Environmental Studies A Level
by NCC Home Learning, St Helens
The Environmental Studies course enables students to gain a deep and well-informed insight into the environment, and the scientific processes that control and affect it.
The central theme is the development of an understanding of how different events and cycles within the environment interrelate, how they influence subsequent environmental events, the human impacts on these events and cycles, and the strategies that can be used to minimise the problems caused.
This course is designed to allow you to study at your own pace and is designed to develop an interest and understanding of Environmental Studies.

An outline of what is offered in our A Level Environmental Studies course:
Unit 1: ENVS1 - The Living Environment
An introduction to the biodiversity of life on Planet Earth.
The reasons why the conservation of life on Earth is important are investigated, as are the methods which may be used to achieve effective conservation.
Conservation in the UK, coral reefs, Antarctica and tropical rainforests are used to develop these issues further.
'Life Processes in the Biosphere' allows consideration of the ecological relationships between organisms and their abiotic and biotic environments in order to understand conservation problems further and how these may be managed.
Unit 2: ENVS2 - The Physical Environment
This unit introduces the available physical resources essential to life on Earth, how humans utilise these resources and issues relating to resource over-exploitation.
Additionally, the naturally occurring resources such as atmospheric gases, water and minerals, and cycles involving them are explored. The uses, management and threats to these resources are also investigated, including global climate change, water demands and management as well as mineral exploitation.
