Professional development

As a learned society and professional body, we have a duty to ensure our members maintain and develop their professional skills. In doing so, our members strengthen both their career and the profession of statistics.

  • Members enjoy discounts to attend our popular short training courses that aim to meet the needs of both statisticians and users of statistics

  • We offer a range of professional exams, the fees of which are discounted for members. These exams can support you in your career and demonstrate your commitment to the profession

  • Fellows with a degree (or equivalent) in statistics and/or relevant experience are invited to apply for one of our two professional awards: Graduate Statistician or Chartered Statistician. Both are acclaimed worldwide as a benchmark for professional statisticians and bring further exclusive membership benefits

  • We pay particular attention to young statisticians, facilitating networking opportunities and providing online careers information and mentoring  to help them develop a career in statistics and data analysis
