CGL has launched a training programme aimed at geotechnical and geoenvironmental early-career professionals.
The environmental consultancy, CGL, has launched an in-house scheme for staff comprising tailored training and experience to gain the competences recognised by the Society for the Environment for the award of Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) status.
The CGL Chartered Environmentalist Training Programme will allow staff to achieve specific training objectives through structured learning and project experience to meet the requirements for CEnv via licensed professional partner institutions such as IES, CIWEM or IEMA.
The programme aims to enhance CGL’s training provision for pre-chartership staff and, with the Company’s Chartered Engineer and Chartered Geologist Training Programmes, which are accredited by the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Geological Society respectively, it forms a full suite of training and development for CGL’s geotechnical and geoenvironmental early-career professionals.
The full trio of all three training programmes is available to staff in CGL’s Godalming, Exeter and Harrogate offices. CGL says this will be supported by soft skills and strengths training “to allow development of the whole person”.
Future initiatives under development include a formal management training scheme in association with a major provider, and development of technical excellence in all staff.
Ian Marychurch, managing director of CGL, said: “Our suite of professional chartership training programmes is now fully formed, and the Chartered Environmentalist Training Programme will allow our environmental engineering colleagues the same support and structure enjoyed by our geotechnical and engineering geologist colleagues.
“We anticipate that the Chartered Environmentalist Training Programme will soon start to generate the next generation of Chartered Environmentalists, and add to the successes we have achieved with our ICE and Geological Society programmes.”
