IEMA is calling on its members to give their feedback on how they are using the skills map published last year

The IEMA environmental skills map was launched in June 2011 and is now being used by members, employers and universities to plot the skills and experience needed to fulfil defined environmental roles and responsibilities.

The depth of the skills map does not stop at the level members currently see, however; work is continuing on developing its use, usability and underlying levels.

IEMAs aim is to create awareness of the existing skills map framework and its uses, along with determining the specific needs of our members and how the skills map can be integrated into current practice. For example, how could you or your organisation use the skills map?
Over the coming weeks members will be invited to attend one of a series of introductory webinars to firstly introduce the skills map and the development project. Similar workshop sessions with training providers, consultants, universities, corporate members and small businesses, will ensure their needs are also accounted for.

Most importantly, we are seeking members who are willing to be interviewed about their knowledge and skills, to help us identify how members can use the skills map for their own professional development.

We will be having ongoing discussions with members, in addition to surveys and the use of our LinkedIn groups. There will also be a number of examples profiled, to show other members the benefits of embedding the skills map within professional development.

Members do not have to have particular experience or knowledge of the map to be eligible for interview, or to take part in the webinars. Interested members should contact Tara Cox at [email protected].
