Careers and Academic Liaison Committee (CALC)

Chair: Amanda Darekar

The Careers and Academic Liaison Committee (CALC) focus on providing events and content related to school and university activities. Through working directly with schools and universities, we provide information to individuals interested in careers as either statisticians or statistical programmers within the industry. 

Our activities include:

  • Developing and running interactive workshops for schools
  • Giving careers talks at universities
  • Attending and organising regional and national careers events
  • Raising awareness of general issues such as cuts to MSc funding and changes to A level mathematics and statistics curriculum
  • Working with other organisations such as the Royal Statistical Society (RSS)

We are always on the lookout for people to help with our initiatives, for example running a workshop in a school, giving a university careers talk or writing a profile about working in the industry. If you are interested in becoming involved in any of our activities and can spare even just a little bit of time, please get in touch with any of the committee.

If you have any careers related questions please feel free to contact us at


The committee meet 4 times a year to discuss current topics and agenda items.
