Teachers' Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

We offer a range of CPD opportunities tailored to the requirements of local and regional chemistry and science teachers to support and enhance the teaching and learning of chemistry. These activities are available on demand and as announced.

Our Outreach Officer, Dr Peter Hoare, is actively involved in the delivery of a variety of Chemistry and Science CPD courses from a range of providers, including:

Dr Hoare has delivered or co-delivered several 'Active Approaches' courses including the generic national course often run as three twilight sessions across a half-term in various venues. Dr Hoare has also delivered two on the theme of 'Transition Metals' (with Anne Willis from Northumbria) which was a very hands-on practical course.

Dr Hoare is also involved in supporting specific professional development sessions across the Newcastle Secondary Science PGCE course. These include specialist sessions for the chemists and non-specialist sessions for the biologists and/or physicists.

Bespoke sessions can always be arranged, tailored to the specific requirements of individual teachers and schools. Please contact us for further details.
