Module overview

The Sustainable Manufacturing module will give your people the fundamental knowledge necessary to contribute and co-ordinate initiatives to reduce your company’s environmental impacts, associated costs and other corporate risks. It will provide individuals with practical skills needed to understand environmental management and lead improvements, reducing costs and boosting your reputation.

To achieve the qualification individuals must undertake a practical improvement project to demonstrate what they have learnt. Typical examples could lead to energy reductions, increased recycling, lower raw material costs or reduce corporate risk. The course is ideal for those new to environmental responsibility or who need formal recognition of their environmental knowledge.

The results
On completion, individuals will understand:
  • What sustainability means in real terms to a manufacturing business.
  • How to assess the environmental impacts of your organisation and evaluate renewable materials, energy management, compliance, waste management and logistics.
  • How current and future legislation could affect your organisation.
  • How to implement an environmental management system, e.g. ISO14001.
  • How to present and communicate environmental concepts to management and colleagues.

This will help your company to:
  • Cut energy costs at the same time as reducing environmental impacts.
  • Minimise waste and identify opportunities for reuse and recycling.
  • Successfully implement or demonstrate continuous improvement under ISO14001.
  • Improve its reputation, marketability and environmental risk management.

A City and Guilds Licentiateship in Sustainable Manufacturing, a nationally recognised Higher Education qualification awarded through the University of Leeds.

Commitment required
A typical module requires 3 days of contact time, either as a block or separate across a short period (this can be flexed to suit your company’s needs). Taught sessions are delivered in ‘learning sets’ (or project teams) of approximately 6-8 delegates. Following the taught sessions, each individual must complete an assessed work-based project focused on improving a particular area of your business, which will require additional study and preparation time,
