Overview

In an ever-changing world where as humans, we are expanding exponentially and creating more and more infrastructure to support this growth, it is important to preserve the world we live in. This, combined with the rise of consumerism creates a dangerous cocktail of destruction for what’s left of the natural world.

Mass production of goods and sprawling metropolis’s is having a detrimental effect on planet Earth, something that is on the verge of becoming irreversible. Climate change is a major sign that the world we live in is changing and changing right before our eyes. Even in the UK where summers typically consist of one hot week in mid-July, temperatures have soared in 2018.

Why should I enrol?

This course will teach you the ways to help sustain the Earth’s resources, both animal and mineral. Although you may not be able to influence the growing consumption of our resources, it is true that if everyone does their bit, then changes can be made for the better of our home planet.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
