Applied Science BTEC National

Subject: BTEC Applied Science

Hours taught per fortnight (KS5): 9

The BTEC Applied Science course takes a vocational approach towards an academic subject. It offers a real-world perspective to the ideas and content studied and applies them to everyday life. The combination of assessment types gives students the confidence to apply their knowledge to succeed in the workplace whilst also providing a platform to continue learning through higher education courses. BTEC Applied Science is perfect for students who are looking to pursue further studies or careers in areas such as forensic science, nursing, environmental science, and engineering. It is also a great subject for students who simply have an interest in science and the world around them and wish to combine it with other subjects.
