Secondary governors: Raising the profile of STEM in your school NR200 / D20

Start date
17 May 21
2 Hours
Learning Method
Remote Delivered CPD


The role of governors in providing support and challenge to curriculum and senior leaders is more important now than it ever has been. Schools are currently facing a great deal of uncertainty and their success in navigating through this period depends on strong and informed leadership.

The course will equip school governors with the skills and understanding they need in order to provide appropriate challenge to middle and senior leaders around the intent, implementation and impact of their STEM curriculum. You will also look more widely at how, as a governor, you can support the development of positive attitudes towards STEM education and STEM employability skills through non-curriculum based approaches, such as science capital and STEM Ambassadors.

Group booking discounts are available on many of our courses. Please contact us for further information.


You will be able to:

  • understand the key considerations around curriculum intent in STEM education and how it shapes pupils' experiences
  • understand the main considerations around planning a STEM curriculum and the importance of building science capital
  • gain confidence in approaching collaborative conversations and challenging middle and senior leaders
