The course is designed for learners who want to continue their education through applied learning and who aim to progress to higher education, and ultimately to employment in the applied science sector. It is intended as part of a two-year programme, normally alongside a further Level 3 qualification. It may also offer apprenticeship or direct employment opportunities.
