Science apprenticeshipsPosted: 9th of February 2015 by
Often seen as a career route that is limited to the traditional academic, A-level route, let’s not forget about the science apprenticeships available.
There may only be one framework in the science and maths sector, but this framework contains six exciting and diverse pathways. Careers in science are great for those who have an investigative mind and the great thing about science apprenticeships is that they offer the opportunity to get started in a scientific job without having to study full-time at university, so for those who know that university isn’t the right route for them, they are not excluded from these rewarding careers.
Life sciences are broad and jobs exist in healthcare, the food and drink industry, agriculture, marine biology and many, many more areas, doing jobs that you’ve probably not even heard of, let alone thought about doing.
Level of science apprenticeships:
Science apprenticeships are available at higher (level 4 – Science Technician) and Higher (level 5 – Life sciences & chemical science professionals)
The level 4 apprenticeships offer the opportunity to gain a related HNC (Higher National Certificate) qualification and the level 5 apprenticeships, the opportunity to gain a related HND (Higher National Diploma) or Foundation Degree qualification.
