To support Centres with embedding sustainability and environmental awareness within the curriculum, new sustainability units have been developed and added to all Access to HE Diplomas.

New units

These units can support learners’ understanding of the importance of sustainability within their chosen sector and demonstrates learning through the successful planning, delivery and review of a project.

We are working hard to update our website with new expiry dates so you can plan with confidence.
