Endorsed Training Events

The Geological Society Training Event Endorsement Scheme is a service with benefits to both event providers and geoscientists. Applications are welcomed from the providers of short training events (generally from a half to several full days in duration); seminars with multiple speakers; and workshops, among others. Please contact us if you are uncertain if your training offering is suitable for this scheme.

For event providers:

· Endorsement raises your profile and boosts recognition within the geoscience community

· It advertises your event to Fellows and others who visit the Society's website

For Fellows of the Geological Society:

· The gathering together of approved events provides choice and quality reassurance in one place

· A discount of 10% on the registration fee for Fellows is a condition of application for the endorsement of external events

Apply for Event Endorsement

The Endorsement scheme now applies a more rigorous approach to the assessment of applications than hitherto, and is the principal reason for the introduction of a modest charge for endorsement.

Current rates are (from January 2022) £35 review fee, plus 3 years registration charge @ £30 per year, totalling £125, payable at the time of application. There will be a 10% discount for endorsement when three or more events are requested at the same time.

Each application for endorsement of a training event will be reviewed by two, or sometimes three, experienced assessors and a decision is usually reached within a few weeks following the receipt of details. Endorsement is valid for 3 years, subject to the receipt of satisfactory feedback from delegates. To apply for endorsement of your event(s) please download the guidelines and application form.

To discuss any queries about the Endorsement Scheme please contact Donna Prisley on +44(0) 207 434 9944, or email donna.prisley@geolsoc.org.uk.
