What is your advice about? Subject specific support and CPD for Science teachers

1: Join the Association for Science Education, the ASE, the largest subject teachers’ association in the UK. Visit their website at http://www.ase.org.uk

2: Join #asechat on twitter every Monday night between 8.00 and 9.00 pm. Attend the regional CPD events in your area and meet other Science teachers.

3: Attend the ASE Annual Conference held in January; this offers the very best value for money CPD and fabulous networking opportunities for science teachers of all disciplines

4: Start to think about your own ‘professional learning journey’, Look at what you need to do to achieve Chartered Science Teacher Status (C.Sci.Teach – all on the ASE website).

5: Remember you are not alone. The ASE offers support, friendship, resources, journals, books and high quality CPD opportunities at reduced rates.
