Learning & Development Associates has today (29 July 2021) welcomed the launch of the new standards within the Level 5 Certificate in the Management of Water Production.
The standards within the ProQual accredited Level 5 Certificate in the Management of Water Production have been extensively revised and significantly updated to better support the Water Industry’s increasing focus on crucial subject areas and challenges including innovation, risk and resilience and Climate Change adaptation.
Learning & Development Associates (L&DA), has welcomed the new standards and predicts that more qualifications will follow suit with Climate Change continuing to change the way the Water Industry operates to ensure adaptation and resilience.
Two of the core themes of the Foundation-Degree equivalent qualification which have been updated include planning to comply with new Climate Change regulatory requirements and contributing to the production of a Climate Change adaptation plan to address the challenges presented by the climate crisis.
Climate Change is the biggest immediate challenge facing the Water Industry, with recent studies reporting parts of England are at serious risk of running out of water within the next 20 years. The hotter temperatures seen across the UK in recent years have further highlighted concerns from experts, with all Water Companies now focusing on the importance of Climate Change Adaptation.
We all realise that urgent action is required to achieve resilience to Climate Change and knowledge through education plays a key role in adaptation.
The Level 5 Certificate has been designed for those in senior roles across the water industry, including Operational Managers, Project Managers and Department Heads, and has an underpinning focus on developing technical skills and understanding of the management of water production to improve performance and encourage strategic thinking.
The qualification addresses the practical competencies required for the effective management of Water Production operations and in turn, provides evidence of organisational competence for both regulators and stakeholders.
