Explore methods to raise awareness of the myriad of STEM related career opportunities. Learn how to interpret and strategically use LMI reports to inform curriculum planning. Accurately map the curriculum to embed good careers guidance (including the Gatsby benchmarks) and ensure that learners have meaningful...

CLEAPSS Supporting safe and successful classroom physicsRP655

This 1-day course (about 5 hours excluding breaks) is designed to enable secondary school science laboratory technicians to be more  confident in supporting the teaching of practical physics. It also provides a valuable opportunity for technicians to meet together and share expertise. This course assumes a basic...

Developing expertise in structure and bonding; and carbon chemistryRP267

Developing expertise in teaching carbon chemistry (morning session). Using molecular models, this course develops delegates' understanding of simple carbon chemistry and makes links between the underlying chemistry and teaching and learning activities. Developing teaching structure and bonding up to KS4 (afternoon...

Developing expertise in teaching analytical techniques (post-16)RP266

This course is to help participants who are relatively new to teaching or are new to teaching chemistry post-16. The focus is on the underlying properties of elements and compounds that enable them to be separated from a mixture and to identify them, e.g. in spectroscopy, the quantisation and different energy gaps...

Developing expertise in teaching carbon chemistry RP257

Using molecular models, this course develops participants' understanding of simple carbon chemistry and makes links between the underlying chemistry and teaching and learning activities.

Developing expertise in teaching developing and using modelsRP264

Develop an understanding of how chemists use models to try to explain their observations as they formulate their ideas and theories. Chemistry is the study of materials both on the macroscopic and sub-microscopic levels. During chemistry lessons, teachers are constantly switching between these two levels, ie, from...

Developing expertise in teaching energy and changeRP265

An introduction to the key chemical ideas needed to understand energy changes. Participants will explore common misconceptions associated with this topic and review a range of strategies for dealing with these misconceptions. Opportunities will also be given to try out a range of relevant and engaging experiments...

Developing expertise in teaching equilibria chemistryRP259

An opportunity for participants to explore chemical reactions at the microscopic and macroscopic level, in both open and closed systems. Research shows that many students have difficulties understanding the core ideas associated with equilibria, even though they can often manage to do the related calculations. So...
