APSE is delighted to welcome WAMITAB to the APSE Approved Partner scheme.
WAMITAB is an awarding organisation and charity that develops qualifications for those working in resource management and recycling; cleaning and street cleansing; facilities management and parking from operative through to management level. With over 120 qualification pathways and 70 quality assured centres, WAMITAB offers a comprehensive specialist network to support staff development. Additionally WAMITAB is on the register of End Point Assessment Organisations for Waste, Metals FM and Environmental skills providing employers with reassurance that assessments will meet the standards.
WAMITAB’s Chief Executive Chris James said, “ in common with APSE, we are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing individuals with fit-for-purpose skills for the workplace. Looking ahead, we understand that local government is facing some very serious challenges. Through this partnership, WAMITAB is eager to collaborate with APSE to make sure councils across the UK are well-equipped with the skills and qualifications they need for the future.”
APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien added, “As we head into a new financial year, local authorities need to take stock of the skills their frontline workforce and managers will need over the next 12 months to deliver the best in public services. Too often training is seen as an ‘add-on’ to services but it is in fact a vital means to planning for future service delivery. WAMITAB understand how integral staff development is to maintaining a quality service. We are delighted to welcome them to the APSE family.”
Since it was formed in 1989, WAMITAB has evolved in line with the convergence between the sectors with a clear focus on promoting and supporting environmental sustainability. WAMITAB plays a key role in ensuring employees across the waste and resource management industry have the necessary skills and competence to introduce and maintain sustainable waste management practices for the benefit (and safety) of individuals and the public.
