Tailored CEnv guidance for marine and coastal science professionals

We are delighted to announce that we are launching tailored chartership guidance for marine and coastal science professionals completing their Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) qualification through the IES. This guidance has been developed by a working group from our Marine and Coastal Science Community who hold the CEnv qualification and work in a range of sectors. 

This guidance is designed to assist marine and coastal science professionals in framing their experience and preparing for their CEnv assessment, interrogating the competencies from a marine and coastal science perspective and supporting professionals in understanding how their work relates to the wider context of sustainable development. 

Due to the diversity of roles within the marine and coastal science sector, it should be noted that this document is a live document that will be updated as needed. It is impossible to develop a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach with so many diverse backgrounds and applicants, nor is this document an attempt to do so  it is a prompt and guide to pull experience from those working in marine and coastal science to help those pursuing chartership.

This guidance will be made available for all candidates undergoing our CEnv in Day workshops, and will be made available upon request for those completing their CEnv through the self-guided route. You can request this by dropping us an email. 

Ready to take the next step in your career? 

Sign up for one of our CEnv in Day workshops. These workshops aim to take all candidates through the assessment process in one day. In the morning, session candidates will be advised on editing their report by our workshop facilitator. The afternoon will then be spent completing the report, before attending a Professional Review Interview which will be conducted across the following working day.

Sign up for mentoring to access support in achieving your career goals, including support with undertaking chartership. 

Why not also join our Marine and Coastal Science Community? You will have the opportunity to connect with fellow professionals and help shape our activities for the specialism. If you would like to join the Community, please get in touch.
