CPD events in July

17 Jun 2019

Check out the following CPD events put on by STEM Learning in July.

You can register for this 4 week course very soon, and get online mentor support between 15 July – 2 August 2019.

On this self-paced, online subject knowledge course, we explore a number of different mathematical strategies to enable you to solve proportional reasoning problems. Discover how seemingly unrelated mathematical problems are related to the same underlying structure. Understand how being fluent in the ideas of proportional reasoning opens the door to a deeper understanding of the rules and procedures involved, and how these methods work.


Collecting, analysing and presenting data in science requires and provides opportunity for the use and development of mathematical skills. Throughout this course, you will identify how to maximise your pupils opportunities to develop their numeracy skills and improve attainment in science by planning lessons in which children effectively handle data.

You will explore a range of strategies designed to improve children’s ability to use scientific language. You will be able to maximise the opportunities for developing literacy skills and improving attainment in science by planning lessons in which children communicate science ideas, knowledge and understanding.

On this course you will be given support to create plans for meaningful cross-curricular links within science. You will explore how to make your science stimulating, exciting and relevant to the real world. Using the new primary Curriculum you will be able to identify the value of making links between curriculum subjects.

17 July 2019 14:00-17:30 – Responding to pupil needs in science – Stretch and Challenge

Students, who are stretched and challenged, will be motivated to continue studying science. This course will consider a range of evidence based strategies that will enable you to personalise the science curriculum and determine what will work best for your students to ensure that they are engaged.
