Chemistry for science teachers

In-person teacher professional development courses from the Royal Society of Chemistry

Our Chemistry for science teachers course (formerly Chemistry for non-specialists) has been designed to equip you with the confidence, flair and enthusiasm to teach chemistry at pre-16 level. If you teach secondary chemistry but have a background in another subject, this course is for you.

Over four or five days, you’ll get the opportunity to:

  • develop your understanding of key pre-16 chemistry ideas
  • fully immerse yourself in learning with one or two residential periods
  • boost your confidence in teaching practical chemistry.
