This Environmental Managment Course is a  Level 4 Vocational Qualification consisting of workshops, workplace assessments, mentor visits and portfolio building.

This ILM accredited course is designed to provide individuals with the environmental knowledge and skills necessary to improve the environmental performance of their organisation. The course also provides a basis for the implementation and maintenance (or continual improvement) of an environmental management system (EMS). This could be to a recognised standard such as ISO14001, EMAS or BS8555.There are no formal entry requirements but candidates must be in a position (employed or voluntary) to collect evidence of environmental management activities in line with the requirements of the NVQ Level 4.

The Environmental Management course will be delivered by an induction half-day, a series of half-day workshops and regular workplace-based assessment visits and guidance. The NVQ typically takes between 9 and 18 months to complete. We would recommend that you aim to complete in 12 months.The qualification is assessed on a “competent” or “not yet competent” basis. There are no examinations. All candidates will have support from a trained assessor who will provide advice on the collection of suitable information
(a portfolio of evidence) to demonstrate that the work performance meets the requirements of the NVQ.

• The individual will gain a nationally recognised qualification (approximately equivalent to degree level).
• The candidate’s organisation will have the opportunity to improve its environmental performance.
• The NVQ can be used as a foundation to build an environmental management system. If desired you can work towards certification to a recognised standard such as ISO14001, BS8555 or EMAS or continually improve an existing system.
• Candidates who achieve the NVQ have the option of a fast track route to membership of IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment).
