L2 Vocational Science

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs Breen

The course comprises a mixture of Level 2 Biology, Physics, Earth and Space Science achievement standards and Horticulture unit standards. Building on those topics studied in L1SCV and L1SCS, this course is aimed at those students who require a general understanding of Level 2 Science without the need for the in depth detail covered in the other Level 2 courses. A range of practical skills and investigative techniques will be developed throughout the course to help support understanding of concepts. This course is not suitable for students doing Gateway.
