Is the Course for me?
Do you have a passion and enthusiasm for the study of the Science? If so, then this is the course for you. This course will give you the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised vocationally specific qualification to enter employment as a science technician or assistant practitioner. This course will also enable you to progress to other vocational qualifications, if that is what you choose to do.
What is involved?
This course investigates the application of science through practical activities from which the theory is then drawn. This provides opportunities for you to develop your practical laboratory skills to a high level.
There are laboratory-based practical assignments, supported by self-study, presentations, group work and discussion.
You will be externally examined on 2 units during the first year and another 2 units during the second year.
You can progress onto the Extended Diploma.
