Applied Science (Double Award) at West Walsall E-ACT Academy

Course description

This is a qualification that covers the whole programme of study for KS4 Science. The principle behind this course is that, in order to understand the nature of science, students must actively experience the scientific environment. This course considers some of the knowledge required by scientists and the type of work and investigations that they might undertake. The core content of the specification looks at broad vocational areas to which science contributes. It also exemplifies the procedural and technical knowledge of science practice that medical and material scientists, microbiologists and analytical chemists may undertake. The specification also enables the study of science practice in the workplace. Following this course will introduce students to work-related learning and equip students with some of the skills used by scientists in the workplace. It will also empower students to take charge of their own learning and provide a range of teaching, learning and assessment styles to motivate students to achieve the best they can. The assessment comprises four units: three portfolio units and one externally assessed unit.
