Overview of our Physics CPD course

Course leader Adam Little, who has worked as a Professional Development Leader at the National STEM Learning Centre in York, teaches the techniques and methods behind educating the new science curriculum. 

Science teachers will be given the skills to help build on what children observe in the natural world, helping foster the skills and mind-sets behind scientific learning. Teachers will help not only develop their students' skills and understanding, but develop minds that look for learning and inquire scientifically in their day to day life. 

Working with school teachers, and using real classroom footage, Adam Little explores practical ways to teach the Physics national curriculum in the classroom.
