Summary

Practical science is an important part of every science teacher’s training. Unfortunately the current circumstances have meant that trainees, NQTs and RQTs have not had the same experience to develop their practical teaching. This is why we have developed a 2 year programme to support our 'early secondary career network' which sits alongside and enhances the Early Career Framework.
Option 1 - £450 per teacher
Three full days of practical CPD – one per half term for the first three half terms on these topics:
  • Biology - DATE TBC
  • Chemistry - DATE TBC
  • Physics - DATE TBC
These will look at common practicals, common misconceptions surrounding these practicals, troubleshooting tips and links to required practicals and exams. (Lunch & refreshments included).THE DATES OF THE PRACTICALS WILL BE CONFIRMED NEARER THE TIME. 
There will also be additional locally based network meeting(s) which may be face to face if there is a high demand.
