Teacher support

Inspiring and committed teachers in the classroom are fundamental in changing the physics learning landscape. We offer a range of programmes to support teachers throughout their careers.

The Trust works hard to develop meaningful relationships with teachers throughout their careers so they feel supported and nurtured in their profession. The conversation starts with Teach Physics internships for physics undergraduates still at university who might be considering a career in teaching, and includes physics support for students preparing for their initial teacher training.

The Teacher Network offers opportunities and support to early career teachers who are in their first to fifth year of teaching physics and supports teachers of physics who want to develop independent projects, improve their subject knowledge, develop their teaching pedagogy or provide extra-curricular activities/physics outreach.

The Trust provides Subject Knowledge for Physics Teaching (SKPT) courses, which offer free blended learning CPD for KS3 and KS4 teachers without a physics specialism.
