There are legal implications around certain invasive non-native plants. If the regulations are breached it can result in a fine or even a prison sentence. Consequently, it is essential that those who manage, value or advise on land and property can recognised these species.
While existing learning does exist in the form of informal CPD the Level 4 Award in Law and Management of Japanese Knotweed and Other Invasive Non-Native Plant Species includes sufficient assessment of the knowledge to give employers across a range of sectors, land and property owners and the lending industry sufficient confidence in the ability of learners to recognise these species in a range of circumstances.
