Education recovery focus: August
High quality teaching: early career teachers
Professional development pathways
- Development pathway for early career primary teachers
- Development pathway for early career secondary science teachers
We've launched two new groups perfect for teachers working on their early career framework. In these groups, you can ask for ideas and support, pose any questions you might have regarding the ECF and teacher standards, and seek peer-to-peer support from others going through the same process. The groups are supported by fellow STEM educators with a wealth of experience, including current and former ITT/NQT mentors and SCITT leads.
A broad and rich curriculum: STEM Ambassadors
- Inviting a STEM Ambassador into your classroom is a great way to liven up a lesson. As professional scientists, engineers, mathematicians and more, they offer their expertise to your students, enriching their subject knowledge and demonstrating real world application of their learning.
Here are some real world examples:
- Our ‘STEM Ambassador On Screen’ video playlist shows the wide breadth of topics STEM Ambassadors can cover
- The Beautiful Butterflies resource that our Central South England STEM Ambassador Hub recently released
- Many STEM Ambassadors from our Hub in Wales contributed to the 2021 Merthyr Science Festival - catch recordings of the events here
- At our recent STEM Inspiration Awards, Neil Chattle, winner of our Outstanding STEM Ambassador Awards, talked to us about the breadth of support that the programme can offer.
Taking part in an ENTHUSE Partnership increases attainment in STEM and helps narrow the gap for students living with disadvantage. It also increases interest in STEM careers and helps students become more aware of the qualifications and routes to progress in STEM. It also provides teachers with opportunities to improve their subject and pedagogical knowledge, increase confidence in linking teaching to STEM careers and support the delivery of inspiring enrichment activities.
