STEMedscot Professional Learning

STEM Professional Learning Offer

Education Scotland’s regional officers are able to provide a wide range of professional learning  support in STEM for early years, primary, ASN, secondary and CLD practitioners.  We are also happy to discuss how we might provide support for school-based technical support staff.

Please contact the STEM team at to discuss your needs and/or book a professional learning session.  We are also happy to discuss bespoke programmes to support your needs. Sessions can be requested by local authorities, clusters, individual establishments for a whole team or small group as appropriate. Please note that given the Covid-19 restrictions in place, professional learning sessions are taking place virtually.

Following on from the webinar series in 2020, we have created a number of narrated Power Points for practitioners to use at a time of their own choosing. In 2021 our intentions are to explore the following themes:

  • DYW and STEM
  • Learning for Sustainability and COP 26
  • Promoting equity in STEM
  • Monthly STEM clinics.
