Physics Programme

Overview

This DfE funded programme will allow you to develop your teaching practices to enhance engagement, reduce misconceptions and ultimately increase attainment within physics.

The programme will consist of:

  • 6 masterclasses (twilights, half termly);
  • Physics SLE coaching visit;
  • Opportunity to gain York St John University accreditation through the Local Independent Project.

You will explore:

  • How to support and enhance your existing Physics knowledge;
  • Key areas of the Physics curriculum;
  • Development of key pedagogical skills focusing on engagement, practical ideas and differentiation.

This programme will support you to develop key Teaching & Learning Strategies which can be shared across your department.  It may also support you to lead on Physics in your school.

2020/21 Programme dates will be confirmed shortly
