    Have you seen our Newly Appointed Primary Science Coordinator Training? 22-23 – 5 October 2022

    by Cormac Wilton -

    Taking on the leadership of science can appear a daunting task for many new science coordinators, especially at a time when its place in the curriculum is under greater scrutiny.

    This one-day training session will help new coordinators gain a clear understanding of what science teaching and learning should be like and identify what they need to do to further develop the subject in their own school.

    Part of the cost of the training includes a half day visit from either Kevin Neil, County Inspector for Science, or Emma Cooper, General Inspector/Adviser for Science, to support your school’s specific challenges/developments.

    This course is offered in the Autumn and Spring terms.
