Description

The relationship between school science technicians and teachers is crucial to the delivery of high quality science in our schools. The planning and delivery of practical lessons is a team effort, with teachers and technicians working closely together. As'practical lessons and learning outside the classroom are essential contributors to a good science education' (House of Commons, 2010/12), this working relationship has to be productive and successful to achieve the best possible education for our pupils.
