Development Matrix

The capability development matrix was designed to help organise and classify available interventions and resources that can enhance capabilities of practitioners to implement circular economy principles.

We’ve decided to organise the interventions in seven levels. The levels are indicative and not prescriptive.


Please note that:

  • Broad engagement reduces as learning intensity increases

  • Learner interventions cumulative (interventions combined to enhance knowledge and skills)

  • Level of engagement of learners increases by level

  • Learner time commitment increases by level

  • Learner interaction with peers and tutors increases by level

Clicking on a level will take you to the interventions we’ve identified for the respective level.

This table lists the interventions we’ve identified in ascending order from level 1 to level 7. You will also be able to see the most important information about each intervention at a glance.

For further information, please click the link provided which will take you to the website of the intervention.

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list.
