Since it was formed in 1989, CIWM (WAMITAB) has evolved in line with the convergence between the sectors with a clear focus on promoting and supporting environmental sustainability. With over 120 qualification pathways and 70 quality assured centres, CIWM (WAMITAB) offers an unrivalled specialist network to support staff development.
We work directly with industry leaders to shape and deliver employer-led qualifications that provide individuals with fit-for-purpose skills for the workplace. Our values are underpinned by the desire to see every individual being given the opportunity to learn. By qualifying the workforce, we aim to embed a culture of safety and progression, making the industry more attractive as a career.
We are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting technical competence in the industry via regulated programmes, accreditation of in-house training schemes and on-the-job assessment tools.
In 2020, CIWM and WAMITAB announced the two organisations would integrate under CIWM – a move that is intended to strengthen the provision of relevant and fit-for-purpose qualifications, particularly for the resources and waste management sector.
In 2021, CIWM received recognition as an Awarding Organisation and End Point Assessment Organisation (England) from the educational regulators in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, marking an important milestone in this integration.
