The Science Learning Partnership

The Science Learning Partnership

 

The Carmel/Framwellgate Science Learning Partnership is a joint partnership between the Carmel Teaching Alliance (Framwellgate School Durham, Carmel College) and Sheffield Hallam University to deliver effective professional development for Science teachers in both primary and secondary schools in Durham, Darlington and surrounding areas. Working within the National Science Learning Network, the SLP is working with local schools to help them with self-evaluation and to access professional learning, networks of teachers and technicians and bespoke support.

 

What we can offer local schools?

 

  • face to face and online courses from common programme (led by SHU)
  • a science NQT support programme
  • facilitating Science Subject Leaders forums (primary and secondary)
  • the development of action research clusters
  • mentoring/coaching and lesson observation feedback 
  • brokering and facilitating bespoke CPD with individual departments
  • providing consultancy services to schools
  • supporting teachers who follow a linked accreditation route
  • facilitating resource development with Partnership teachers
  • building CPD delivery capacity through facilitated CPD development including 'train the trainer' programmes

 

The Partnership has run a range of CPD activities to date, including conferences for newly-qualified science teachers, events focusing on the primary science curriculum, and phase-specific network events. A big focus has been the standing out in science programme, which has been run for both primary and secondary science teachers. This programme mixes CPD inputs with opportunities to put these into practice in the classroom, observe and be observed by peers, and reflect on feedback and learning.
