RSS Webinar Series

Tuesday 23 May 2017, 02:00pm - 03:30pm

Location online

Presenters: Sarah Barker (Royal Statistical Society), Paul Baxter (University of Leeds) and Apostolos Fakis (Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust)

The RSS mentoring scheme was set up in 2008, with the aim of providing help and advice to GradStats on how to progress their careers and document their professional experience and development, with the aim of making a strong application for Chartered Statistician (CStat) status. Over 100 mentees and over 50 mentors have participated in the scheme to date. 

Sarah Barker will provide an overview of the scheme and how it operates, including how to apply and mentor-mentee matching process.

Paul Baxter and Apostolos Fakis will give an account of their experiences from the mentor and mentee perspective, including how participation in the scheme has been of benefit to them, what challenges they have faced and what advice they would offer to existing and potential mentors and mentees.  

This webinar will be of interest to mentors and mentees who have already joined the scheme, Chartered Statisticians who are considering volunteering as a mentor and Graduate Statisticians who want to find out more about how the scheme could benefit them.

Dial-in details for UK and international users and the link to the web conferencing system are provided on this page
