Daily Feature ‘Skills Development/CPD’ sessions – Hosted by: Dr. Jonelle Harvey MSci MRSC – The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)

RSC Skills Development session:

Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) brings a major stake holding in the inaugural CHEMUK 2019 event, which includes a ‘2-day hosted Skills & Careers Clinic’ running on the show floor, and is both pre-bookable 1-2-1 consultations or available as a drop-in on the day.  Full details can be viewed on the CHEMUK website – covering both graduate scientists & undergraduate/postgraduate attendees.

Complementing this are daily 30 minute RSC-hosted ‘Skills Development/CPD’ feature sessions,  as part of the 2 day speaker programme

Sessions will be designed to cover the  journey of certification, and the benefits that accrue for both the individual and for organisations, in terms of driving performance/personal & organisational success.

Discussion will be given to skills development at each career stage, with a focus on the competencies that are required for various levels of professional qualification, ultimately leading to Chartership ensuring organisational success now and for the future.

Daily guest speakers, drawn from AstraZeneca  will discuss how their organisations have focussed on skills development , providing invaluable ‘case study’ insight to benefits accruing.

Abstract: 

Case Study – Royal Society of Chemistry and Astra Zeneca

Join our case study sessions and find out how Astra Zeneca have achieved accredited status for their internal company training schemes and discover their professional development best practices.

Royal Society of Chemistry accredited organisations nurture professional excellence and technical skills within their workforce. By investing in professional recognition and providing clear frameworks for development they demonstrate a commitment to employee progression. Covering a range of disciplines and career stages our registered and chartered awards can help all chemical scientists achieve their potential.

Find out how investing in accreditation, has helped Astra Zeneca recruit and retain talented chemical scientists, attract customers and display competence to regulators, and through achieving Chartered status, supported their staff to build personal confidence and professional credibility.

Each session will be followed by a panel Q&A, providing you with an opportunity to uncover how you could improve your own professional development and recognition or implement opportunities for your staff at your organisation.

If you are looking to develop consistently high professional practice standards across a range of technical and transferable attributes, join our keynote sessions.

Bio: As the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Professional Standards Specialist, Jonelle has an in depth understanding of the skills and knowledge required by chemical scientists at all career stages within our sector. She has successfully embedded professional development frameworks in a variety of well-known organisations such as AstraZeneca, BP and Jacob Douwe Egberts. Through this, she holds a detailed knowledge of the support available to employees ranging from early career technicians and apprentices, through to experienced and established scientists.

Managing the portfolio of companies that have achieved accredited status has equipped Jonelle with a range of practical examples of best practice that delegates of ChemUK can draw upon and implement within their own organisations to enhance the developmental support available for their own staff and enable them to achieve Chartered Chemist (CChem) status in the process.

Prior to joining the Royal Society of Chemistry, Jonelle gained her PhD from the University of Birmingham, studying the reaction dynamics and high-resolution spectra of small halogenated molecules using the Synchrotron Light Source at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland.
