This is a practical, work related course, developing the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding of laboratory science. You will often work in small groups, presenting your findings to the rest of the class. The course is continuously assessed through assignments, practical tasks and case studies. In some subjects there will also be written and/or verbal tests. You will develop a responsible and co-operative approach to working on your own and in groups. You will also take part in work experience or a work based project during non-college days.
