This qualification is designed to provide an introduction to the environmental sustainability sector for those wishing to pursue a career in the energy sector or in conservation.  It is an entry-level qualification, offering a limited depth and breadth of knowledge that will allow learners to develop knowledge and understanding in the subject area in preparation for further study.  On completion of this qualification, learners can progress directly onto full Level 1 sector relevant qualifications such as the Level 1 Certificate in Understanding Environmental Sustainability, other full Level 1 qualifications or the Level 2 Award in Environmental Sustainability.

This qualification alone is insufficient to enable learners to demonstrate occupational competence and therefore cannot be used as a licence to practice or as an entry qualification for particular job roles.
