What you'll learn

You will improve the wider skills vital for success in further study or employment including self-confidence, speaking in front of others, working with others, taking responsibility, and managing your time. By the end of your programme, you will have benefited from a valuable insight into the environmental or conservation careers open to you.

Along with your A Levels, you will have the opportunity to undertake an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), an independent project on a topic of your choice. Your EPQ will be a field study, part of an ecology, environmental or conservation project undertaken over your time at the college. EPQ's are valued by higher education institutions as they demonstrate your dedication to independent learning.
