Proficiency Award 3 in Applied Science VSC002

The Proficiency Award 3 in Applied Science programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks. Real-world exercises are used throughout the program. 

Proficiency Award 3 in Applied Science

  • Work in Applied Science
  • Job Opportunities are probably far greater than what you imagine
  • This Proficiency Award 3 has real advantages over even a degree in science
  • Learn things that will make you more employable, or better prepared to set up your own business

This is a unique Proficiency Award 3 designed for people wishing to work or already working in science related jobs that want to further their knowledge and understanding in sciences, to improve employability and further your professional career. Also, this course provides an achievable step towards a career you want, as an opportunity to test the water before commiting to higher qualifications.

The Proficiency Award 3 qualification requires the completion of 20 modules, including Research I and II, plus 100 hr of industry meetings. 

Applied science is a discipline of science that applies existing scientific knowledge to develop more practical applications, such as technology or inventions.

Within natural science, disciplines that are basic science, also called pure science, develop information to predict and perhaps explain—thus somehow understand—phenomena in the natural world. Applied science applies the basic science toward practical endeavors. Applied science is typically engineering, which develops technology, although there might be feedback between basic science and applied science: research and development (R&D).

Medical sciences, for instance medical microbiology and its clinical virology, are applied sciences that apply biology toward medical knowledge and inventions, but not necessarily medical technology, whose development is more specifically biomedicine or biomedical engineering. Applied science can also apply formal science, such as statistics and probability theory, as in epidemiology. Genetic epidemiology is an applied science applying both biological and statistical methods.
