Derbyshire, Yorkshire and the Humber, and the North East
We are proud to be starting a new phase of the Science Learning Centres with this exciting and dynamic portfolio of continuing professional development opportunities. Having run the Science Learning Centre Yorkshire and the Humber for almost nine years we are privileged to now be responsible for a new region covering Derbyshire, Yorkshire and the Humber and the North East.
We offer a comprehensive science CPD programme for science teachers, technicians and teaching assistants across the region. Our CPD leaders are drawn from experienced educational consultants, practising teachers and partners across the region.
Much of the work we do is direct with schools, colleges, networks, clusters and alliances. This activity can be through bespoke programmes of CPD, or single courses run for your department or cluster.
During the course of the year we will also be adopting and developing a model for CPD activity and provision in the region through new Science Learning Partnerships (SLP). These partnerships are a very exciting addition to our portfolio and will see us, in time, finding and developing expertise in schools to deliver subject specific CPD to meet local or specialised needs.
We offer bursaries (known as Impact Awards and provided by the Department for Education) for many of our CPD activities. These bursaries can be used to contribute towards covering the cost of CPD fees, expenses and resources.
