The Derby and Derbyshire Science Learning Partnership (SLP) covers all of the Derby and Derbyshire geographical area, including Chesterfield in the north and Swadlincote in the south.
Our aim is to allow all staff to support students to ensure they are the best that they can be and we are proud to have provided teachers, technicians and other educators with high impact, subject-specific professional development in science and other STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
As well as a wide range of science courses we also encourage schools to consider bespoke CPLD (previously CPD) designed to match their development needs through high impact professional development in both pedagogy and subject specific content.
We work with individuals or whole school teams to develop science curriculums, hold network groups for science leaders, NQT/RQT’s and technicians to develop and share the expertise within the schools in our region.
We appreciate the challenges and concerns which face leaders of science and are happy to discuss how we can work together to support and develop all members of the science community.
