If you are already eligible for Chartered Geographer but haven't found the time to complete your application, join our five-week accelerator to focus your efforts in preparing your application portfolio. Please be advised that it is expected that you attend all sessions when registering for this course.
Clare Hadley CGeog and Brian Vinall CGeog (GIS) will lead you through the steps for preparing a strong application for Chartered Geographer. James Kendall (RGS-IBG) will also be on hand to provide practical advice about the application and assessment process.
Over the course of five 30-min Thursday lunchtime webinars you will learn about the different elements of the application, have a chance to ask questions, and be given a piece of homework to complete over the following week. By the end of the programme, your application should only need the finishing touches before submission.
Week 1 - (6 May 2021): Framework of Competencies, eligibility and registration
Week 2 - (13 May 2021): Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Week 3 - (20 May 2021): References and the application
Week 4 - (27 May 2021): CVs
Week 5 - (3 June 2021): Professional Self-Evaluation (PSE)
The accelerator is designed for professionals who are very close to or already meet the eligibility requirements for Chartered Geographer. If you are unsure, please send a copy of your CV to email@example.com for free and impartial advice.
This event will be run online through Zoom - joining details will be sent to registered participants ahead of each weeks event. Once you have booked your place at this event, please feel free to email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our speakers will be answering these questions and more during the course of the event.
This event is recognised by the Society as being suitable professional development for Chartered Geographer and may also be suitable for other professional accreditations.
