All teachers and technicians should have regular, high-quality professional development throughout their career so that they can improve student learning.
We’re working to transform the teaching of science in primary schools so that every pupil has an excellent first experience of science.
We support school governors and trustees to ensure their schools and colleges deliver high-quality science education.
Informal learning experiences – like visiting museums, meeting scientists, watching YouTube videos and playing games – offer huge potential for young people to engage with and learn about science in a way that works for them.
As we discover and understand more about how we learn, we can use this knowledge to guide teaching practices and help young people achieve more at school.
Our Science Education Tracker is a survey of young people’s attitudes towards and experiences of science education and careers.
We’re committed to supporting and improving practical science in schools and colleges.
We explore how access to continuing professional development helps to keep more teachers in the classroom.
We commissioned CFE Research to look at the amount and nature of science taught in primary schools across the UK, and to monitor and evaluate the impact of our primary science campaign.
