Professional self-evaluation

Chartered Geographer »The professional self-evaluation (PSE) is the most important part of a Chartered Geographer application. Each applicant should make an explicit case as to why they want to become a Chartered Geographer.

Content

The evaluation should:

  • Clearly describe all relevant geographical experience and knowledge
  • Clearly describe how you are applying your geographical skills and knowledge to your work
  • Show how this constitutes a case for Chartered Geographer
  • Demonstrate that you are advancing geography above and beyond your job description and everyday work requirements
  • Show a commitment to continuing professional development
  • Provide an explicit statement as to why you wish to become a Chartered Geographer
  • State how you will use the post-nominal in the future

Additional requirements

Your evaluation should also abide by the following requirements:

  • Typed
  • Maximum of 1,000 words in length
  • The evaluation should not just be an extension of your CV or biographical in style, instead it should be structured to address the points outlined in the content section above 
  • Applications that do not mention geography or Chartered Geographer will not be accepted
  • Information about travel and hobbies, not relevant to being recognised for professional achievement, should not be included
