NCFE ‘Leading a Waterway Cleanup’ Training

Walbrook Wharf, C/O City of London Corporation, 78-83 Upper Thames Street, LONDON EC4R 3TD

For a second year running, we’re joining Keep Britain Tidy in assembling an army of #litterheroes for a UK wide mass clean-up as 80% of plastic in the oceans comes from land, and rivers are a significant pathway for it to get there.

To do this, we’re calling on as many Rivers Trusts as possible to get behind Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean 2019 and hold a river cleanup volunteer event, to help highlight the importance of keeping our rivers clean.

To help Rivers Trusts hold a river clean up, we’re offering Rivers Trust members FREE accredited training for up to 12 Rivers Trusts who wish to hold a cleanup event from March 22nd – April 23rd 2019.

This 2-day NCFE accredited course, called ‘Leading a Waterway Cleanup,’ is run by Thames21.  The course will help you confidently plan and run a safe, effective and enjoyable waterway improvement event with volunteers.

We are proposing to hold the 2-day training event (Walbrook Wharf, C/O City of London Corporation, 78-83 Upper Thames Street, London, EC4R 3TD) 12th Feb – 13th Feb @10am – 3.30pm each day. (Please arrive from 9:45 for registration, teas/coffees)

Day 1 will help you plan a waterway clean up event tailored for your specific site. It will cover pollution and urban waterway issues, processes and considerations involved in planning, identification of locations and recognising potential risks, and sharing experiences of working with the public on waterways.

Day 2 will help you lead a successful cleanup event and will take you through the methodology for planning and running practical volunteer events, health and safety, and positive leadership behaviours and techniques.

In order to become certified, trainees must attend the 2 days and complete two assignments.
