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

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.
