    Overview:

    There is a growing need for environmental specialists with specific consultancy skills, who are increasingly being asked to provide consultant support to a shrinking public sector.


    Who is it for
    ?

    The course focuses on offering the vital skills for success as an environmental consultant to students who have already completed courses in specialist subjects. It is also relevant to those already working in consultancy who wish to move from junior to senior consultancy roles.

    Why this course?

    The emphasis is on providing students with the skills to undertake research and develop professional careers in a wide range of subjects related to the field of environmental studies; water, energy and environment.

    •     Paul Leinster
    •     David Fitzsimons
    •     Environmental lawyer (tbc)
    •     Environmental planner (tbc)

    Course details
    :

    The course will be designed around a scenario, e.g. a planning inquiry, select committee investigation or judicial review concerning a development or concern which requires specialist input. Each student will be required to investigate the issue/development and then provide written and verbal evidence to a ‘mock’ planning inquiry/select committee/judicial review as an expert witness.

    Assessment:

    There will be one assignment for the course – the provision of written and verbal evidence given at a mock examination in public.

    Funding Opportunities:

    To help students in finding and securing appropriate funding we have created a funding finder where you can search for suitable sources of funding by filtering the results to suit your needs.

    Future Finance loan
    Cranfield University has partnered with Future Finance as an alternative source of funding for our students.

    Your career:

    By providing the essentials of environmental consultancy as a new PgCert, this course aims to develop underpinning skills vital to consultancy practice. There is a growing need for consultants with in-depth, specialist domain skills rather than those with generalist environmental consultancy ability
