Professional Standards in the Waste and Resources Sector

CIWM is committed to promoting professional standards in the waste and resources sector and supporting organisations and individuals to understand the skills and competences required to be a professional at all career levels. 

As the professional body in the sector, CIWM have established the competences required to be Chartered and support individuals to work towards these through a programme of structured learning and development.

These competences have been set out in the CIWM Skills Matrix. Developed by the CIWM Skills for the Future Working Group, this matrix outlines the essential knowledge, capabilities and practical skills required to achieve success in a variety of roles at every career stage. Whether individuals are taking their first steps into waste and resource management, progressing within the sector, transitioning into it, or re-entering the workforce, this framework provides a clear roadmap.
