The Science Short Course, developed in association with the Centre for Science Education, accredits up to 60 hours of science studies and activities. It is designed to support learners working towards science GCSEs, while maintaining their curiosity about the subject. Learners develop their personal and employability skills – as well as their science knowledge and understanding. This Short Course is supported by a free downloadable set of tutor notes.
The flexibility of ASDAN’s Short Courses means they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre. Challenge descriptions can be interpreted and adapted according to the situation.
This Short Course can be completed using the student book or is available for learners to complete online through the ASDAN e-portfolio system. Learners log in to complete challenges, record skills development and upload evidence. Tutors can view learner progress and sign off work, leaving feedback as needed.
