CPD and Teacher Training

Are you looking for a unique CPD course that will inspire you and your department? Our STEM inspired CPD day for teachers, ITT and science technicians will send you on a journey, looking at ways to take learning outside the classroom and relate STEM subjects to real life events.


Study visits to sites of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) aims to enhance subject knowledge and understanding about applications of science and involves working with experts in the field. Study visits are also useful for checking out the potential of a site for a possible visit and becoming familiar with resources that can be used in school or college


You will be able to:

  • Enhance your subject interest and knowledge of contemporary science in real life contexts
  • Increase your confidence and knowledge of locations to facilitate learning outside the classroom
  • Develop your awareness of careers in STEM subjects and consider how to improve students’ knowledge of STEM progression routes


If you are interested in putting yourself on this course or even your whole department please contact the education team today for further information and upcoming dates.

Cost of the course is £90 per person and includes lunch.


Many thanks for the STEM course on Tuesday. I am still buzzing with ideas for use in lessons and for linking with the zoo. I felt that it was honestly the most useful course that I have been on (in 13 years of teaching!).

First can I just add additional thanks to you, your team, the volunteers and animals for yesterdays inset. Everything was brilliant, by a long mile the best of all the insets I've ever attended in 11 years teaching.
