Our professional development opportunities for Post-16 establishments. These are hosted across the county and are tailored to the current needs and trends in Science education at the moment. Below is a list of upcoming events, but if you're unable to see what you're after please browse the further educationcourse brochureor consider getting touch so that we may work to provide you with a more bespoke package of support.

Preparing to teach level 3 BTEC applied science

Preparing to teach level 3 BTEC applied science

This course will help you to prepare for teaching Level 3 BTEC Applied Science (NQF) and will focus on pedagogical methods, ideas and resources to teach the first three mandatory units (Unit 1 (Principles and Application of Science I), Unit 2 (Practical Scientific Techniques and Procedures) and Unit 3 (Science Investigative Skills)). You will learn how to deliver these units in an accessible and engaging way, within an applied context. The course will also focus on the most effective methods to prepare learners for externally assessed components of the specification.

Effective Delivery of blended practical work (post-16)

Effective Delivery of blended practical work (post-16)

Delivery of practical science is likely to remain a challenge for a considerable time, given the current climate of uncertainty. It is therefore timely to look at strategies, techniques and resources that can support the delivery of practical science via blended delivery methods. The purpose of this course will be to evaluate different methods of blended delivery which can support learners to develop their practical knowledge and skills. You will gain insight from case studies of FE Colleges that have successfully adopted a blended approach, identify various resources that can assist with blended delivery of practical science and learn from current practitioners
