Because of the forthcoming changes to the specifications for the first teaching in 2015 there will not be any SAC workshops this summer.
Updates will be via newsletter and website.
Welcome to Salters’ Advanced Chemistry website. This Advanced level chemistry course, developed at the Science Education Group in the University of York, offers an exciting, context based approach to studying chemistry. The course is currently followed by over 17000 students across the United Kingdom. We work closely with OCR (the examination board) who offer dedicated assessment for the course.
The website is currently under construction and pages will be regularly added over the next few months.
A series of exciting new resources have been added to to the DIY page to support teaching and learning of SAC. These include a number of revision resources to support preparation for examinations. If you have any resources you would like to share with other teachers please send them to Chris on firstname.lastname@example.org

Our CIEC Promoting Science (link to CIEC: http://www.ciec.org.uk/) group have recently compiled a comprehensive online reference library (link to: http://www.essentialchemicalindustry.org) of the world's principal industrial chemicals.
It is intended for school, college and university students and their teachers, as well as industrial chemists and employees of chemical companies requiring a quick reference or overview.
This new web-based edition has been developed from the latest (5th) edition of the book 'The Essential Chemical Industry'.
Written by members of CIEC staff, and with the advice of over 200 experts in the field, the site is systematically reviewed and updated to ensure that it remains relevant and authoritative. The units are illustrated with over 220 photographs and diagrams, many companies providing recent and specially commissioned photographs to illustrate specific points raised in the text.
