“Science is an integral part of culture. It’s not this foreign thing, done by an arcane priesthood. It’s one of the glories of human intellectual tradition.” (Stephen Jay Gould) 

Our programme for Year Two Provisionally Certified Teachers is designed to deepen and extend your understanding of current and emerging teaching trends. Each session is coordinated by experienced teachers who will work with you around ‘what's on top', questions, issues and your content suggestions. They will be joined by industry experts, and you may split into smaller groups according to your year level or interests. 

Fourth session:
Taking a hands-on look at science and maths.

  • Talk about the importance of Science education

  • Look at curriculum coverage and what HAS to be taught

  • Show how easy it is to plan Science for a year

  • Share the best practical resources/documents

  • Show you some amazing equipment

  • Do some cool fun experiments using easily obtained equipment.

Like all your sessions, there will be plenty of opportunities for sharing, questions and discussion with your peers and facilitators. Other content of this final session will be decided according to the suggestions from the group, and will be sought in Session 3. 

ERO cites “regular opportunities to interact with other beginning teachers” as being one of the key factors identified by PCTs as helping their professional growth for effective teaching. 

Enroling for all sessions is strongly recommended so that PCTs can build a supportive network and benefit from the regular goal-setting and reflection aspects of the package. 

The full package is priced at $300(members) / $375 (non-members). To enrol in a full year package (4 sessions) click on the link below under 'Associated Course Packages' - Course fees exclude GST.
