Sustainability Management 2.0: Unleashing the Power of Data for Sustainable Success

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. 

This 8-week course is designed with industry experts to demystify sustainability for employees. We will upskill you to 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 for someone wanting to become a sustainability expert and practitioner, or current sustainability managers looking to advance their knowledge and join a like minded community. Every participant will end this short course with an appreciation of sustainability and the significance of information management in our increasingly digital world.

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.
