A two-part residential course for secondary probationer teachers. This course will focus on enhancing your range of activities to help support you with the delivery of CfE in your classrooms. Over half of the practical elements on the course will be devoted to subjects outside your own subject area.

Combined with opportunities for networking, the course offers an excellent way of keeping up-to-date with developments in your subject area. Because of the nature of the programme we will be offering places with an approximately equal split between Biology, Chemistry and Physics specialists. A total of 24 places will be available.


  • Part 1: 5th – 6th February 2020
