ENTRUST runs a number of training events each year, including basic training and open days. These events help people learn more about the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), how it is run and what their obligations are under the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 (Regulations). Whether new to the LCF or looking for a refresher these events will give you the information you need.
We have recently released the dates for all of our training events and open days in 2015. Our next available training date is Thursday 21 May. The training will be held at our offices in Leamington Spa and places are available to book now.
Our Environmental Body (EB) training days have been designed in line with feedback from EBs on last year's training programme, our training strategy and our Corporate Plan. Our basic training sessions cover the following areas:
- what the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) is and how it works;
- who ENTRUST are and what we do;
- what projects can be approved and how this happens;
- what you must do now that you are an EB; and
- open forum and questions.
Our basic courses are suitable for people from new EBs to new staff joining established EBs or for those who would simply like a refresher on the LCF.
Our open days provide an opportunity for new and existing EBs to meet with the ENTRUST team and find out more about the LCF and our role and responsibilities within it. Open days start with a tour of our offices followed by area specific workshops with plenty of opportunities for questions throughout the day and a chance to speak one to one on any issues you wish to resolve. Held annually our next open day will be on Tuesday 23 June and you can book your place here.
If you can't make any of the training dates, you can use the booking form to register an interest and we will contact you to talk about your needs. You can also access the training resources section of our website which features information, guides and videos to help support you.
