Continuing Professional Development
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for Science educators
Attending CPD through Science Learning Centre South West can help you to inspire your students as scientists and citizens of the future.
Located within At-Bristol, Science Learning Centre South West delivers CPD within the centre and at numerous satellite venues.
As well as our programme of professional development and outreach courses we offer school improvement support. Drawing on the expertise of science education consultants, OfSted inspectors, practicing teachers and local authority colleagues we can help identify need within your school, analyse your improvement plans and develop a professional development package for improving science teaching and learning in your school.

Funding through Impact Awards is available for most of the support we offer, making it even easier for you to engage in professional development. Any teacher, lecturer or technician from a state-maintained, English school can benefit from up to £150 Impact Award bursary per day. Schools can also benefit from up to five Impact Awards (£750) per day for outreach courses.
Our outreach programme gives you access to all of our courses in the comfort of your school, local authority or cluster at a time and venue that suits you. Sessions are flexible, allowing the course to be tailored to your needs, and can be held in a variety of formats including full-day courses, half-day sessions, twilight sessions and multi-day courses.
The educational experience within our Centre is supported by our partner institutions: At-Bristol, University of Bristol and Plymouth University. Through these institutions we access current scientific research and draw on the expertise of the formal and informal education sectors.
