Primary Schools CPD

Science Oxford specialises in providing CPD for primary teachers with a strong hands-on element. All our courses are linked to the new primary curriculum and our goal is to engage and inspire you in science, design and technology and computing and enable you to feel equipped to do the same for your pupils.

Schools, school partnerships/academy groups or other educational organisations are welcome to book us to deliver any of the courses described. We offer a free twilight CPD session for as part of our annual membership for schools. To book, call 01865 810000, email on [email protected] or complete the booking form for the relevant CPD session and we will contact you.

We will discuss with you the requirements for use of equipment in your school before visiting.
