Aims

 

Science at Bromley Beacon Academy aims to give learners the knowledge, understanding and skills that will enable them to progress to qualifications in a Science or Technology related area at a higher level.

 

Gateway Qualifications Level 1 Award, Certificate and Extended Certificate in Applied Science and Technology are all available to students taking science as an option in year 10.

 

Year 9

 

During Year 9 all pupils are taught applied science within their other subjects:

 

  • Electronics in Action is taught in ICT, motorbike mechanics and music

  • Effective communication in the workplace is taught in English

  • Using ICT in the workplace is taught in ICT

    Students completing the year will be awarded the Level 1 Award in Applied Science and Technology.

    Year 10 and 11

    During Year 10 and 11 all pupils are taught applied science within their other subjects. Those choosing science as an option undertake a double module in Biology and the Environment at level 2. As this is the first year running the course both Year 10 and Year 11 are studying the same programme. Students successfully completing the course will be awarded the Level 2 Award in Applied Science and Technology.

    Year 11 from September 2019

    From 2019 Year 11 will build on their biology module by completing the double module in Energy, Waves and Radiation. Students successfully completing the course will be awarded the Level 2 Certificate in Applied Science and Technology.

    Examinations

    At level 1 and 2 pupils are assessed via portfolio on their ability to:

 

  • Know, identify and use basic scientific methodologies.

  • Know, identify and use basic scientific tools.

  • Understand that science and technology are integrated into the world around them.

  • Produce a comprehensive portfolio of evidence using varied methods.

    Where to next:

 

  • Further learning at the same level (level 1 diploma)

  • Further learning at a higher level (level 2 certificate or extended certificate)

  • Careers in science as laboratory technicians
