Science Advisors - NAIGS Membership

What is NAIGS?

NAIGS (National Advisers and Inspectors Group for Science) is the subject group for Science Inspectors, Advisers and Consultants. The group's role is to provide continuing updating of information and developments in science, professional development and networking opportunities for its members. Due to the nature of this level of membership, NAIGS members also have close links with schools in all phases to support and advise staff on all issues relating to science education. We also liaise with Ofsted, and the DfE, meeting with their representatives formally once a year and informally on many other occasions to discuss science issues. Find out more about NAIGS.
