This event engaged science teachers in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) at a ‘Festival of Biology’ designed for Year 8 learners at the University of Cumbria, with support from Carlisle College, Kendal College and the Royal Society of Biology.
The aim of the CPD was to support the delivery of the A-Level curriculum and broader Biology teaching. Science teachers, who accompanied the learners, received CPD from University of Cumbria academics in partnership with college staff and current Further Education and Higher Education students, with support from the Royal Society of Biology.
The project will be sustained in 2020 through the Sir John Fisher Foundation-funded STEM outreach project. The event will be held on 2nd July 2020.
