Intensive CPD - remotely delivered for the remainder of the spring term due to COVID-19 restrictions

STEM Learning runs a well-established and successful face-to-face continuing professional development (CPD) programme at the National STEM Learning Centre in York.

We are planning to resume intensive face-to-face CPD at the National STEM Learning Centre as soon as possible, subject to local restrictions and government guidance.  In the meantime, all our intensive CPD courses will be delivered remotely until Easter.
Our intensive courses are interactive, as you access them in real time, allowing direct contact with course facilitators and the ability to discuss your ideas with others. It is a great way to continue your professional development wherever you are.
To participate in full you will need to ensure you have dedicated time away from the classroom, as you would if you were attending a face to face course. We will take regular breaks and structure the content so that it is interactive and impactful. You must attend all sessions in order to receive the bursary, and sessions will not be recorded.


Attendees benefit from high-impact, DfE-supported CPD that makes a proven difference to students' engagement and attainment in STEM subjects.

Grow your career with STEM Learning

Professional development is important at every stage of your career and there is always room for growth in an ever-changing workplace.

At the National STEM Learning Centre we have created a classroom environment in which you can receive intensive training as well as the chance to network and create action plans to take back to the classroom.

Those who have attended any of our courses will be awarded STEM Certificates. Awarded digitally, they showcase your achievements and build a profile of your skills and knowledge by recording the outcomes of the courses you have attended.


We offer bursaries to state-funded schools and colleges across the UK to cover course fees, supply cover, equipment and more.
