Course content

Science is a very exciting and changing sector and this course will give you an introduction to science and you will cover the three main sectors being biology, chemistry and physics.

This course builds on the experience gained studying at either entry 3 science or key stage 3 science delivered in mainstream education.

You will learn in a variety of ways - through talks and demonstrations, by completing classroom practical’s and exercises. There will also be independent study and your progress will be evaluated via coursework.

The course includes industry research and essay writing, the development of investigation skills and exposure to a range of the employability options within Science. English, maths and IT will form an integral part of your studies on the course and wherever possible potential visits to employers and the science museum will also be conducted.
