Regional support

Our team of Education Coordinators and Programme Managers work to support all chemistry teachers. Based throughout the UK and Ireland, they are dedicated to helping you provide engaging and inspiring chemistry lessons for all your students.

As well as providing professional development opportunities, we organise inclusive local events and support local teacher network meetings and enrichment activities for schools.

Teacher network meetings

We fully support any events that give teachers an opportunity to get together with peers in order to help or encourage one another. Plus, we have a wealth of resources to enhance and support curriculum delivery! We would love the opportunity to share them with you at one of your teacher network meetings.

If you think your group would welcome a visit from one of our local education coordinators, please get in touch.

Enrichment activities

We believe all students should be able to enhance their classroom education through opportunities to apply the chemistry they learn in new and interesting situations and to engage with the local chemistry community.

Our regions team works with Further and Higher education partners as well as Royal Society of Chemistry local sections and interest groups to provide these opportunities.
