Science Teacher Training.

Whether you are a recent Science graduate or looking to change careers, our Science teacher training programme will empower you to develop your subject knowledge and the skills required to teach it. Science is a core subject in secondary schools and at the heart of STEM education. The practical element of Science not only captures the interest of students, but also enables them to develop their scientific enquiry skills and so is at the centre of our course. This, interleaved with up-to-date best practice in Science education, will facilitate you in your journey to becoming a confident, competent and inspiring Science teacher.
