“A laboratory scientist carries out technical and scientific activity in laboratories in their specialist discipline”

A laboratory scientist applies specialist knowledge and broad scientific understanding to carry out a range of technical and scientific activities in their specialist discipline, which can include chemical science, life sciences, research and development, and analysis. As a laboratory scientist apprentice, you’ll analyse, interpret and evaluate relevant scientific information, concepts and ideas, and use these to develop subsequent experiments or investigations and to propose solutions to problems. You’ll perform practical, established and novel laboratory procedures using standard and specialist laboratory equipment and instrumentation. Ensuring uniformity, consistency, reliability, reproducibility, quality, and integrity of scientific tests will underpin your work and the working environment. Upon completion of the laboratory science apprenticeship, you’ll achieve a bachelor’s degree in a scientific discipline relevant to your role.
