Training Programme: Improving secondary science

10:00–15:00 on 13 December 2018

On Friday 21st September 2018 the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) published its latest guidance report, designed to support secondary science teaching. Improving secondary science reviews the best available research and offers schools and science teachers seven clear and actionable recommendations on how to boost their pupils’ attainment in science.

Previous research by the EEF found that there is a gap in science outcomes between disadvantaged pupils and their classmates at every stage in the education system. The gap first becomes apparent at Key Stage 1 (ages 5–7) and only gets wider throughout primary and secondary school and on to A-level.

This training programme is designed to support secondary science teachers with understanding and then implementing the recommendations in this report.  This will help science teachers to ensure that every pupil – but particularly those from disadvantaged homes – receive a high-quality and well-rounded grounding in science and an interest that may lead them to further study.
