There are currently about 750 Chartered Geographers, ranging from GI Scientists, conservationists, planners, surveyors, environmental and economic consultants, civil servants, academics, teachers, military personnel and others. Chartered Geographer is an international accreditation, with more than 10% of CGeogs based outside the UK.
Framework of competencies
The Society has developed a framework of competencies to assist those looking to apply for and maintain Chartered Geographer status, in line with other equivalent professional accreditations. It is intended to assist individuals to understand how geographical knowledge, skills and understanding are applied in the workplace, and the range of evidence to include in applications. Some organisations may also want to use the framework within internal development structures.
