Environmental Sustainability (Level 3 Certificate)

Pearson BTEC
Construction & Built Environment

Course Overview

Environmental sustainability and related environmentally based sectors are growing rapidly within the UK. The government has introduced relevant legislation and international agreements and protocols with an emphasis on reducing global warming, climate change, low carbon economy and the need for conservation. A need has been identified to educate and train learners for employment within environmental sustainability sector-based organisations or individuals within a wide range of other related organisations. Topics such as climate change, conservation, environmental monitoring and energy management are fundamental to the development of environmental awareness, and there is a drive within the sector to see an increase in the practical skills and techniques that support environmental understanding. This qualification gives learners opportunities to focus on the development of personal, learning and thinking skills, functional skills, and wider skills in an environmental and/or sustainability-related context.
