The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners (WCEC) gains Privy Council approval to grant Chartered Practitioner status

The WCEC announces that it finally receives its long-awaited Chartered Practitioner’s status, and permission to establish a register of chartered members – open to the entire sector

The Worshipful Company of Environmental Cleaners is delighted to announce receiving a grant of Royal Approval allowing it to confer the award of ‘Chartered Practitioner in Environmental Cleaning’, to members and establish a register thereof.

The WCEC Education committee has worked tirelessly for a prolonged period, to achieve this new Chartered status. Now there is a route for members of the cleaning industry to gain a professional credential recognising their skills or expertise. Along with the apprenticeship scheme under development, it provides a clearer career path and continuous professional acknowledgement.

John Shonfeld, Master of the WCEC says, “Our sector’s invaluable contribution during the COVID-19 pandemic is widely recognised, and it is so richly deserved. We, therefore, continue to build upon our recognition for the specific benefit of individuals who make up the whole. It’s up to all of us to keep our industry standards high and that means formally acknowledging the professionals who contribute throughout our broad sector.”
