Applied Science BTEC Level 3 at Alderman White School and Language College

The course is aimed at students who achieved at least a merit grade in L2 BTEC Science or a good grade at GCSE. This course is designed for students who have an interest in Science but would rather work in practical areas rather than the theoretical ones.

Year 12 – Assessment is 100% course work. You will produce a portfolio of evidence made up of assignments from the 1st three units listed above. This will lead to a BTEC L3 Certificate in applied science for students who do not continue into year 13. Year 13 – Assessment is 100% course work. You will produce a portfolio of evidence made up of assignments from the 2nd three units listed above. Together with your year 12 work this will lead to a BTEC L3 Subsidiary diploma in applied science
You can go on to find employment in a vocational scientific work place or move onto a relevant course in Higher education. BTEC Science can be used in many career options such as: forensics; laboratory technicians; nursing and technicians within the NHS.
