Chartered Geographer is the Society’s internationally recognised professional accreditation for geographers who use their geographical knowledge, skills and understanding in the workplace, no matter what sector they’re working in.
David Wood, Head of the Government Geography Profession observes that: “Chartership provides a great framework for geographers to work towards and guide their continual professional development as well as giving them access to a wider community of professional geographers across the country and the world.”
Encouraging your employees to achieve Chartered Geographer (CGeog) status is not just beneficial for them, but also for you and your business, as it helps you to:
Celebrate and profile the professional standing of your employees
Show that you value your employees’ professional experience and long-term development
Motivate your employees to undertake geography-specific CPD, complementing what your organisation can deliver
Ashley Parry-Jones, Director at WSP and Chair of the Society’s Professional Advisory Group said: “Chartered Geographer status provides independent reassurance, placing spatial data specialists alongside other recognised professionals.”
