Elite Scholar Challenge Tasks are open to all!


Your first stretch and challenge learning is to do this course which has just been made free by the BSL (normally £25). You will need to provide some id to show you are the age you are and this will also allow you to get the certificate when you have completed it. The course takes 20 Hours and you have 2 weeks to complete it (starting this Monday). This course can be put on your CV for the rest of your life and is invaluable, this is an amazing opportunity that I expect you all to sieze.




Once complete please keep your certificate safe (digital one is fine) as I will be asking to see them when we are next in school.


Your next task (which is learning all about Scientists) will be released in 2 weeks time and has an end of unit test (in July so plenty of time!)

I understand BSL have closed their applications, well done to those that registered early and have got on it, for those that haven't do have another look in a week or so, you might be in luck...

In the meantime I have bought the 2 forward the 2 Science Open Learning Modules I want you to register for and complete, both are science and technology related and both are accredited OpenLearning Programs. As such you can put them on your CV and you can register and get an Activity record and earn a badge for both.

Notice they are set out in weeks (both 8 weeks I believe) and you should do both alonside each other so 1 week learning for both each week. They are really good courses, genuinely interesting and will expand your horizons!



I will be asking you all for proof you have done these when we return so do ensure you register to set up an activity record : )
