Secondary STEM CPD

Secondary STEM CPD, delivered in Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire, Leicester, Leicestershire & Northants: Courses and network meetings for teachers and technicians in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths as well as general science.

The following packages provide opportunities to network and learn with colleagues in the same role in other schools. The sessions are aimed at subject leaders and other key school staff. Each session is professionally facilitated by STEM consultants.

“It is paramount that leaders ensure that science teachers and technicians have access to regular, high-quality subject-specific continuous professional development (CPD). This is especially important in science given that many teachers are teaching outside of their subject specialism.”
