    Description

    The Gatsby Practical Science report was published in 2017 and made a series of recommendations to improve practical science in schools. The main recommendation was that every school should have a written policy that explains why teachers use practical science, the outcomes they expect from it and how they achieve those outcomes. The process of producing the policy is as important as the policy itself.

    This workshop will give you the opportunity to try out the ASE practical policy writing materials before you use them with your own department.
