CoTC WAMITAB Award

Are you aware that Albion Environmental is an experienced provider of Waste Management Qualifications?

We can assist individual’s in gaining an award which will benefit both themselves and their employer at a cost-effective price.

Whether you are new to the industry and wish to gain a qualification or if you wish to gain recognition of your knowledge and experience through a qualification, then Albion can assist you.

These qualifications cover a wide range of waste management processes from the storage and transfer of waste to the treatment of it. This would be for both non-hazardous and hazardous waste. A more detailed list of the qualifications can be found at our website (https://www.albion-environmental.co.uk/list-of-awards).

The WAMITAB awards that we assist with are suitable for a range of sites from a car salvage yard to a waste recycling site (https://www.albion-environmental.co.uk/list-of-awards).

To provide the candidates with as much assistance as possible, we have developed and refined our methods in delivering WAMITAB qualifications, which includes providing candidates with access to a web-based e-portfolio.

The candidates will then complete the award using our online portfolio management tool, Learning Assistant.  Rather than working with bulky paper portfolios, learners and assessors access a web- based e-portfolio that contains all their relevant course materials. Learners upload evidence to the system allowing those involved in the assessment process to plan, give feedback, assess, verify, and finally award the qualification. Candidates complete evidence summary sheets and upload these to be checked regularly online by their assessor remotely. This continues until the whole portfolio is completed and they have collected all the evidence.

Once they are ready the assessor will visit to complete an “on-site” assessment of each candidate and to check that the evidence produced is Valid, Authentic, Reliable, Current & Sufficient prior to reviewing the portfolio to complete the assessment. Achievement of this qualification demonstrates competence by the learner to operate appropriately and in accordance with employment requirements within the Environmental Services Industry.

The training will be delivered by one of our experienced assessors. To ensure the highest quality of training we ensure all our trainers have the following:

•  Training qualifications – SQA HN Unit – (F81Y 33) Planning & Delivering Learning Sessions to   Groups

• Chartered Institute of Wastes Management (CIWM) Membership

•  Qualifications and experience in the subject area being taught

•  Trainers will also often be vocational qualifications assessors and hold for example SVQ Level 4

Learning and Development (including the units A1 & V1) and hold relevant professional memberships.

If you would like to undertake an award with us, or would like further information please call 01292 610428 / email Kirstie@albion-environmental.co.uk.
