You do not have to complete one module to attend another.

Module 2 will help you find new ways of helping your learners to understand topics that are a crucial part of both UK and Irish curricula. Within each session, there’s time to discuss ideas and share your previous experience, plus opportunities to ask questions and get guidance from our expert facilitators.

Module details

We will be covering key chemistry curriculum topics taught across the UK and Ireland.

This course is most suited to teachers who may be:

  • early on in their career (but not a student or trainee)
  • looking to add to their existing knowledge and confidence
  • keen to gather new ideas and resources for teaching key topics.

The format is a series of four sessions – you will complete these once a month between January and April. By completing the sessions, you will qualify for a certificate of attendance to add to your professional development portfolio/record.

We will also ask you to complete some short tasks outside of the sessions, which you will discuss with your course facilitator and fellow participants during the sessions. These will be provided approximately 1 month in advance of each session on the module event support page (which you will be given access to).
