The CPD Scheme
The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners (WCEC) is committed to raising standards within the Cleaning and Support Services profession, and encourages everyone working in the industry to actively develop their knowledge, competence and expertise. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an essential way to keep up-to-date with the latest issues and developments in the Cleaning and Support services arena; giving those who participate in the scheme a competitive edge over other practitioners and enhancing confidence and competence.
The CPD Toolkit is a self-administered method of identifying and recording learning. You are challenged to achieve a minimum level of achievement over a set period of time.
The assessment requirements for those individuals who already hold a chartered status within an alternative field do not require a full written submission. They will be required to provide evidence of their current Charter status then present to a panel of 3 individuals appointed from the CPR / Education Committee (and approved other individuals).
As with all other submissions these as detailed in Section F.
These activities will take place quarterly throughout the year.
Feedback will be provided by the panel.
Any applicant not achieving the required marks will be invited to resubmit once only within one calendar month.
Any further need for resubmission will require the candidate to reapply with the appropriate payment made.
