With over 120 qualification pathways and 70 quality assured centres, WAMITAB offers a specialist network to support staff development.
WAMITAB CEO, Chris James, said: “WAMITAB is delighted to be accepted as a member of the British Cleaning Council, sharing common objectives around the development of skills and partnership working to further the reputation of cleaning as a key contributor to the UK economy and the environment: in short, why cleaning matters.”
