Careers Based on Science

Rate this resource

I have attached two documents which introduce Careers Based on Science, together with information about types of work in science, pathways to qualifications, employers of people with science-based qualifications and a few general pointers about the world of work.

The longer document contains more information about each career, as well as the facility to access detailed information by Control and Click on the web address given for each one. The concise document provides a one line description for each career, further information being available from the National Careers Service.

The articles take a broad view of careers based on science, for example careers in healthcare are included because a great many are firmly rooted in science. I hope that these articles may be of some use to those working with students.
