IFST secures a further licence from the Science Council

We are pleased to announce that we have secured a further licence from the Science Council to award Chartered Scientist (CSci), Registered Scientist (RSci) and Registered Science Technician (RsciTech) status for the next five years.

Professional recognition and improvement lie at the heart of everything we do at IFST. With an ever-growing range of possible career development pathways within the food sector, it is now more important than ever to be recognised by a professional, independent body.

Ruth Ashaye, IFST’s Registration and Assessment Officer said: ‘We are delighted to be working again with the Science Council in offering professional registration to the food science and technology sector. Professional registration provides an opportunity to showcase individuals’ knowledge and expertise, together with an ongoing personal commitment towards continued self-improvement in your professional life.

Here at IFST we believe that the many facets of CPD ensure that professionals can be empowered to progress their own careers and, through reflective practice, can positively impact their roles.’
