Chesterfield businesses encouraged to enroll in low carbon courses – Destination Chesterfield


By Josh Marais

Chesterfield businesses are encouraged to enroll in a range of low carbon courses, which will enable organizations to prepare for the challenge ahead of meeting sustainability goals.

The free, fully-funded programs are delivered locally in partnership between training company Essential Site Skills and the Serco Skills Support for the Workforce program.

Courses are tailored and specialized for a range of sectors, including health and care, construction, logistics and office organisations. Participants will earn a Level Two NVQ Award in Understanding Carbon Awareness and Energy Management.

  • The healthcare-focused course will focus on the treatment of routine and non-routine waste as well as the principles of decontamination, cleaning and waste management in healthcare facilities.
  • In construction, course leaders will guide participants in the disposal of non-hazardous waste in the workplace and confirm the professional working method in the workplace.
  • During this time, logistics companies will be able to learn how to sort goods and materials for recycling or disposal in logistics operations.
  • Businesses based in an office environment will also earn a level two certificate in Understanding Climate Change and Environmental Awareness.

Catherine Storer, Executive Director at Essential Site Skills, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside the Serco Skills Support for the Workforce program to roll out these low carbon courses to businesses in Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.

“More and more companies are realizing the importance of sustainability and environmental awareness. Prepare your workforce to meet carbon emissions targets with our fully-funded carbon awareness NVQs. »
