From education to employment

College offers GCSE Biology information session

Barnsley College (@barnsleycollege) is holding a GCSE Biology information session on Monday 23 August at 6.00pm for anyone interested in studying the course. The online session will enable you to find out more about the course and tutors will be available to answer questions in a live Q&A.

The GCSE Biology course is perfect for those who want to launch their Higher Education journey and study a degree but don’t yet have the qualifications. Underpinning the key concepts which explain how science is applied in the outside world by real scientists, students will gain a greater understanding on a range of topics from cell biology and organisms to infection and responses and ecology.

Studied part-time, the GCSE Biology course is comprised of theory and practical work with 15% of the total examination marks obtained through exciting practical lessons such as food tests and photosynthesis.

The year-long course can be attended once a week either in the mornings at 9.15am – 12.30pm or in the evenings at 5.30pm – 8.30pm either on campus or online, making it the perfect course for those already in work or with existing commitments.

After successful completion of the course, students may be able to study College’s Access to HE Health Science Professions Level 3 course or an Access to HE Childcare (Teaching) course dependent on age and achievement level.

Toni Milnes, Course Leader for Health Sciences at Barnsley College, delivers the GCSE Biology course and said:

“Throughout studying the course, students will have the opportunity to take part in hands-on practical sessions whilst obtaining a greater understanding of the knowledge which forms the foundations of many careers in both healthcare and teaching.

“There are tonnes of topics covered in the course from animals and plants to the tiniest micro-organisms. Study GCSE Biology, it’s the core of life itself.

To attend the event simply visit at 6.00pm on Monday 23 August and access the live YouTube link.
