Overview

Level 2 Certificate in Fundamentals of Biology

Biology is a natural science that examines life and living organisms, including their physical structures, chemical processes, molecular interactions, development and evolution. It is a very important aspect of science that helps us understand the world and nature around us. It is also important to identify cures and treatments for diseases as it includes the study of human body and animals. It is also greatly beneficial in preserving the life, nature and environment surrounding us. Studying the basics of biology will not just benefit professionals, studying it will also be worthwhile for every single individual throughout their lifetime.

This course in the fundamentals of Biology is aimed at providing the basics of biology for aspiring biologists, individuals looking to study further in biology and to individuals wanting to be aware of the fundamentals of Biology. This course will tutor on the scientific method and representation of scientific work and on the chemistry of living things and organic chemistry. Topics such as Dna, Rna, Enzyme. genes, chromosomes and cell division will also be explored through this course along with scrutinizing gene mutation causes and disorders and cellular metabolism. This course will further teach you on the systems of our body to the fundamentals of ecology, evolution and speciation.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
