Around 20 per cent of the UK workforce are in science-related careers and there is a shortage of people with Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) skills. 

If you are interested in how science can unlock the secrets of a crime scene, then our courses are for you. It's not just the Police who use CSI trained staff: The Fire Service, Prisons, Customs, UK Border Agency, Private Investigation Companies and many more sectors deploy trained staff. Forensic scientists include:

  • Anthropologists
  • Entomologists
  • Biologists
  • DNA Experts
  • Ballistics Experts
  • Pathologists
  • Chemists

You can study practical, hands-on courses which can lead you to work or to university to study for a degree. The BTEC Extended Diploma in Science at Level 3 is equivalent to 3 A Levels.
