Working with partners, we’ll support and motivate teachers to give students across the UK an inspiring and relevant science education.
All teachers and technicians should have regular, high-quality continuing 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 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.
We can use knowledge about how people learn to develop and test evidence-informed teaching practices that 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 look at pupils’ views of science and how these link to the practice and experience of their science leaders.
We conduct deeper interviews with teachers to explore the findings of our 'State of the nation' report.
