Practical work can be a barrier to the effective delivery of triple science as some teachers feel they do not have the confidence, time or ability to develop their students’ learning through practical work. You may also need support in understanding how practical work is assessed in triple science, how it can be managed effectively in your classroom and where to find engaging practical activities.

In this session you will explore these issues, reflect on how they impact on your teaching and develop ways of confidently using practical work to develop learning - with a focus on linking to GCSE exams.
