Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Delegates will: learn strategies to successfully manage practical science lessons; learn interventions to address particular behavioural issues; increase their confidence in delivering practical science lessons; examine the development of learning in Science learning, and motivation in general; evaluate and improve the learning dynamic in their own classes; develop their range of successful sanctions and rewards, suitable to science; discuss innovative ways to manage seating plans and classroom organisation; examine the development of laboratory rules.

Ideal for teachers and instructors of science

Evidence underpinning this approach

The trainer draws on many years of successful science teaching, including mainstream, grammar, special needs schools and Pupil Referral Units. He has experience of having turned around several failing departments and facilitating the success of many challenging students. He maintains his currency by keeping up to date with research, and continuing to teach challenging students part-time.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Delegates will be able to successfully manage practical investigations with challenging classes, and will see increasing learning engagement - including with disaffected students.

Follow-up activities and support

Delegates will be expected to focus on a few key areas suitable for them, with which they can enrich their own departments
