This course is designed to help newly qualified teachers to develop their own practical skills and understanding of how to teach practical chemistry to secondary aged students. Participants will experience a variety of strategies and supporting student activities, and then have the opportunity to make an action plan to improve their own skills and understanding of practical work.


You will be able to:

  • rehearse relevant and interesting practical experiments and demonstrations to help inspire and engage your students
  • design, plan and implement interesting and effective practical work (including demonstrations) in chemistry teaching
  • understand how models can be used to explore fundamental concepts in chemistry
