SIBFORD SIXTH FORM


Countryside Management


BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma


Exam Board: Pearson Edexcel (equivalent to one A Level)


ENTRY REQUIREMENT There are no formal entry requirements for this course. However, students need to have a keen interest in the environment and in working outdoors. This course would combine well with Geography and Biology as it contains a large proportion of practical and investigative fieldwork. The course is assessed by 100% written assessment (no examinations). Students need to be prepared to research independently, complete extended pieces of writing and adhere to strict deadlines.


The key elements of the course are:


Project Management: Students embark on investigative projects such as tree planting and conservation work on wildlife reserves. They draw up their own project management plans and implement these.


Environmental interpretation: Students research the different methods by which nature reserves, zoos and botanical gardens inform the public about their environments, through information displays and posters, information packs and nature trails.


Woodland Habitat Management: Students carry out comprehensive studies on habitats, write management plans for these habitats and carry out management work within the woodland.


Grassland Habitat Management: Students have the opportunity to study calcareous grasslands which contain rare species of wild orchids on a local farm.


Farm Habitat Management: Students learn about the importance of farming for the environment. They investigate the management of farm habitats and study how the Environment Stewardship scheme encourages this practice.


ASSESSMENT Students complete six units over the 2 year course (each is worth 10 credits). Each unit typically consists of 4 assignments.
