Studying science will open up a vast range of possibilities for your future. You might end up working in a high-tech research laboratory, investigating environmental issues around the world or using your scientific knowledge to help tomorrow’s generation. Alternatively, the analytical and problem-solving skills you develop might lead you to choosing work in a completely different vocation.

The science programmes at Stoke on Trent College are taught by a team of experienced staff either in the new Science and Technology Centre that has been developed with Staffordshire University or at the Cauldon Campus. Progression is either into Apprenticeships, employment, or to university.

Jobs in medicine can be very rewarding, and with jobs in both the NHS and the private sector available, medicine is a major employer in the UK.
