Event description

A helping hand with your CIWEM Chartership application.

Our experienced Reviewers and Mentors will share with you their extensive first-hand knowledge of the assessment process and technical expertise to support you in preparing an outstanding application for Chartership. The first step towards the road to chartership is submission of Career Overview Report and Mandatory Competencies (MC). For many aspiring candidates this early commitment can become an unsurmountable hurdle.

The CIWEM West Midlands Branch New Members Group have organised this three-session series to assist those who are either struggling to get the ball rolling or finding it overwhelming to gather their thoughts. We are keen to support you over the first hurdle and on the way to success.

You can register for the series by clicking the registration button below.

If you have registered previously for the event, you will have received an email with joining instructions. If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Woods at barbara.woods@ciwem.org.
