Title Draft National Occupational Standards for a Healthcare Waste Manger
Product Type teaching material
Marketing Text National Occupational Standards (NOS) have been developed covering various aspects of healthcare waste management at EQF level 6.
Recommendations for the development of a National Occupational Standard, for the common recognition of the qualifications of the Managers in the Healthcare Waste industry within Europe, will be based on the comparative analysis of the respective qualifications in participating countries.
The approach adapted will be the enumeration and detailed classification of the knowledge, skills and competences currently required and likely to be required by the Healthcare Waste Facilities Managers over the next 5 years, derived from relative curricula and consultation within the industry.
The results will be presented in the form of a matrix in line with the EQF standards. As part of the process, the allocation of credit will be defined; the selection of key areas of learning will be defined and these learning points will be designated and grouped to create distinct learning units.
Target group Professionals working within the healthcare waste management sector, or training/education providers.
