Registered Scientist (RSci)

THE ASE has become one of the first organisations to receive a licence to award professional status under the Science Council’s new registers, Registered Science Technician (RSciTech) and Registered Scientist (RSci).

More about this news is available here.RSCi Logo

The registers, aimed at raising the professional standing of those working to advance science and its applications, will run alongside the prestigious Chartered Science Teacher (CSciTeach).

 The full criteria as approved by the Science Council is available.

There is a Standard route for those teachers that meet the specific criteria of 2 years experience, an honours degree in science and QTS.

If you are considering registered scientist status this is by far the most straightforward way to achieve RSci status! This will cost £25.

If you do not meet the criteria for the standard route you will need to complete a FULL application at a cost of £50.
