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 - contact [email protected].
