Stimulating Physics Network
The Institute of Physics and the Science Learning Centres have formed a partnership to run a support network for teachers and pupils of physics in England.
This is known as the Stimulating Physics Network.
The project is funded by the Department for Education until March 2014.
The aim of the Stimulating Physics Network is to provide an inspiring, coherent and sustainable programme of lessons, activities and continuing professional development (CPD) to achieve a step change in the teaching of physics in England.
The 70 strong network consists of 35 Physics Network Coordinators and 35 Teaching and Learning Coaches – all knowledgeable, experienced and enthusiastic specialists who are supported by the IOP’s Education Department.
Physics Network Coordinators offer support to all secondary schools, including:
|Teacher support||Pupil support|
Over 350 selected schools (Stimulating Physics Network Partner Schools) are supported by the Teaching and Learning Coaches in a more intensive relationship.
