Maths and sciences teachers' CPD

The University of Manchester is committed to providing a range of continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for teachers. As part of our suite of activities, we organise and deliver a biannual conference for teachers of maths and sciences.

The conference consists of two consecutive events at which you can engage with the cutting-edge research that takes place at the University. The event's aim is to pass the spark of inspiration from our researchers to you, and then into your classrooms.

One day focuses on maths and physics, the other focuses on biology and chemistry. Both days update you on the latest research taking place and provide tools to integrate new knowledge into your subject teaching.

These events are free; you may choose to come either one or both days, depending on your subject responsibilities and interests.

By attending, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • attend workshops delivered by academic researchers who are world leaders in their field of interest;
  • network and share best practice with like-minded teachers and researchers, looking towards future collaboration;
  • explore the range of STEM degree programmes available at The University of Manchester;
  • nurture your own passion for your subject.

The conference will be of interest to:

  • secondary or post-16 teachers of maths, physics, chemistry, biology and related disciplines;
  • secondary PGCE students in science subjects;
  • those involved in the teaching of STEM subjects, eg lab technicians;
  • those responsible for STEM progression and enrichment in your school/college.

The next conference will take place in June 2020.
