Technicians supporting biology:11-16 NY604


Biology can often be seen as the science subject with few practicals that are engaging and work successfully. On this course we will change that perception through a diverse range of practicals developed by ourselves and others that will highlight that biology can be taught through exciting and effective practical work.

The course has been developed on five main strands to make sure its relevant to technicians, these five strands include, where to source the equipment, how to set it up, how the practical runs in the classroom, scientific background to the practical and health and safety.

The content has been designed to fulfil the biology curriculum for 11-16 students and will include topics that will inspire pupils to attain in their biology qualifications. We will go small with microscopy, green fingered with plants, internal with dissections and into the realm of microorganism. For more information on the content and how they will support you and others please download this document.

Course fees vary for participants outside the UK. Please contact for more information.
