This is a chance for collaboration with your peers so you can share information and develop as a leader. Expert consultants will help you identify priority issues in teaching and learning and professional development for your teams. You will be able to develop solutions, drawing on the expertise within the group. This strengthening of informal school-to-school support will create an effective network of information, advice and guidance.

Outcomes

You will be able to:

  • work collaboratively to identify priorities in science teaching and learning and in science-specific professional development for your teams
  • share and develop strategies to tackle these issues, drawing on expertise as needed from outside the network
