Event description
Invitation to CCEA GCE Life and Health Sciences Focus Group

About this Event

The first full award of GCE Life and Health Sciences was in Summer 2018 and to date nearly 800 candidates have been awarded this qualification, many of whom have progressed into employment/further/higher education courses that will lead to a future career within the Life and Health Sciences sector.

As there have been two awarding cycles, CCEA intends to consult and gain specific feedback from teachers, universities and employers on the current specification to ensure that it reflects the needs of learners and the society, economy and environment in which we live and work.

Having your say on CCEA GCE Life and Health Sciences

I would like to invite a suitable representative from your school with knowledge/experience of the current specification to provide feedback in relation to:

• Identifying potential specification amendments that would aid the skills and knowledge of students studying this qualification and considering a pathway into the Life and Health Sciences sector.

The specification has 16 available units.

Unit AS 1: Experimental Techniques

Unit AS 2: Human Body Systems

Unit AS 3: Aspects of Physical Chemistry in Industrial Processes

Unit AS 4: Brain Science

Unit AS 5: Material Science

Unit AS 6: Medicine, Drugs and Clinical Trials

Unit A2 1: Scientific Method, Investigation, Analysis and Evaluation

Unit A2 2: Organic Chemistry

Unit A2 3: Medical Physics

Unit A2 4: Sound and Light

Unit A2 5: Genetics, Stem Cell Research and Cloning

Unit A2 6: Microbiology

Unit A2 7: Oral Health and Dentistry

Unit A2 8: Histology and Pathology

Unit A2 9: Analytical Chemistry Techniques

Unit A2 10: Enabling Technology.

Online Questionnaire

There is also an opportunity to provide feedback via an online questionnaire.

https://ccea.org.uk/life-and-health-sciences-questionnaire

This can be completed prior to attending a focus group, but will also be particularly useful for capturing feedback from teaching colleagues who are unable to attend the face to face consultations.

We value all comments and thank you for any time that you and your colleagues can commit to providing feedback on the content of GCE Life and Health Sciences.
