The Science Teaching Leadership Programme supports the Government’s national strategic plan for science in society. This programme focuses on developing science leaders. It requires a formal commitment from the school or science department to make science learning and professional development a priority for 12 – 18 months following the participant teacher’s return to school.
- gain an understanding of the Nature of Science curriculum strand through workshops and working in a scientific organisation for two terms
- develop their leadership skills through participating in leadership training
- facilitate improvement of science teaching and student learning school-wide, working alongside their principal and/or head of department to enhance the school’s science programme and vision for science education
The next application round will open in early 2017 for phase one start dates of term 3 2017, term 1 2018 and term 3 2018. The 2018 start dates are subject to government funding.
