In studying this certificate, you’ll gain a foundation in the main branches of chemistry and an appreciation of chemistry in all aspects of our lives. You’ll explore synthesis of organic compounds, spectroscopic analysis, the Periodic Table and reactivity, bonding and molecular shape, thermodynamics and kinetics. Online and remote experiments, combined with a short laboratory-based residential school at our Milton Keynes campus, will build your investigative and practical skills. This certificate is particularly useful if you're required to teach chemistry up to Key Stage 4, but your background is in another science, or if you're thinking about training to be a chemistry teacher.
