Teaching Key Stage 4 chemistry as a non-specialist can be daunting and even more so if you don’t have a science background. During this course, you will work with an experienced subject specialist to gain the substantive and disciplinary knowledge required to teach chemistry effectively.
We will help you get the best out of your students by working on their misconceptions, engaging with core practicals and supporting with their understanding in GCSE chemistry.
