We’ve committed £45 million to building and supporting the National STEM Learning Centre. It’s one of the main places for teachers and technicians around the UK to access CPD.
Bursaries are available through Project ENTHUSE. They can be used towards travel, staff cover and course fees for teachers and technicians.
Research shows that schools want more guidance on the quality of CPD they commission. In partnership with the Education Endowment Foundation, we’re scoping a project to design and test a system for teachers that will make it easier for them to find quality-assured CPD.
The Wellcome CPD Challenge is exploring what changes need to be made to the education system so that all teachers are entitled to take part in high-quality, predominantly subject-specific CPD. The three-year pilot study, which started in September 2018, is running in 40 schools across South Yorkshire. Read our report on progress during the first year.
Research into the impact of continuing professional development
The largest open collection of resources for science, technology, engineering and maths teachers in the UK is hosted by the National STEM Learning Centre and funded by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation.
