TSST Classroom Resources

The TSST Classroom Resources contain teaching materials for schools delivering TSST courses to non-specialist teachers.

The PowerPoint slideshows were developed for a 30-day course entitled Science Additional Specialism: Physics. Each PowerPoint file represents roughly one day’s programme of the course. Any TSST provider wishing to use these resources should customise the files to suit their respective course.

The TSST classroom materials may be used within educational establishments free of charge, but it may not be reproduced for profit by any other organisation.
