Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5059)
"An excellent resource... lessons were explicit with good notes and suggested questions" – S Littler, BTEC Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This resource could be used in numerous ways to enhance learning. The lesson notes support individual learning which could be during the main teaching time or during revision. They are sufficiently detailed to support learners aiming for distinctions but also provide accessible information for pass level learners. The questions provide plenty of chance for assessment of learning and could easily be used for self or peer assessment. They could also be combined to develop formal assessment tools. The material provides a clear route through the unit.The lesson objectives are clearly linked to the specification and the content of the lesson matches this. The notes pages are also well matched to the specification and often go into a good level of detail to ensure that learners can reach the highest requirements of the specification.I really liked the idea of the lesson plans with clear objectives and starter/plenary ideas. I also really liked the notes in support of each lesson really useful and very well put together and written.The resource also does several jobs in one so is excellent value for money"A Hemming, Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"This is an excellent resource for busy teachers as many features are time saving and at the same time help a student to understand the basic concepts of applied science... The scheme of work template is effective and the exam style questions are excellent" F Savery, BTEC Applied Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4715)
"Very user friendly and easy to follow – good progression of work leading to relevant assignments which is useful. The assignments match up exactly with the BTEC spreadsheet produced by Edexel which make it straightforward to record assignments. Matches Edexel beautifully. The packs save valuable time which can be used in other ways to develop the course instead of writing assignments and preparing resources. – C Burley, Lead Teacher of BTEC & ZigZag Customer
"Very thorough and well thought out... Covers all the details needed for the course" – M Smith, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
This is a fully inclusive resource, well worth buying. The pack contains nice comprehensive student notes with highlighted reminder, distinction and summary sections. Excellent content has stretch and challenge elements, appropriate for level 2 and a reminder for level 3 students. I like the very clear dot and cross diagrams. Equations and calculations are clearly explained in the student notes and each section has an engaging point of interest box – E Texter, BTEC Applied Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"The fact that there are so many ideas and opportunities as to how to achieve the skills makes this resource a useful tool in delivering the new suite of BTECs... The assignment brief is well structured, the graphics are clear and eye catching, and the resource is worded in student friendly language. Having taught part of this topic now, BTEC students have struggled to understand the terminology and I think that this resource is very clear and easy to follow... I really like the way that each lesson is differentiated and these include differentiation in knowledge and tasks too. It is easy to see where each task relates to a particular skill that must be achieved and the increasing difficulty of the differentiation will make it easier for students to progress to merit and distinction skills" R Waller, BTEC Applied Science Co-ordinator, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"The plenary sessions on the whole are excellent and clearly linked to the lesson objectives... Lessons are detailed and laid out well and topics build up to enhance the students understanding" F Savery, BTEC Applied Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"The everyday language, modern lifestyle references and occasional humour give the work a nice accessible feel" E Williams, Science Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4716)
"Sound, appropriate, and comprehensive... It would appeal to teachers and pupils alike" E Williams, Science Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4717)
"An excellent resource with lots of guidance. One could just print it out and start teaching with it. I liked the good use of case studies and the illustration of whats needed for distinction level. The assignment briefs were good and there was a nice use of practicals to support learning" – M Smith, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"I would certainly use this resource in my teaching... It makes the content much more accessible for teachers and students alike. Activities are interesting and I especially like the extension boxes giving advice on how to obtain the distinction... The assignments are very well written with an interesting context" D Davidson, BTEC Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4718)
"A great ready to use resource... Each learning aim from the specification is fully addressed; the lessons are very well thought out and there are a range of activities which aim to fully engage students. The more challenging topics are simplified effectively to aid student understanding. The tasks and activities also stretch and challenge the more able students" – E Texter, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"Very good... clearly structured and will guide the teacher and learner in completing the unit" – P Watson, BTEC Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4719)
"An excellent piece of work... Introduces each concept in very readable well-constructed text, enhanced by appropriate quality diagrams and photos. It makes the sometimes difficult concepts as accessible as possible. The lesson plans are very clear and the wealth of questions are a particular strength" E Williams, Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4720)
"This is a comprehensive pack that has been put together very well, overall an excellent resource. It ensures that the students are well prepared and have a good understanding of topics so that they can tackle the assignment briefs effectively... Really nice comprehensive lesson plans, they are concise on one sheet with objectives. It is always helpful to have a scheme of work that includes the guided hours which can then be modified to the departments needs. All criteria are covered from the new specification. There are well written assignment briefs, interesting starters, well thought-out lessons, useful formative plenaries, linked homework tasks, nice tips and D box for distinction grade students. I like the further your learning sections which are great for challenging the more able student" E Texter, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"Pitched at the right level... The language is easy to understand and the scientific content is accurate and well written" D Davidson, BTEC Science Teacher & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4721)
"This is an excellent resource that can be applied to sciences outside of BTEC (other KS3 and KS4 sciences /GCSEs). The specification is broken down into appropriate lessons which meet the BTEC criteria for this unit. The tasks are varied allowing for a range of assessments. I really like the range of questions available to the learners as they allow the weaker student to gain confidence in the topic prior to the exam style questions. The specification for this unit is nicely divided up into numbered lessons with content. Really nice comprehensive lesson plans; they are concise and on one sheet with objectives. Well thought-out lessons, the content covers scientific skills from all three scientific backgrounds. There are useful formative plenaries and summative exam style questions" E Texter, Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"A very high quality resource that would be a valuable asset to a science department delivering BTEC Applied Science... All the key definitions and concepts are covered along with plenty of practice... The approach is flexible enough to address different styles of delivery" D Davidson, BTEC Teacher & Independent Reviewer
