Physics CPD @ SSERC
Welcome to the area of the SSERC website on which you will find details of our professional development support for physics.
In SSERC we are proud of the quality and the variety of courses which we offer to teachers of physics and we recognise the need for professional development opportunities which focus on offering support at a time of significant curriculum change.
Within SSERC we have developed a range of courses which focus on practical, hands-on activities that are easily applied in the classroom. Our course offerings range from early secondary to Advanced Higher and we offer both residential and non-residential opportunities.
Skills for Work: Laboratory Science National 5
A new course, Skills for Work: Laboratory Science National 5, has recently been introduced into schools and colleges in Scotland. This 2-part course will run 22-23 September with part 2 on 9th February 2018.
Our consultations with colleagues in schools and colleges indicate that Laboratory Science National 5 is often taught by an individual teacher who may lack detailed subject knowledge in aspects outside their own area(s) of expertise. We plan to support the Laboratory Science National 5 course by offering participants the opportunity to explore laboratory procedures and practices which can be used in delivery across the course.
If you are teaching or working as a technician in a Local Authority funded-school in Scotland you will qualify for an ENTHUSE Bursary of £480 from the National STEM Learning Centre (NSLC) which will cover registration and accommodation costs associated with the course.
