CIWM offers valuable end-point assessments for resource and waste apprenticeships that allow your organisation to unlock future talent.

End-point assessments for apprenticeships -

Apprenticeships provide long-term training to individuals who have the potential to benefit the sector and your organisation. Whether you’re an employer or training provider, CIWM delivers learning and development initiatives that strengthen the skills and capabilities of your future employees, and that can support your apprenticeship programme delivery.

If someone has just left education or is seeking a change in their career, CIWM is committed to helping individuals understand more about how they can access resource and waste management training and navigate how it works.

Apprenticeships are available at 6 levels from the equivalent of a GCSE up to a master’s degree, and some also include additional qualifications. Most apprenticeships last 12 months; however, some, such as degree apprenticeships, can take up to five years.

CIWM offers impartial end-point assessments (EPAs) for resource and waste apprenticeships that assess a candidate's skills, knowledge and behaviours against the apprenticeship end-point assessment plan. EPAs are the final stage of an apprenticeship and if passed, lead to apprenticeship certification.

The benefits of resource and waste apprenticeships -

Changes to apprenticeships and the introduction of a levy, paid by all organisations in the UK with a wage bill of more than £3m, has generated greater interest in apprenticeships than ever before.

Hiring an apprentice is a practical way to nurture talent that benefits the long-term future of your organisation. Investing in apprenticeships is a cost-effective solution that allows you to develop a motivated, skilled and extensively-qualified team.
