L1 Physics & Chemistry B

L1SPC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr L. Oliver

Recommended Prior Learning

Recommendation from your Science Teacher or HOF Science, based on your performance in year 10.


This course is designed for students looking to follow a science based pathway that requires a strong understanding of Physics & Chemistry such as Engineering, Architecture and some Health Science disciplines. Both subjects are taught by experienced staff who specialise in these fields and can bring their extensive knowledge and understanding to engage and motivate students.

Note: Students who are looking to follow a Science based career, should choose to take both SPC and SBC to give them the best preparation and greatest choice of pathways.


Learning Areas:

Science



Pathway

L2 Chemistry, L2 Physics

This course leads into Physical Science based careers such as Engineering, Architecture and some Health Sciences. Your Science teacher can give you advice in this.
