Our academic teaching team use innovative approaches to integrate the experiences of industry, local government and not-for-profit representatives into the classroom by running panel discussions and hypothetical discussions – an opportunity to connect with experts in the sustainability and environment space. Academics also provide leadership in a number of key sustainability forums such as the Sustainability Executive, and continually engage with industry and local government via research project supervision and collaborative projects.

We are supported by a highly experienced Community and Industry Advisory Board (CIAB), comprised of representatives from industry, local government and not-for-profit sectors. Several of the board members are OEP alumni. The CIAB offers practical and immediate insights into current workforce trends and needs, as well as facilitating student interaction with their organisations and professional communities.
