The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London is celebrating National Science and Engineering Week (15-24 March) by launching several new courses which will run alongside the Collegeâ€™s already successful portfolio of science and engineering courses.
With the College’s School of Science and Engineering graded a Level 1, the new courses will allow more students to benefit from the quality teaching and learning environment.
The new courses include a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Applied Chemistry. This will run alongside a HNC in Engineering and a BTEC Level 3 in Engineering. The three courses will give students the opportunity to progress from Level 2 and Level 3 courses while continuing to study at the College.
The College has introduced additional courses in this area due to the growing demand and need for qualified scientists, engineers and medics in the UK. Vice Principal of Curriculum and Learning Environment, Jane O’Neill, said: “Year on year we see more students who want to study in this area, so it’s a natural progression that we expand and give students what they need to succeed in the industry.”
The HNCs are highly valued by employers and are equivalent to the first year of a degree course. On completion students can progress on to a Higher National Diploma (HND), which the College plans to introduce in 2014. HNCs also cost half of current university fees, presenting a more viable option to students, and provide students with a vocational qualification, which demonstrates their skills in the workplace.
The Engineering BTEC Level 3 has been introduced to prepare students for higher education, and on completion students can progress onto the College’s HNC in Engineering.
The College also runs an Apprenticeship for Lab Technicians for employees who want to upgrade their qualifications.
