Updated Environmental Science course specifications

We have made some minor updates to the environmental agencies information within the course specifications for National 5 and Higher Environmental Science.

References to Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) have been changed to NatureScot (NS), to reflect the organisation's name change. We have also removed an outdated reference to Forestry Commission Scotland. In addition, we have fixed, replaced or removed broken hyperlinks within the documents.

The updated course specifications are dated June 2021 and are valid from session 2021-22 onwards. You can access them from the Environmental Science web pages of our website.
