The Society for the Environment (SocEnv) is an organisation comprised of professional bodies and learned societies, known collectively as Constituent Bodies. It aims to lead on the development and regulation of environmental practitioners and to be a respected voice in environmental affairs and sustainable development. SocEnv provides an inclusive platform in which environmentalists are able to debate the issues that will help society move towards sustainability. It encourages and supports its Constituent Bodies in the development and maintenance of the virtuosity of all their members, particularly those who are registered as CEnv.
The creation of the Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) qualification is a sign of a maturing environmental profession and of the importance that government, regulators and industry place on the need for a high level qualification that recognises excellence in environmental practice. It creates greater public and employer confidence in the work that environmental professionals do. This is a great step forward for the profession and a great opportunity for you, the environmental professional.
If you are interested in obtaining a professional qualification through IAgrE and are not already a member of IAgrE, apply for membership in the Affiliate grade and indicate which qualification(s) you are interested in.
If already a member of IAgrE, contact Alison 01234 750876 indicating your interest in professional qualifications.
A minimum of 4 years relevant work experience and qualifications is required for the award of the Chartered Environmentalist qualification. Don't have a degree? Don't worry.... experienced CEnv assessors can provide guidance on additional routes to CEnv, based on vocational experience.
