Entry Level Cert Science...?

Optimistic ask here, but you never know on mumsnet!

I'm teaching ELC biology this year on new spec and there are NO published resources anywhere in the whole wide world, as far as I can tell. I've tried TES; resource searches for ELC, SEN, LA etc - but not getting much. They are a niche group, and stuff for KS2 or 3 just doesn't work either, without massive editing.

Any ideas for where I could look for resources, please?
Thanks in advance!

Anything on the exam boards websites?

Would this be useful?

Thanks both - much appreciated. Unfortunately we are OCR which is a really different spec, and the new one has no accompanying textbook.

We can't be the only school doing it, so am intrigued!

Entry numbers might be really tiny though, hence no published resources. I have taught qulaificqtions before for which entry numbers were so low it wasn't worth anyone's time writing a textbook.
As a school as far as I know we are entering 1 kid for entry level science this summer out of a year group of about 270.
Sorry not much help really.
Though hopefully some of these may be some use, ( from the AQA ELC section)

I’ve only experienced aqa ELC which runs alongside GCSE, just have to differentiate right down as the content follows the same pattern. Old KS3 worksheets have been useful (Starting Science).

Hi. Did you find much? I am just starting from scratch for all my resources. If want to share please contact me at cwilsher@st-nicholas.southend.sch.uk.
