  • Static electricity & Van De Graaff
  • Modelling electricity & resistance
  • Components & building circuits
  • Resistance of wire; series & parallel
  • History & experiments with magnetism
  • Magnetism & movement
  • Calculations & definitions; electrical power
  • Transformers (optional)

The SKPT electricity module will next run in October 2023

SKPT electricity will be led by experienced physics teachers, who will facilitate and support participants on this eight-week CPD module, designed for non-specialist physics teachers.

Participants must be state school teachers in England, with some physics on their timetable and must not have a physics ITT qualification.
