Are you teaching KS3 science for the first time? Would you like to understand the misconceptions students have, and how best to address them?

This course has been designed to focus on the key principles needed to teach science effectively through the use of stimulating practical activities and demonstrations. We will explore and refine the understanding of key topics like energy, cells and chemical reactions. We will look at cutting edge research that will link the learning to students' everyday lives and look at scaffolding the learning to show rapid and sustained progression.

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.


You will be able to:

  • teach Key Stage 3 science confidently by effectively using a range of teaching strategies to assess students’ prior understanding, counter misconceptions and move learning forward
  • describe developments in science and how it relates to the topics that are being taught making the science more relevant to learners
  • evaluate the impact of a change within your teaching
