The qualification allows for a number of progression routes:
- Higher Education: the Advanced award provides a sound basis for progression to a range of HE courses, e.g. medicine, dentistry nursing biochemical sciences, biological sciences, environmental biology;
- Employment: various science sectors: chemical industry, health care, leisure and associated industries, medical and laboratory-based science, food and catering industries.
