About this Unit
This unit examines environmental management policy and its practice in a variety of settings. In terms of policy, the unit begins with a brief overview of the policy principles associated with the concept of sustainable development. In terms of management practice, students are invited to select a vocationally relevant change strategy from a range introduced in the study materials. These include National and Local Planning, ISO 140000 and Healthy Settings. Students are required to examine the implications of the use of one of these strategies in their workplace/community. The unit guides this process by providing in depth materials in the fields of change management, organisational learning and policy development. The unit is offered in a distance-learning mode with two compulsory workshops.
