The Brooklands College Forensic Science department are delighted to have received a certificate of endorsement from the Chartered Society of Forensic Science
The society who represents forensic sciences world-wide is the body who sets high professional standards for this field of work. During their visit they were particularly impressed with a number of things relating to the college’s Forensics course including:
1. The range of forensic topics delivered to the students
2. The opportunity to visit various courts of law (such as Magistrates, Crown and Old Bailey) was excellent for the students and the availability of the legal personnel within the court e.g. the judge taking time to discuss with the students was commendable.
3. The College makes good use of its extensive grounds for outdoor crime scene work. There was a good range of facilities including indoor scenes with CCTV, vehicles and a mock courtroom.
4. Staff at the college are actively involved in the development of the future BTEC awards.
You will have an enquiring mind, good communication skills and a methodical approach to work.
