We are looking for teachers with the CPD Quality Mark accreditation to lead science professional development courses at the National STEM Learning Centre in York. 

Already gained accreditation? 

If you have already worked your way through the STEM Learning Facilitator Development Programme to either lead or senior facilitator level, we are calling upon your skill and expertise to help us deliver our suite of well-established and successful science continuing professional development (CPD) courses at the National STEM Learning Centre.

become more skilled in evaluating the classroom impact of interventions

develop and be part of a network of specialists in teacher development

be recompensed for your time and any expenses 

Benefits to your school

As well as many personal benefits to you, your school will also benefit from your facilitator role as you will:

bring the latest research and evidence-based approaches back to your own school

apply high-quality approaches to professional development in your own school, benefiting colleagues

be more skilled in evaluating the impact of interventions, ensuring efforts are directed effectively

be part of a network of specialists in teacher development, sharing practice and reducing workload

Interested in training to lead professional development?

If you're interested in the opportunity above, but haven't started working towards CPD Quality Mark accreditation, the first step would be to join stage 1 of the Facilitator Development Programme. If you have existing experience in facilitating teacher development, a different starting stage might be more appropriate for you, and we would be more than happy to discuss that with you.
