WAMITAB Waste and Resource Management Qualifications

Waste and resource management activities are increasingly being recognised as a priority for today’s society as there is increasing emphasis on minimising waste, extracting greater value from waste through recycling and producing energy from waste.

The economic value of diverting waste away from landfill has been recognised by the Government as an important approach for improving environmental and economic outcomes. The Government has therefore set the target for the whole of the UK to recycle 50% of household waste by 2020 and has increased its recycling rate faster than any other EU country.

We are pleased to provide a range of qualifications, apprenticeships, training programmes, routes to industry employability programmes and resources to those working within, or retraining to work within the resource management sector. These qualifications include:

Introductory and Pre-employment

These qualifications develop the basic knowledge and skills required by employers in the waste management industry. They are ideal for new entrants, the long-term unemployed and individuals working in the wider waste supply chain.
