In June 2013 we held a number of free regional workshops to seek views of teachers and educational professionals from around the UK.

The feedback from these workshops will help us to create a vision for science and mathematics education.

We have visited:

  • Cornwall: The Eden Project, St Austell
  • Birmingham: Thinktank Science Museum
  • Manchester: Museum of Science & Industry
  • York: National Science Learning Centre

More information

The workshop covered topics such as:

  • the teaching profession
  • school-to-work transition
  • school leadership
  • technology in the learning environment
  • future knowledge and skills
  • accountability for the future

These teacher focused consultations have created debate and brought forward a number of exciting ideas that will be incorporated into the Vision. Across the workshops, there have in particular been two recurring themes:  how can we increase validity in assessment systems and what should the relationship between professionalism and teaching look like?

A report covering all of the workshops in detail will be made available and published here in due course.
