Chemistry is everywhere. We cannot live without it! During this two year course, you will learn about the underlying chemistry concepts behind many essential reactions in life and industry. We review and build on GCSE knowledge in the early units. There are plenty of experiments in this course and, together with other activities, they help you understand the topics.

Modules include:

Year 1

  • Foundation Chemistry
  • Alkanes, Alkenes and Alcohols

Year 2

  • Carbonyls and Carboxylic Acid Derivatives

All 16-19 year olds on full-time programmes will be required to retake GCSE English and Maths or to undertake Functional Skills, if they have not already attained the equivalent of a GCSE grade C in these subjects, every year of their course, until they complete their studies.
