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.

School resources

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.
