Teacher Network

The Teacher Network offers professional development opportunities for teachers of physics.

The Teacher Network offers ongoing professional development experiences for teachers of physics at all levels. Teachers who have previously engaged in one of our programmes, such as the Partnership programme or Early Career Support, are eligible to be part of the Teacher Network.

The Teacher Network offers teachers of physics inspirational and transformative CPD opportunities, conferences and webinars to improve teaching practice, access to funding for education research and the chance to be part of a broad community of physics educators.

Upcoming Teacher Network activities include:

  • Culham Centre for Fusion Energy residential CPD programme, July 2024
  • Teacher Network conference, November 2024
  • Boulby Mine visit and CPD programme, December 2024
  • CERN teacher trip, Summer 2025

All opportunities available through the Teacher Network are shared in our half-termly Teacher Network email. If you are eligible to join the Teacher Network and are not receiving the mailings, please sign up here.
