Ecology level 2 course
About the course
Accredited by UK Rural Skills
This is a new course aimed at new learners, those wanting to change career, anyone who has not studied ecology elsewhere as well as those who want to do some revision in the subject. GCSE Science students would find the course useful to support the ecology section of the specification from AQA, OCR Community level systems, Ecosystems and material cycles in Pearson Edexcel, WJEC Cells, Organ systems and Ecosystems.
At level 2 the assignments are straightforward with multiple-choice questions and the whole course could be completed within a couple of months. There is no time limit though for completing the course.
The course starts with ecosystems and energy flow and has two units for that area. You will find out about primary productivity, how energy is said to flow through an ecosystem, autotrophs, heterotrophs and be introduced to nutrient cycling.
Other units cover food chains and food webs, populations and communities, patterns and distributions of organisms and collecting and sampling for ecology.
