Science Learning Partnerships

Our Science Learning Partnerships (SLPs) combine local expertise in teaching and learning in science, facilitating CPD, and providing school-to-school support.

They are led by local teaching school alliances, schools and colleges with excellence in science, higher education institutions, and other local partners with cutting-edge expertise in science.

Use this map to find your local SLP and contact them to find out how they can help you develop the teaching of science in your school or college.
