Future Physics Leaders

Targeted support and training for school physics departments

Our Future Physics Leaders (FPL) project focuses on areas and schools that are most in need of support. We’re working with state-funded secondary schools in these target areas, which have been identified by the Department for Education as priority areas for education work.  

We are currently recruiting both Partner Schools and Lead Schools for the FPL project. This opportunity could be right for you if you are in one of the target areas and are interested in:

  • Training, support and mentoring for teachers of physics, designed for schools that have recently received a low Ofsted rating.  
    Find out more about becoming an FPL Partner School.
  • Becoming a beacon for physics teaching and support in the local area, and developing your physics department into one of the best in the country.

This programme is funded by the Department for Education, so there is no charge to schools or teachers.
