Recognising your excellence: A recap of the GSE Professional Recognition Week

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Blog Series, Learning & Development

GSE Professional Recognition Week

The GSE Professional Recognition Week has come to an end, thank you so much to all who attended. Professional Recognition Week provided a space to introduce the GSE Professional Recognition Offer to our GSE Members who include a wide range of science and engineering specialists across government.

What did attendees say about our Recognition Week webinars?

  • “Really useful session – Answered all my questions”
  • “There has been a huge amount of interest ahead of this week and it did not disappoint!”
  • “Really well run and informative!”
  • “As a Science and Engineering Fast Streamer it was good to have access to this opportunity, allowing me to start thinking about where professional recognition could take me.”

As a reminder, the Government Science and Engineering (GSE) Profession considers professional recognition as any form of recognition from a professional organisation, be that as a member, a registered scientist, technician, incorporated engineer or becoming fully chartered. You can find out more about the benefits of Professional Recognition in our previous blog Your next step: The importance of Professional Recognition, which includes perspective from Dame Angela McLean, Government Chief Scientific Adviser.

Partner professional organisations

The GSE Profession would also like to give a big thank you to our partner professional organisations who delivered bespoke introductory webinars on their organisation's specialist areas.
