This collection of STEM educational reports, produced by a number of organisations, concern the teaching and learning of science. The reports include:

*Physics in schools IV: supply and retention of teachers - This report looks at specialist physics teacher supply and retention in English schools.

*Physics in schools III: bucking the trend - This report sets out to identify how some schools are increasing participation in Post-16 physics whilst the general trend is for a seemingly inexorable decline in physics education.

*Physics in schools and colleges: teacher deployment and student outcomes - This report looks at the deployment of teachers and its impact on student outcomes.

*Science education in schools: issues, evidence and proposals - This report looks at issues around improving science education in schools.

* Big Picture teaching resource: Reviewing how teachers, educationalists and young people access and use classroom resources - This report, commissioned by the Wellcome Trust, evaluates Big Picture, its free publication on bioscience, and explored ways in which it could be developed.

*The teaching of social and ethical issues in the school curriculum, arising from developments in biomedical research: a research study of teachers.

*Primary science survey report - This report presents the findings of an online survey during July 2011 for The Wellcome Trust.

*Primary science in the UK: a scoping study - This report seeks to establish an overview of the current status of primary science in the UK with particular reference to strengths and weaknesses in specific focus areas.

Physics in Schools and Colleges: Teacher Deployment and Student Outcomes

This report is provided by the Centre for Education and Employment Research (CEER) at the University of Buckingham is based on a survey of 432 schools and colleges. The report looks at the deployment of teachers and its impact on student outcomes. One finding is that teachers' qualification in physics was the most...

Science Teaching in Schools: Report with Evidence - House of Lords 2005-06

A report published by the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee (the 10th report of the session 2005-06), it focuses on secondary education in England, with regard to: *student attitudes and choices, and the effect on the take-up of science at GCSE and beyond *teaching methods *the recruitment and...

Physics in Schools IV: Supply and Retention of Teachers

This report, produced by the Centre for Education and Emplyment Research (CEER), looks at specialist physics teacher supply and retention in English schools. Physics is at the sharp end of teacher recruitment. It is the subject that schools find most difficult to staff. Some schools do not teach it, and others that...
