Skills for Work: Laboratory Science National 5
A new course, Skills for Work: Laboratory Science National 5, has recently been introduced into schools and colleges in Scotland.
Our consultations with colleagues in schools and colleges indicate that Laboratory Science National 5 is often taught by an individual teacher who may lack detailed subject knowledge in aspects outside their own area(s) of expertise. We plan to support the Laboratory Science National 5 course by offering participants the opportunity to explore laboratory procedures and practices which can be used in delivery across the course.
If you are teaching or working as a technician in a Local Authority funded-school in Scotland you will qualify for an ENTHUSE Bursary of £480 from the National STEM Learning Centre (NSLC) which will cover registration and accommodation costs associated with the course.
