About this opportunity

We are offering heavily subsidised packages including five completely online courses for A Level Biology, so teachers and students can benefit from our excellent digital resources at a reduced rate.

All our online courses are carefully linked to the curriculum and are an invaluable resource to reduce prep time and ensure high-quality content delivered digitally.

You can choose from standard or advanced versions of each course. Advanced level courses take approximately 22 hours to complete. They provide an additional suite of pre-recorded interactive introduction and follow-up video lessons to ensure that you can complete a whole virtual field trip for each topic.

Standard level courses take approximately 10 hours to complete. Teachers will need to deliver the introduction and follow up.
