This is a chance to share information on how teaching and learning methods have progressed in the first weeks of the autumn term, learn from others and navigate through the changing world of science in further education. You will be provided with expert help from FE practitioners to identify priority issues, signpost support and will be able to develop solutions, drawing on the expertise of others within the group


You will be able to: 

  • work collaboratively to identify priorities in science teaching and learning
  • share and develop strategies to tackle issues, drawing on expertise as needed from outside the network
