Since lockdown, we have been organising our full programme of conferences online. We will continue online until further notice, to ensure we play our part in helping our employees and delegates to remain safe during this time. We are pleased that so many key stakeholders, policymakers and other interested parties - both old friends and new delegates - are taking up the opportunity to discuss public policy issues and network at our impartial seminars. New events are coming on to our conference programme all the time. So there are plenty of opportunities for you to join us if you haven’t already, from wherever you are.

Next steps for science education and STEM skills provision - participation, teaching and progression to higher level study

October 2017


The seminar focused on science at secondary level in England.


Timed to follow the completion of the first full year of teaching the reformed GCSE science qualifications, delegates shared latest thinking on the new Key Stage 4 curriculum and assessment patterns rolled out in September 2016.


They also discussed the position of practical science in schools, as well as key issues for the science teaching profession and how to further increase interest in science careers, in light of the December 2016 announcement of a £12.1m investment into science teacher training and Continuing Professional Development.


Further sessions looked at STEM careers and preparation for university, as well as how schools might further increase participation in science to tackle the productivity gap and drive growth in the UK economy.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
