Science Learning Partnership
Our Central Midlands Science Learning Partnership provides quality, subject-specfic, continuous professional development (CPD) for primary and secondary teachers across the Central Midlands, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We are part of a network of SLPs managed by STEM Learning.
Bishop Challoner TSA holds the contract for the Central Midlands Science Learning Partnership, delivering a whole host of Science CPD across the area. By working closely with our partners, we can organise courses that YOU want, that will benefit YOUR teachers and science technicians.
Our aim is to support school leads, teachers and technicians to develop high-quality science and STEM provision for all young people in schools and colleges locally, from primary through to A Level. We offer face to face courses through the academic year, and can also help with bespoke training solutions and one to one support.
Some programmes can attract a bursary, such as the Impact Award. This means that a reduced price can be offered, making the courses incredibly good value for money.
There is also opportunity for schools to sign up to one of our subscription offers where high quality CPD is delivered throughout the academic year for a discounted fee.
If there is a specific need within your school, it is possible to arrange a bespoke course. Please contact us to discuss which programmes may be of interest – again these can be a cost-effective way to ensure your staff are receiving the best training possible.
Upcoming CPD - Summer 2022
We've developed a series of CPD courses that cover subject knowledge, pedagogy, curriculum design and health and safety. Each course is led by one of our accredited, subject specialist facilitators and delivered remotely across a series of short, live sessions. In between, through structured tasks, you'll explore key resources, develop materials to share with colleagues and reflect on your own learning. The cost of these courses is heavily subsidised, more details can be found on each specific course.
Below are the upcoming courses for Summer 2022.
