Physics Teacher Subject Specialism Training Project 2017-18

Subject Knowledge Programme for Non-Specialist Physics Teachers

The Outwood Institute of Education is delighted to offer Physics subject knowledge training for non-specialist secondary physics teachers. Participants can access a funded year-long programme – the only cost to your school is any cover costs incurred when attending sessions.

The programme will start in September 2017, if you would like to register your interest for the programme please see the booking form below. You do not have to currently be teaching Physics to be applicable although all participants must either have QTS, be employed as an unqualified teacher or have QTLS

This is a modular programme which will offer 21 sessions in total. Participants will select to attend relevant sessions based upon feedback from an initial needs analysis and can attend as many sessions as they wish but must attend at least 50% of the programme.

All sessions are delivered by Specialist Leaders of Education from the Outwood Institute of Education and are held at the Outwood Conference Centre, based at Outwood Academy Adwick. To ensure minimum impact on schools, sessions are a mixture of full days, twilights and weekend sessions; attendance to the first session is mandatory and further session will be decided once delegates’ needs have been identified.
