This new 2-day course will focus on laboratory skills to support the Advanced Higher Chemistry. Laboratory and other sessions will follow an interactive approach that aims to cover key areas of the Advanced Higher course with a particular focus on experimental and investigative skills.

Practical work will be supported by keynote presentations from external speakers. Combined with opportunities for professional networking, the course offers participants a rich and vibrant programme that will enhance teaching and learning within their institutions.

The Advanced Higher Chemistry course will be held at SSERC, Dunfermline.  All meals and overnight accommodation is included in the course fee.


Applications are welcome from teachers from all schools and FE colleges. Applicants from Local Authority-funded schools and FE colleges will be entitled to receive an ENTHUSE Bursary (administered through the National STEM Learning Centre) upon completion of the course.
