About the National Space Academy

The National Space Academy is a network of outstanding teachers and space scientists that use the inspirational context of space to teach STEM subjects to GCSE, A Level and BTEC students and their teachers. Led by the National Space Centre on behalf of the UK Space Agency, European Space Agency (ESA) and Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the Academy delivers student masterclasses and teacher CPD as well as holding careers events; its purpose being to materially enhance the size and quality of the UK science and engineering skills pool.

The National Space Academy Showcase Event

The Academy’s programmes have all been developed by a network of scientists working with current outstanding science teachers seconded to the Academy (“Lead Educators”) to ensure maximum relevance to the curriculum and individual schools’ needs. The showcase event will highlight how the programme works and includes a free CPD session delivered by Nicole Cozens (National Space Academy Lead Educator). Local schools and colleges, local authorities, education business partnerships and other interested parties are all welcome.
