We recognise that a number of our members once graduated will move around the country on graduate placement schemes or re-locate for other various reasons. We have been working with a group of IFST members in their first three years after graduation to find out how we can help our members and their early career development.
Our Committee member Belinda Ashong is kindly leading this initiative for our region. If you are interested in getting more involved, please get in touch. Please note that you need to be an IFST member.
We value the important contribution that volunteers bring to the work and life of the Institute. Without the contribution of the volunteers who serve on committees, branches and special interest groups, we would find it difficult to achieve the strategic priorities set out by the Board of Trustees. The Impact Award is an opportunity for volunteers to showcase an innovative activity which has been undertaken which meets the following criteria.
- Is new and has been undertaken in the last 12 months which delivers measurable impact to any/any/all IFSTs strategic priorities, or
- Is an existing activity which has undergone an adaptation or change in order to deliver an enhanced impact linked to any/all of IFSTs strategic priorities, and which
- Is scalable and sustainable.
