Tutors’ Handbook (CPVE edition)

Nuffield Working with Science was revised in the 1980s to meet the requirements of the Certificate of Pre-Vocational Education (CPVE). In this edition the general course guidance and the specific guidance about the units was brought together into a single Tutors’ Handbook.

Chapter 1 Working with Science and CPVE
Chapter 2 Mini-Units
