The SKPT waves module will be delivered again in October 2023

SKPT waves will be delivered by experienced physics teachers across the UK, 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.

You can book now for Matter & Space and Energy, which will be delivered from February 2023. Sign up here and join our SKPT mailing list to receive notifications of future modules.
