Event Description
This training is aimed at science subject leaders who are either new to the role or looking to enhance their contribution to improving science across the school.

Throughout this three-part course, delegates will gain an in depth understanding of the role of science leader and develop the skills and knowledge to lead with confidence.

Delegates will develop their capacity to evaluate teaching and learning across a range of evidence to drive improvement throughout the school. The science curriculum will be unpicked to explore sequencing and progression in both subject knowledge and working scientifically skills. This will enable subject leaders to deepen their subject-specific knowledge and understanding.

Delegates are expected to attend all three parts of the training. The cost of this course will be £180.
