For the Extended Certificate you will need at least two grade 4/Cs in Combined Science or grade 4-4 in Core & Additional Science. For the Extended Diploma you will need at least two grade 5s.
This Applied Science qualification will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills to progress into a scientific role – including an apprenticeship or progression to university.
As part of the Extended Diploma, you will have an opportunity to spend time in the workplace. Our Employability Team will help you find a placement, which will develop your knowledge and skills.
If you take the Extended Certificate work experience is optional. However, both courses will have visits to local science-based companies and employers will come into college to deliver talks and workshops.
You will be expected to supply your own stationery and purchase a lab coat and textbook. Contributions may also be required for extra activities and visits you wish to take part in, but costs are kept to a minimum.
