Centres are responsible for the overall risk assessment of experimental work undertaken by learners.


Attention is drawn to the need for safe practice when students carry out laboratory experiments or observe demonstrations. Particular attention is drawn to the possible hazards associated with electrical equipment, the handling of micro-organisms and ionising radiation. Strict aseptic conditions should be used when undertaking practical work. Reference must be made to COSHH regulations and any specific local education authority restrictions.

INTRODUCTION


These tutor support materials have been produced to complement the information given in the guidance section of the specification and to provide extra support in the planning, delivery and assessment of the course programme.


Activities and exemplar assignment briefs are provided for Units 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13.


The materials have been designed mainly for the delivery of a 1 or 2 year full-time Introductory Certificate or Diploma programme, although referrals to part-time programmes are made and the principles can be adapted for any mode of attendance.


COURSE PROGRAMME RATIONALE



The BTEC Introductory Certificate and Diploma are vocationally related qualifications and have been developed to give course programme leaders/tutors the opportunity to deliver a programme of learning that reflects the nature of the applied science industry.


The BTEC Introductory Certificate and Diploma in Applied Science are designed to:



  1. develop a range of employability skills and techniques, understanding, personal qualities and attributes essential for success in working life



  1. develop learners’ ability in the application of science through effective use and combination of the knowledge and skills gained in different parts of the qualifications



  1. provide specialised studies directly relevant to the science and related sectors in which learners are working or intend to seek employment



  1. provide a stepping stone into employment in the science industry or an organisation that uses science where some previous experience is necessary to gain initial employment



  1. provide a suitable qualification for learners to progress on to a range of further study at levels 1 and 2.
