The Access 3 Course articulates with, and provides progression to, the Managing Environmental Resources Intermediate 1 Course. The programme of study will, through a mainly practical approach, promote an active interest in the natural environment and its associated industries.
The Course will contribute to the candidate's general, scientific and vocational education by offering first-hand experiences of the living world. The Course offers opportunities for the development of skills to grow, care for and monitor plants, and to develop an interest in animal wildlife. This will encourage a responsible and caring attitude to the environment. Many of the experiences will involve group activities which will foster personal and interpersonal development.
As well as providing a foundation for further study, training and employment in the land-based sector, the programme of study will provide an enriching and rewarding experience which will enhance day-to-day life.
