Opportunity for A-level Physics students in Manchester
The Institute of Physics (IOP) is updating its offer for A-level physics students. They are looking for students to take part in a half-day focus group to help shape the future of the IOP offer for 16-18 year olds. The focus groups will be held in Manchester on Friday 16 February (location to be confirmed).
There will be two focus groups:
• 16 February at 10am – 1pm
• 16 February at 2pm – 5pm
If you are available at one of those time slots and would like to contribute and enhance your CV, please contact Olivia at the IOP for more details: [email protected]
The IOP will provide lunch and refreshments on the day, and will cover travel expenses.
Gender inequality training for Teachers across the NW
“The IOP are pleased to announce our latest work on gender equality. In order to extend and accelerate the whole school equality programme, we have increased our provision for both existing schools and new partners to tackle gender inequality in their schools. We have an extended package of support for new schools that are committed to tackling gender stereotyping, including funding for unconscious bias CPD for all staff and a two-day intensive training course for gender champions. We will also be extending this training to our current gender champions. Finally, we have a new pot of funding for new and existing gender champions to carry out further CPD for schools in their school networks or chains. If you are interested, further details can be found here or email [email protected] to express interest.”
The Teacher University Research Network CPD
(TURN Network) brings Lancaster University researchers together with school students and teachers to inspire the next generation of researchers. TURN aims to host several meetings and school Inset Days across the academic calendar to develop links and relationships with staff in schools, providing them with the opportunity to engage with academics and other professional services staff as part of their continuous professional development.
The Spring TURN meeting will provide teachers with the opportunity to meet in small groups with Lancaster University academics to discuss recent changes in the curricula, before a performance of Hourglass by The Dukes Over 50’s Primetime group and Junior Young Actors group, followed by a panel discussion on science and art facilitated by the Institute of Physics.
Lancaster University – Thursday 8th February 2018 3.30pm – 6.30pm
