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.

Professional Awards

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.


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

Young Statisticians

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.
