Creating a buzz with Primary Engineer
We recently teamed up with Primary Engineer to deliver online teacher CPD sessions for 10 primary schools in the West of England region.
The sessions were focused on delivering an engineering activity in class, supporting pupils to build their own electric car. Primary Engineer supplied all participants with the materials required to run the session, so they were able to follow along in real time and build their own cars with support from their session leader.
Teachers from Ashton Gate Primary, Horfield CEVC Primary, Little Stoke Primary, St Werburghs Primary, Parson Street Primary, Broomhill Junior, St Barnabas Primary, Wellesley Primary, Nova Primary, and Barton Hill Academy all attended the sessions online.
Excellent training. Explanation was very thorough and the trainer was incredibly patient and supportive. The resources available and next steps are incredible and allows the school to actively participate in STEM with confidence.Primary Engineer Electric Car CPD Participant
Feedback from the participants was really positive, and we were very pleased to note that the new online delivery method worked well.
We’re really looking forward to being able to meet our local teachers in person again and support sessions like this together, but it’s great to see activities like this working in a remote environment too. A silver lining to this lockdown is that online events can sometimes allow more people to access the training and support they need, when they need it.
If you are a local teacher and would like to know more about the support on offer for you and your school, please get in touch with our team who are always happy to help.
