National STEM Learning Centre, Heslington, York YO10 5DD How to find us


Starting out to teach A Level for the first time as an NQT can be daunting. This course will support you with  developing students' practical skills, as well as dealing with the tricky bits of the A Level curriculum. The course will split into chemistry, physics and biology groups, so you will receive two days of intense support within your own subject.

As a participant on the course, you will benefit from both highly experienced A Level teachers and ongoing support beyond the course. We will provide high quality resources for you to use, as well as ample opportunity for you to practice practical and class activities before you head into the lab in September.

Fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course in York. 

The National STEM Learning Centre will be following all government guidance and regulations to minimise risk of Covid-19 transmission, including in the deep cleaning of our accommodation and teaching rooms and maintaining social distancing during course sessions and meal times.
