Cornwall EYFS Package RN913 / E13
This package is a series of CPD sessions is designed to provide support to science leads and EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) teachers in delivering a high-quality science curriculum. The main objectives of these sessions are to enhance teaching and learning in science and to bolster teachers' subject knowledge.
The CPD sessions aim to empower science leads and EYFS teachers with the necessary tools, strategies, and resources to effectively teach science in line with best practices. By participating in these sessions, science leads and EYFS teachers can gain a deeper understanding of the key principles and concepts of science education, enabling them to plan and deliver engaging lessons that align with the curriculum objectives. Science leads and EYFS teachers can learn about effective strategies for facilitating scientific investigations, promoting critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and encouraging students' curiosity and enthusiasm for scientific exploration.. They provide opportunities for participants to deepen their understanding of scientific concepts, principles, and theories relevant to the EYFS curriculum. This can include exploring the natural world, physical phenomena, life cycles, materials, and other fundamental scientific areas covered in early education.
By enhancing science leads' and EYFS teachers' subject knowledge, the CPD sessions enable them to deliver accurate and up-to-date information to their students. This helps foster a solid foundation of scientific understanding among young learners and prepares them for further scientific exploration as they progress through their education.
Overall, the series of CPD sessions for science leads and EYFS teachers aims to support and equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge, and confidence to provide a high-quality science curriculum. By improving teaching and learning in science and enhancing subject knowledge, these sessions contribute to creating an engaging and effective learning environment that nurtures young students' scientific literacy and curiosity.
All sessions are written by STEM Learning and other professional bodies to support the findings of the Ofsted Research Review. They are led by a science consultant to ensure that participants receive up to the minute information on science teaching and learning as well offering the opportunity to share good practice. We collaborate with other organisations such as IOP, RSC and STEM Ambassador Hubs.
Why subscribe to the package?
Package membership gives access to high quality, facilitator led, subject specific CPD. By collaborating with other schools, we increase the opportunity for sharing expertise and good practice. Science teacher have access to a network of colleagues, all of whom will be facing similar challenges and opportunities, and teachers can learn from each other. There are sometimes further opportunities for participating in projects, and schools that are already collaborating are better placed to apply for these (i.e. Ogden Trust and Enthuse partnerships)
How much does it cost my school?
The package will be priced at £350 pp including 3 face to face CPD sessions but Stem Learning are offering a teacher release subsidy of £200 which would make the price @ £150.00 per school.
How can I claim my teacher Release payment?
This teacher release payment will be applied by STEM Learning. Your school will complete a BACS form. Up front when you sign up your school would pay for the entire package and receive the TRP back at the end of the course via BACS.
We hope you can join us for this package of valuable science CPD support and we look forward to working with you and your school
