This course will introduce you to Environmental Permits used in the waste and recycling industry. It is aimed at anyone working on a waste site that is operated under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2019, applicable to England and Wales only. An Environmental Permit is a licence to operate a waste site and is issued by either the Environment Agency in England or Natural Resources Wales. We refer to them throughout the course as the ‘regulators’.
The course assumes that your organisation holds an Environmental Permit already and does not include applying for one. You will be taken through all the elements of a Standard Rules Permit as an example, which you can then use to understand how your permit impacts your site.
We strongly recommend downloading and / or printing off the Standard Rules Permit SR2008 from the course materials tab to refer to throughout, or a copy of your site’s permit.
On completion of this course, you should be able to:
- Explain why Environmental Permits are needed for certain facilities.
- Understand the meaning of the term ‘Environmental Permit’ and be able to describe the different types.
- Understand which aspects of the site are included in the Environmental Permit and what the expectations are from the Regulators.
- Give examples of non-compliance and explain what the penalties may be.
- Describe how their role ensures compliance with their site’s Environmental Permit.
The course can take up to 8 hours to complete, including the final assessment, depending on prior knowledge.
Under section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, the Waste Duty of Care Code of Practice sets out your legal responsibilities for waste.
The Code of Practice applies to you if you produce, carry, keep, dispose of, treat, import or have control of waste in England or Wales. To comply, you must keep it safe, make sure it’s dealt with responsibly and only passed to businesses authorised to take it.
This course will introduce you to the legal requirements, how to classify your waste, how to complete the documentation and demonstrate compliance. By the end of the course you will be able to identify what wastes in your workplace fall under the regulations and manage them appropriately.
This course is for anyone working in an environment where hazardous waste may be present.
Chemicals, healthcare waste, electrical items and batteries all require special handling and disposal. So, by the end of the course you will be able to identify them and store, handle and dispose of them correctly.

Have you ever found a tender for potential work for your business and then ignored it as you have neither the skills or time to complete it? Are you terrified by the amount of questions and work required for an uncertain outcome? Or have you submitted tenders for work that you never seem to be able to win? Public sector contracts in particular work within the competitive tendering framework and you have to be in it to win it!
External bid writers are available and can complete this work for you – but they can be very expensive! The cost of writing and submitting a tender can only be recouped by the winning bidder (out of the work they have won), so spending large amounts on an uncertain outcome can be a gamble.
This course will take you through every stage of the bidding process, from the identification of opportunities through to contract award. It’s suitable for individuals who wish to pursue tender writing as a career, as a consultant or in-house. It’s equally suitable for organisations who wish to upskill their sales and marketing team to enable them to grab opportunities when they see them and to submit winning bids.
