    The difference is basically the verbs. "Ser" is "to be" in a permanent sense, "estar" is "to be" in a temporary sense.

    Ella está enferma (she was ill) temporary
    Ella es profesora (she is a teacher) permanent.

    Ella ha sido nombrada miembro honoraria (she has been given the title of honourary member) permanent.
    Ella ha estado en Uruguay 4 veces (she has been to Uruguay 4 times) temporary.

    I hope this helps.

    Ha sido uno de sus mas grandes logros
    Ha estado en uno de los primeros lugares
