ANS standalone exams. Please click one of the buttons below to open the application form and read the instructions on submitting the application.
Please be aware that potential students should seek the advice of their work based assessor (WBA) before they register for the scheme.
ANS are proud to launch two new standalone examinations. They offer greater flexibility in the training scheme while maintaining the same high standards appropriate for the professional body.
A mentor will be assigned to all applicants to provide support in the development of the portfolio (containing work-based evidence). This is followed by a final practical competency exam.
The two new exams will be for EEG and NCS/EP and are individually driven and arranged as required.
...that some content on this site is available for members only? If you are already a member of ANS send me an email with your name, ANS membership number, town and chosen password and I shall set you up to gain access.
