Some of the most intriguing and exciting questions about humans and the universe still remain unanswered. If you're curious to know what they are and how to play your part in figuring them out, chances are you'll make an incredible scientist.
And there's probably no better way today to start solving some of these challenges than the Science T Level.
Why? Because you'll learn the ropes in the best possible way, first immersing yourself in the theory of lab work before putting everything you've learned to the test working alongside scientists - at college and in commercial and hospital settings where you'll make a real difference to the world around us.
Science has never played a more important role in our world. Scientists are in huge demand and the rewards aren't just measured in money - but also in your impact on humans and the planet.
So what are you going to learn? We'll start by teaching you the basics of lab testing and analysis. You'll get a thorough grounding in the working practices that you'll soon be putting to good use yourself, on your 45-day industry placement in state-of-the-art lab environments.
If you're fascinated by the world around us and have a deep curiosity for researching and testing, you're going to love the Science T Level. There are endless career opportunities beyond the T Level, or you can specialise on a higher or degree apprenticeship when you'll spend most of your time working and getting paid with one day a week refining your knowledge in a study setting.
Or maybe you'll use what you've learned during your Science T Level and apply it to a totally different field. Science is closely aligned to digital technologies, engineering, health and maths, and your T Level will stimulate your curiosity about the wider world and how you can make a difference to it.
What are you waiting for. Come and join us. Awaken your curiosity on the Science T Level here at B&FC.
