Sustainable Recycling Activities Apprenticeship Level 3 at Team Wearside Ltd

Course description

With the drive to be ever more environmentally conscious the need to recycle is now a major part of day to day life. The ability to provide an efficient collection service is key to maintaining business growth.

The Waste Management and Recycling industries are rapidly changing in response to Government initiatives to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, and the associated emissions of greenhouse gases. New technologies and new processes are being developed that require the up-skilling of existing employees. In addition, the sector needs to attract new staff in order to meet the challenges set by the Government.

The Diploma in Sustainable Recycling Activities Level 3 qualification is suitable for people working in a recycling facility looking to accredit their existing skills and provide proof of occupational competence.

The apprenticeship consists of three core elements; Functional Skills in Maths and English, a Technical Certificate and the City & Guilds Diploma in Sustainable Recycling Activities.


To achieve the Diploma in Sustainable Recycling Activities Level 3, learners must achieve a total of 46 credits: 35 credits must be achieved from the mandatory units, a minimum of 11 credits from the optional units available. Two units must be from optional group A and two units must be achieved from optional group B.
