What will you be working towards?
||National Extended Diploma (BTEC)
This course will give you in-depth knowledge into chemistry, physics and biology which will cover a high level of practical laboratory skills.
This course combines practical and theoretical skills in chemistry, biology and physics. You will learn about the principles and applications of science and laboratory techniques delivered through weekly experiments in our fully-equipped laboratories.
The range of modules you will work on will be varied and exciting. You will begin to understand each separate science in-depth and how they can complement each other during experiments. To support your experiments in our laboratories, you will do an investigative project that will underpin the contemporary issues within science.
You will acquire technical and employability skills, knowledge and understanding, all of which are transferable and will enable you to meet changing circumstances in applied science practice. You will also develop a range of personal skills, techniques, and attributes that are essential for successful performance in working life.
Work experience is a mandatory part of the course you will be able to gain the skills and knowledge of how science has evolved in the work place. To complement your learning, you will have the opportunity to go a number of visits and field-trips.
How will it be delivered?
You will be assessed with coursework, practical assignments and examinations.
A minimum of 5 GCSE’s Grade 4 or above, to ideally include a science subject. In GCSE English and maths one of these grades needs to be a minimum of a Grade 4, and the other a minimum of a Grade 3.
