The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) has launched a compelling new series of ‘Lunch and Learn’, issues-related seminars from IQ Academy. As a nationally recognised expert in water management, James Dodds will be delivering the first webinar which will examine the transitional arrangements and new requirements for abstraction licensing.
Julian Smallshaw, Head of Educational Development at IQ, says: “IQ members making a New Year’s resolution to develop their skills and knowledge will be delighted to learn that we’ve created a tailor-made programme of webinars for them.
Our ‘Lunch and Learn’ programme is designed to fit in with our members’ busy working days. These compact, 30 minute, monthly webinars are open to anyone who has access to a computer. We think it’s a great way of bringing learning into the workplace in a way that’s accessible and relevant to the way people consume information in today’s YouTube culture.”
James adds: “Being involved with ‘Lunch and Learn’ is an excellent way for us to help IQ get members updated on these very relevant and important changes quickly and efficiently.”
James has also worked in conjunction with IQ to produce a factsheet focusing on the updated Abstraction Licensing regulations.
James Thorne is IQ’s Chief Executive Officer: “It’s essential that as an industry we have our finger on the pulse of change. That’s why we’ve partnered with the expert team at Envireau Water to produce this timely factsheet to coincide with legislative changes introduced by DEFRA. It’s a useful reference point for all professionals working in our sector involved in water management.”
James’ webinar is taking place on the 25th January, 12:30 – 13:00. IQ members can register to attend the webinar here.
