How we support schools
Support for primary science education and careers-related learning is at the heart of CIEC’s work, providing freely available resources and CPD opportunities across the country.
Our school resources consist of downloadable materials for teachers and interactive areas for children to access with teacher guidance. For teachers of the 4-12 age range, these resources promote hands-on practical enquiry, problem-solving, teamwork and discussions, and are set in real industrial contexts.
CIEC supports teachers in understanding and implementing the changes to the UK's science curriculum, and has created supporting documentation on assessment in science and progression in working scientifically.
CIEC provides a range of training and Continuous Professional Development opportunities for increasing children's science capital, and the teaching and learning of primary science. Take a look at our taster session provided by Nicky Waller for a summer 2020 conference, useful to teachers throughout the country. If you'd like something similar, please do get in touch.
