Our science courses ensure you gain the theory, skills and practical techniques for a successful career in science. The curriculum includes physics, chemistry, biology and maths, giving you the chance to progress into a wide range of science degrees and careers.
Learn from tutors that combine biology, chemistry and physics and aim to get you to the highest standards possible so that you can progress into work or Higher Education. Courses at BTEC Levels 1-3 aimed at students moving from secondary to further education. For adult learners who may not have been in education for some time we offer daytime access into university, diplomas or GCSE biology in the evening.
Do you know…The Science department is an affiliate member of the British Science Association and Royal Society of Chemistry and we are active supporters in the WorldSkills UK competition, which is part of ‘Find a Future’, which brings together the UK’s flagship skills and careers experiences.
Earning potentialThe average salary for a Biomedical Scientist is £46,800 per year whilst doctors earn from about £45,000 to £100,000 upwards.
What’s next?Upon successful completion of your course you can enter full-time employment or (after completing the Level 3) progress into university to pursue a degree in the sciences. Career opportunities include industries such as food technology, pharmaceuticals, medical research, petrochemicals, health, environmental protection and plant science.
