This course provides an opportunity for schools with low student numbers to undertake fieldwork for their required practicals.

Overall learning objectives for the course:

  • 3 days data collection

This course is designed to support students during their data collection. The projects need to be prepared upon arrival (title, experimental design, equipment list). Students collect their specimen or data in the field or laboratory and conduct their experiments. Support for analysis can be given.

Monday 18th – Wednesday 20th November at £188 per student

This course price includes in-course transport, whilst at the centre.

Due to safeguarding reasons we are unable to let adult learners attend these courses. To ensure safety all U18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult on residential courses, eg teacher or parent.

The cost of this course is VAT exempt, including in-course transport to field sites. Lunch on the first day is not included, but is on the final day.
