Middlesex University to offer new industry training course

Middlesex University are to offer a new recycling and sustainability training course, funded by the Wastelink Group.

The programme is likely to be a post graduate course that will enable those in the industry to gain the additional qualification while still working. It is also anticipated to attract those who work in businesses that now have a legal requirement to recycle.

Emphasis has been placed on the course being available nationally, and Middlesex University are seeking to broaden access through collaborating with the Open University.

Wastelink proposed the course after sensing a gap in the industry, and said it had received generous support and advice from leading industry experts, ensuring it will be tailored to industry requirements.

In 2004 it invited all UK universities to submit proposals for the programme, offering funding of up to £200,000. Fifteen universities submitted a variety of proposals for the first stage outline process, and three universities then submitted full detailed proposals.
