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 now been extended to create the first version of the CIWM Framework of Professional Standards. Taking input from other professional bodies and working with a variety of organisations in the sector, CIWM has drafted a framework that provides a map of the competences required in the sector at four role levels.

We are now developing tools that will allow individuals and organisations to use the framework to support their learning and development planning; providing simple and effective tools to enhance your own and your team’s professionalism.

In the meantime, follow the link below to explore the framework and email to register your interest in staying up to date with development of the framework.
