Remote Delivered CPD


If you need help raising the profile of science in your school then this is the course for you. Whether you are new to the role of science subject leader or have been the leader for a couple of years you will be supported to bring about change at a whole school level.
This is a condensed version of the usual four-day course and is aimed at helping primary science leaders continue to develop their subject during challenging times. You will receive guidance, advice and support to help you to understand the role of the subject leader and find out about science in your school, working with experienced primary teachers to explore a range of strategies to create a vision for science teaching and learning.
Over the two days you will build your confidence and develop the expertise to support your colleagues to deliver effective and engaging science for your children.
This course will be delivered remotely on the days and times detailed below. To participate in full, you will need to ensure you have dedicated time away from the classroom, as you would if this were a face to face course. We will take regular breaks and structure the content so that it is interactive and impactful. You must attend all sessions in order to receive the bursary, and sessions will not be recorded.
