Mark Hardwick teaching at UCW

Lecturer Mark Interviewed by Chartered Institute of Environmental Health


We are proud to share that UCW’s programme Co‑ordinator for the Environmental Health Practitioner degree apprenticeship and BSc (Hons) Public and Environmental Health Mark Hardwick was recently interviewed by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) on the benefits of studying an Environmental Health Degree!

Within the article, Mark comments: 

Qualified Environmental Health Practitioners are constantly in demand, both in the public and private sectors. There has been a shortage of appropriately qualified practitioners for years, and this continues to be so. Career prospects are therefore extremely good.

Aside from the attractive career prospects, Environmental Health courses are in themselves interesting and cover a wide range of subjects, which are oriented around the professional facets of food safety and control, pollution control, housing standards, health and safety at work, and health promotion. All of these subject areas are directed by a need to understand principles of law, science, and professional practice.
