What will I be doing on the course?

What can I do after the course?
Carbon management is a rapidly growing sector. After this course you may seek employment in a range of public, private and voluntary sector organisations for which carbon management is of a growing concern. While many large scale organisations are now required by law to manage their emissions, many smaller organisations are also responding to social and economic pressures to manage their carbon footprints. As such, †carbon management is becoming relevant to those involved in financial, procurement and waste management decisions as well as those who manage energy budgets. If you complete the course successfully you will also have the option to progress to Stage 3 of the BSc (Hons) Environmental Resource Management run by Cornwall College.
