Early Years & Primary Professional Learning

SSERC offers a range of STEM professional learning opportunities for Early Years and Primary practitioners.  Our professional learning is centred around practical, hands-on activities, which are linked to the Curriculum for Excellence.

Face to face

We offer face-to-face courses and online sessions, including SSERC Meets.  Many of our courses feature resource kits, allowing you to try activities in the classroom or share your learning with colleagues.  Supportive online materials are also provided.  Most of our professional learning opportunities come at no cost to your setting or are supported by funding.

You can find out more about each course and apply for a place below.

What is a SSERC Meet?

A SSERC Meet is an online twilight session providing STEM professional learning, at no cost to your setting.  Successful applicants receive a resource kit to support the session, containing enough resources for multiple practitioners to take part, as well as access to supportive online materials. 

You and your colleagues will join us live on Teams from 3:30 – 5pm to take part in a range of practical STEM activities using the resource kit provided, and will be able to ask questions and share ideas during the session.  We ask all practitioners attending to register and complete a reflective evaluation process.

SSERC Meets are funded by the Edina Trust and Scottish Government.

Please contact us at primary@sserc.scot with queries about any of our professional learning, or to discuss bespoke courses which can be offered.
