Learning to Teach Physics

A guide to support for student physics and science teachers.

At the Institute of Physics, our aim is to secure a flourishing future for physics. We promote physics education at all levels but we know that passion for science is born in school and it is here that it must be most carefully nurtured. 

Whether you are a physics graduate or have another background, your role as a teacher of physics is crucial to the next generation of scientists. 

This booklet gives you some idea of the ways that we can support you during your Initial Teacher Education (ITE).
