2016 sees the launch of a new programme of events and support for Associate Schools and Colleges to help them work towards the Royal Society’s Vision for science and mathematics education.

Benefits

The Associate Schools and Colleges network aims to raise the profile of biology, chemistry, computing and physics within participating schools and colleges in line with its Vision for science and mathematics education.

Those participating in the network can raise their profile through the use of the charter mark and targeted support for activities, including access to scientists from the cutting edge of industry and academia. The network supports a culture of sharing best practice between teachers in all schools and colleges across the UK. Teachers also have the opportunity to feed their views into the work of the Royal Society as well as engaging with our other projects and activities.

The Royal Society benefits from working closely with teachers when we conduct research, respond to policy consultations and create teaching resources. We ask teachers in participating schools to contribute to our work, for example by responding to a consultation, reviewing teaching resources or participating in an event.
