However this course provides primary subject leaders and teachers the opportunity to explore best practice in primary science assessment, and a chance to investigate the resources that are available in the wider educational world. This course is ideal for primary school teachers who want to familiarise themselves with the current expectations around assessment and pupil's progress in science.
