Sustainable Management course overview

  • Do you see things around your work that you want to change but don’t know how to impact them?
  • Do you want to move your career into the sustainability field but don’t have the needed skills or a relevant qualification?
  • Or are you currently in the field and would like to advance your knowledge?

This course is for you. The course is delivered virtually online by BEC on behalf of Coventry College as part of the Adult Education Skills Boot Camps funded by the WMCA.

The course is designed with industry experts to demystify sustainability for employees. It focuses on upskilling, so you can become a champion in sustainability and net zero, enabling you as an individual to support your business’s transition to a much more sustainable future. This course is designed for those wanting to become a sustainability expert and practitioner, or current sustainability managers looking to advance their knowledge and join a like minded community.

You will be taught from a project management perspective and not an academic or technical one.

You will receive a Certificate of Completion from BEC in partnership with Coventry College, showcasing your accomplishment to your current and future employers.

  • Other than a sought-after and respected qualification, you will also receive access to a community of practitioners, 1-1 mentoring and business development meetings and support in promotion within your organisation.
  • Understand the wider context of climate change, sustainability and how it relates to business now and in the future
  • Investigate different actions that can be taken, with understanding the potential of technology and innovation to enable sustainable practices
  • Define and explore stakeholders, and find reasons for collaboration
  • Develop integrated sustainability strategies and ensure they are implemented
  • Lead on articulating sustainability, and drive change
  • Explore the importance of communication, internally and externally

What you will learn

The course is split into 8 modules, seven core modules on sustainability and one module covering personal and professional skills development.

There is a commitment of 60 hours with virtual live sessions taking place on Mondays and Tuesdays, 4-6pm every week. The rest of the hours will be done flexibly through assisted homework sessions and mentoring and coaching sessions.

If you are not able to attend, you may watch the recordings but a minimum of 80% of live sessions will need to be attended for passing the course.
