Launching the Registered Environmental Practitioner

The Society for the Environment (SocEnv) have just launched their new professional registration, Registered Environmental Practitioner (REnvP), and the IES is delighted to be among the first licensing bodies to award it to our members.

What is REnvP?

The Registered Environmental Practitioner is a professional registration that demonstrates commitment to the environmental sector and application of environmental knowledge, understanding and skill to protect and enhance the environment in a sustainable way. REnvP status is external recognition of a high level of professionalism and competence, helping to differentiate you from your peers.

Is REnvP right for me?

Registered Environmental Practitioner sits directly between Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) and Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv). It is an achievement in itself, and can also be viewed as a stepping stone towards Chartership.

To qualify for REnvP, candidates should have:

- At least one years' relevant professional experience after graduation;
- A Level 5 qualification (UK) or the equivalent internationally; and
- Associate grade membership of the IES.

REnvP registrants can work in a wide variety of roles, disciplines and sectors, and can live and work anywhere in the world. They have a level of autonomy, provide advice, inform senior leaders and play co-ordinating roles within projects. The environment can be the core part of their role, or professionals can specialise in environmental work.

How do I apply?

Take a look through our information pack and decide your preferred route to REnvP through either completing a written report or undertaking a Professional Review Interview to demonstrate how you meet the competencies. You can then download and complete the relevant application form (report or interview) and submit it to the IES administration team along with your long-form CV.

Apply before 31st March 2021 to make the most of our introductory discounted price of just £68.
