Abstract

Following the SCORE report in 2008 titled ‘Practical Work in Science’, the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) funded a 2-year programme of professional development for teachers of science to improve the way in which practical work in science was being taught in schools. A consortium of partners, led by the Association for Science Education (ASE) created a package of continuing professional development (CPD) materials for this purpose. The development of this package was informed by the mapping exercise carried out by the Centre for Science Education (CSE) and was put together by experts from the National Science Learning Centre, regional Science Learning Centres (SLCs), CLEAPSS, the University of York, the National Strategies, ASE and CSE.
