Applied Science - Level 3 (Adults)
Course Code: ES1FE049
This new approach to our adult classes in applied science is an exciting change with bright prospects! The class has been changed to 2 evenings a week, Wednesdays on site in our new, highly resourced laboratories and Thursdays being remotely accessed from home.
You will complete 4 units of applied science (see below for details) to achieve the National Extended Certificate from Pearson. As well as this, you will carry out a LOT of science experiments which you can document in your portfolio. Our aim is for you to do so many biology and chemistry investigations using our high-spec equipment that you will be able to walk into a science lab as a career, and get started straight away! The modules chosen are rich in chemistry content and we understand that it is a suitable replacement for GCSE chemistry requirements for progression on to most pathways. Please get in touch if you are unsure about this and we will be able to help you out.
Previous experience and motivation to complete course are more important than qualifications.
Teaching and Learning Methods
Teaching and learning differs for each module, with practical units culminating in a product creation assignment.
Initially, we will support you by way of demonstrations and walkthroughs; as you progress through the course, we will encourage you to be work on your own initiative and in groups.
Teaching is delivered by subject specialists, who draw from a vast amount of industry experience to support you in developing the skills needed in your future career. You will also have access to cutting-edge facilities and resources throughout your course.
