Course summary

In the modern world, knowledge of science is essential for everyone. Everything we know about the universe, from photosynthesis to the structure of the atom, results from advances in science.

Delivered in the Environmental Laboratory in the IQ building, our secondary Chemistry programme supports you in using your passion and expertise for Chemistry. It is not just a practical subject, teaching chemistry demands your creativity to inspire young people and nurture their curiosity. It will engage all your professional skills and propel you to a fulfilling career.

Studying alongside student teachers from the Science and Technology area of learning, you will prepare to teach general science and specialise in Chemistry to the GCSE and A-level.

This exciting new curriculum will give you the freedom to be creative and work with your fellow students in the field of computing and other technology to promote STEM subjects.

Schools need more specialist chemistry teachers than ever before, therefore employability and promotional prospects are excellent.

Career Opportunities

Yr Athrofa has excellent graduate employment rates with 99% of graduates going into employment or further study.
