From primary to tertiary and beyond

Students need to connect what they are learning in EfS with possible learning pathways. They also need to see how their learning in EfS is giving them skills for life and options for further education, as well as preparing them for possible careers.

Many primary school students are keenly aware of their environment, take part in environment-related actions, and are involved in making decisions about their environment.

These attitudes, skills, and experiences need to be built on during secondary education. At the very least, year 9 and 10 students need to be kept aware of the importance of the environment to their future lives and well-being.

In the senior secondary school, EfS can contribute to developing young adults with the skills to address sustainability issues, create entrepreneurial opportunities, and act for a sustainable future. EfS can also be a pathway to tertiary education and a range of careers.

Students need to be given good guidance about what subjects are required for tertiary courses that could interest them. The EfS teacher has a responsibility here, supported by the school’s careers education programme and services.

Possible courses of study, including options for integrated learning, are described in more detail in the learning programme design section of this guide.
