Our courses


Who are these courses for?

These courses are suitable for teachers in all career stages, but are not typically suitable for trainee/student teachers in the first two terms of their training year. The courses expect a basic level of subject knowledge and are ideally suited if you are new to teaching chemistry; you have recently focused on another subject and would like to boost your knowledge; or you are returning from a teaching break.

How much do the courses cost?

Nothing at all! Our sustained professional development courses are free to join for Teach Chemistry members, although places are limited.

What will I learn?

The courses are designed to support practical skills, enhance your existing knowledge of key subjects (you should already have a basic understanding of the topics covered) and offer teaching strategies for delivering key areas of the chemistry curriculum. You’ll explore common misconceptions, contextualise tricky topics and receive links to classroom-ready resources.

We have found that these courses are most impactful if you are able to apply what you have learned soon after taking the course – ideally within 12 months of your attendance.

Are the courses recognised? Will I receive a certificate?

Absolutely. Each course is recognised CPD, so you will receive a certificate of attendance for your professional development portfolio/record once you have completed all of your chosen course’s sessions.

To qualify for the certificate of attendance, you must attend all sessions and complete all required tasks.
