Following the publication of its 3-18 Curriculum Impact Report for Sciences in September 2012, Education Scotland organised a series of conversation days where priorities for action to secure improvements in science education nationally were identified.
Key aspects for development emerged, which included primary and early years practitioners requiring:
- support with the initial planning for learning and teaching in the sciences
- guidance and exemplifications for assessment in the sciences
- support to develop and improve confidence in teaching the experiences and outcomes, including how to deliver practical activities
To address each aspect the sciences team will be hosting three Glow meets, complimented by a series of professional learning twilight sessions.
The first Glow meet Supporting the Sciences: planning the primary & early years science curriculum will take place on Wednesday 17th September 3.45 – 4.30pm.

Further information regarding dates and venues for the professional learning twilights relating to this Glow meet will be available shortly.
