Seeing our mentor network grow and successful mentor and mentee relationships flourish is a clear benefit of the scheme. We’ve seen a shift in company culture, with greater emphasis on interconnectedness, supporting one another and working together as a team.
Effective mentoring is central to the success of your scheme. Those working towards CChem and CSci will need a mentor to help them meet the standards required. Use the resources below to help your mentors build their skills and keep them inspired.
Would your mentors like to develop their mentoring skills? If they are Royal Society of Chemistry members, they can join our popular mentoring scheme.
Helping employees reach chartered status
Employees working towards CChem will need to demonstrate the wider impact of their work (attribute E of CChem). In this section, we highlight some of the rewarding and fulfilling opportunities that will help your employees to progress their chartership.
Supporting the next generation
Inspiring the next generation of chemical scientists is one of the most rewarding ways in which employees in your scheme can contribute to the wider community (attribute E of CChem).
Work with schools, colleges or universities, supporting activities such as careers fairs, presentations and outreach programmes
I was invited to deliver STEM sessions for a group of girls in a pupil referral unit. They had become disengaged with science and wanted to work in the beauty industry after school, so I designed some sessions which focused on the science behind beauty.
There are lots of ways in which your employees can demonstrate the wider impact of their work and their commitment to the chemical sciences.
Become a member volunteer – volunteers are integral to the work we do as an organisation, influencing and providing the foundations for the networks, outreach activities and support that we offer
Accreditation scheme coordinators can apply to become an assessor for CChem, CSci, CEnv, RSci and RSciTech awards. Send us an email to find out more.
Achieving chartered status opens doors to new opportunities for professional development. Our careers team are here to offer inspiration and advice to help individuals with their ongoing professional development.
The RSC is a highly credible, world-renowned institution. To be able to work with them to provide professional recognition for our colleagues speaks volumes to the science we deliver. From conversations I’ve had with many of our external partners, it’s clear that they really value the professional awards we hold. It gives them great confidence in the work we do and that helps engage at many levels across industries.
Whether you have an existing training programme or want to start from scratch, we can help. We work with organisations of all sizes and accredit chemical science training at many different levels.
