Student teachers

Teaching is one of the most challenging and fulfilling careers you could have. We know that confident, knowledgeable teachers not only stay in the classroom for longer but they also pass on their passion to their students.

We offer a wide range of support to teachers of physics throughout their training through our free Student Teacher Affiliation scheme. You’ll get materials that will help you develop your own understanding of physics, resources that will help you teach it at all levels, advice on practical demonstrations and suggestions on how to keep your physics teaching engaging for everyone.

You can rest assured our support doesn’t stop once you’ve finished training. There is also loads we can do to help during your early years as a teacher as well as throughout your career.
