The scheme is open to new recycling officers who have worked in local authority recycling for less than five years, with a place available for each English region, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
On offer is attendance to the annual LARAC conference, accommodation and travel costs, with scholars able to attend the National Recycling Awards and Member’s day free of charge.
LARAC chairman Lee Marshall said: “The additional benefit of the programme is that the conference is accredited by the CIWM and also provides two training days towards Group 2 of the institution’s graduate training programme or 12 hours of continuing professional development.”
Details of the application procedure can be found at www.larac.org.uk. The LARAC conference will be held in Bournemouth on November 14-16.
