A unique opportunity to engage with the specific challenges and opportunities presented by teaching Science and RE in Catholic schools. Comprising of a series of five twilight sessions, this conference aims to unpick some of the key talking points from the areas of convergence in the Science and RE curricula. Featuring a keynote speech from Father Andrew Pinsent (Research Director, University of Oxford), sessions aimed at Science and RE teachers and an analysis of different frameworks for viewing RE and Science from Jane Borgeaud (Senior Lecturer, University of Winchester), the conference will provide insight and support for all teachers of RE and Science in Catholic Schools.


Please note: the £300 fee is per institution and covers all staff from that institution.
