  • Beginning Science teaching: memories and experiences

  • The Beginning Science Teachers HandbookBackground:Developed by the Science Enhancement Programme in collaboration with the ASEPart of a suit of collaborative resourcesPrimary Aim: to provide a product that can be used to enhance the induction of beginning secondary science teachers in order to provide a systematic, worthwhile introduction to their early professional development and their careers

  • The Beginning Science Teachers HandbookWho developed it?SEP working with three groups of beginning science teachers and induction tutors in Cheshire; the University of Nottingham; Greenwich and LewishamProject also supported by an advisory committee

  • Exploration of the resource

  • Distribution and availabilityThose in initial science teacher training The tutors in initial teacher training have requested copies for their current year group.

    NAIGS members Those who are in the National Advisers and Inspectors Group for Science have received two copies to use within any training opportunities or at meetings with those in the first few years of their science teaching career. The resource will be referred to at the NAIGS Conference in July 2006.

    Key Organisations supporting the induction of science teachers A number of organisations and CPD establishments bring together cohorts of beginning science teachers have also received the resource for distribution.

  • Effective implementation and possible next steps?How will this resource be most effectively used between mentors and mentees?What else is needed?Is the CD format best for this e.g. should it be also be online, made available to members, or just as part of the NQT package?
