Health Science Professions – Access to Higher Education Diploma

The Health Science pathway is a platform that leads allied health professions which include Paramedics, Physiotherapy, Radiography as well as Chiropractic to name a few.  Access to Health Science is designed for adults seeking a career path in a science related profession. The programme begins by helping you to understand the basic concepts of Biology and you will progress to learn about health and disease through existing medical research. In Term 2 you will carry out your own research project in the laboratory. Alongside this you will learn core study skills that will prepare you for University. The Access to Health Science Professions requires commitment and dedication and will provide a challenging yet fun learning environment towards your career goals. 

Biology A Level

The course covers a wide range of biology topics, from basic biochemistry and cell structure, body systems such as the digestive and respiratory systems, photosynthesis, genetics and inheritance, ecology and classification. A variety of teaching and learning strategies will be used throughout the course. Practical work is an important part of this course and students will complete a number of experiments, working on their practical skills and application of knowledge.

Chemistry A Level

A Level Chemistry builds upon the knowledge gained at GCSE but explores it much further. It is a demanding and hugely rewarding subject that encourages deep learning and develops higher-order skills. This course covers a wide range of chemistry topics that build from the basics of formulae writing, calculating chemical quantities and atomic structure. We examine the application of these core principles, in the context of intermediate bonding and the effects of intermolecular forces and redox reactions, organic chemistry, equilibria, transition metals and organic nitrogen chemistry. This conceptual learning is underpinned by practical skills.

Physics A Level

Physics enables you to study everything in the Universe, from the absolute smallest particles (quarks) to the largest structures known to man (galaxies). How does it accomplish this? By using mathematics to describe the patterns we observe in experiments. By discovering these patterns, Physics has served as a foundation for most of the engineering and technology we have today. Smartphones and cars, space stations and robots, skyscrapers and the internet, all of these have been built using Physics. So as Britain becomes more technologically advanced, the demand for engineers and physicists is higher than ever. This course is your first step towards not only entering those careers, but understanding some of the deepest mysteries of the Universe.
