The evolving roles of EHP's such as increasing emphasis on EHPs' preventive role and their role in partnership working, was one of the drivers to update the programme. The other major of the driver for this new revision was the introduction by the CIEH, of a new core curriculum in 2007. This provided an opportunity to examine the programme haVing regard to the changing demands in the outside worid and the environmental health profession. The new programme aims to ensure that the students deveiop appropriate knowledge and experience to enable them to be flexibly deployed in the public, private and non-profit sectors and can meet the evoiving requirements of their customersand stakeholders. Changes in the programme's ethos, the changes presented in this consultation document suggest an evolution of the programme to satisfy the current demands while building on the commendable qualities of the existing programme. The enhancement of students' experience is the primary concern for the Course Planning Committee and will remain a dominant focus when revising the programme. The other challenge is to design a course that will deliver the essential skills, knowledge for the environmental health profession and experiences and also satisfy academic standards.
