Environmental Protection (PPP)

University of the West of England, Bristol
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

This course is offered at Masters level and is delivered at our Frenchay Campus.

Course content includes:

  • Conduct an environmental noise survey in which novel data are secured, and from which judgments can be made and measures recommended for its mitigation (whether or not intervention is indicated).
  • Consideration of air quality in a discrete geographical area, relating this to health impact and the means of managing or resolving any problem found, or standards exceeded, under the relevant air quality strategy
  • Involvement in a situation that focuses on long-term health impact and/or environmental degradation arising from contaminated land, or, the acute problems arising from unlawful dumping on land and discharges to watercourses.
  • Dealing with a report or complaint of environmental pollution in which the nature and extent of the circumstances encountered require their consideration as a potential statutory nuisance.
  • Involvement in the investigation for approval/permitting of processes that are 'listed activities' (or to other prescribed processes which are subject to special controls).
  • *Leadership and collaborative working to improve population health and well-being (If the Public Health intervention 'PH5 - communicable disease outbreak investigation'' is included in the Environmental Protection week).*


48 hours face-to-face scheduled activity is delivered in a one week block. This will be supported by:

  • between 12 and 24 hours of distance learning materials on the subject of Health and Safety.
  • between 3 and 6 hours of tutorial support, either face-to-face or through a virtual learning environment.
  • after each week's block activities you will have the opportunity to submit one draft intervention report out of the five to be completed. General formative feedback will be provided relating to the three skill areas and the reflection. Detailed feedback will not be provided, although if you have clearly missed a major technical or regulatory issue, this will be pointed out. This aligns with CIEH professional practice and meets the accreditation requirements.
