Learning Method
Remote Delivered CPD


Are you teaching KS5 physics for the first time? Perhaps you have been teaching it for a few years and are now looking for some new ideas to get the most out of practical work. This session focuses on teaching the practical component of A-level Physics.  We will look at developing practical skills & independence in practical working; and the application of practical skills to the exam.  We will also consider the associated maths skills, particularly around graphs and uncertainties.

Who is the course leader?


By the end of the session you will

  • Have considered the role of practical work in Physics A-Level and how it is assessed
  • Have investigated the application of maths skills in practical work
  • Have evaluated opportunities for stretch and challenge of students
  • Have ideas of the role of modelling in teaching A-level physics
