Choosing what to study at school
For those that are still at school and want to work in the environment, choosing the right subjects now can provide a head start and be good preparation for further study or for http://www.iema.net/apprenticeships.
Choosing the correct GSCEs is essential, with a mix of Geography, Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics and Business Studies being recommended prerequisites before A level.
At A Level, Geography, Biology and perhaps Chemistry for an environmental science route are important when considering environmental courses at university; A Level General Studies is useful too. Universities may also specify the subjects they expect students to have as a prerequisite to applying.
Each of these subjects will provide skills that are essential to the environmental profession, and many employers may request them in job descriptions.
