Description

Advertisement

This innovative new course is designed to equip those already working in the sustainable resource, waste and recycling sectors with the knowledge, understanding and skills they require to become effective business managers within their organisations.

It builds upon the sector specific knowledge and skills you will already have gained, e.g. through completion of the WRAP Recycling Managers Training programme.
Through applied work related academic study, practice based learning and experience you will be provided with the business management skills required of your sector in the UK, Europe or Overseas.

These skills are developed through modules which provide both a theoretical underpinning of the key principles of management plus a contextualisation to the specifics within the Sector.

The course is delivered online utilising the individual and group learning features of our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Assessments will have a strong practical and professional orientation and will enable you to develop a range of management skills relevant to senior roles in your organisation.

Additional course information
The aim of this course is to enable you to develop and demonstrate knowledge, understanding and critical analysis of the personal, managerial and organisational challenges of management practice within your Sector.

The modules will help you to:

* develop your analytical and reflective abilities as an independent learner and critically reflective management practitioner
* promote the development of your intellectual capability, personal academic and commercial skills and creative thinking helping you to generate original solutions to technical and management problems in an organisational context.
* develop insights, critical thinking and management skills through exposure to the theory and practice of business and management as it is applied to your sector
* widen your perspective beyond your immediate role and/or organisation
* enhance your employability as technically competent management practitioners
* respond to the shortage of senior staff with both the technical know-how and management skills needed in the modern sustainable resources waste and recycling sector.
* develop high quality senior staff who can help build a sustainable and green economy and help governments meet their national and international environmental commitments
