You will explore what it means to be an independent, motivated learner of science by the age of 16, and how science teachers can develop independence by this age, preparing for post-16 sciences and beyond. During the course you will explore and develop practical approaches to helping learners actively engage, contribute, question, and read and write about science – by thinking of your science lessons through the lens of learners’ motivations, choices and challenges throughout KS3-4.




  • Clarify the scope of independent learning – to what extent can we develop independent, motivated learners of science to the age of 16?
  • Share and critique a wide range of approaches to independent learning
  • Develop an approach that works for your KS3 and KS4 pupils
