Trainee & Early Career Membership

The Association for Science Education is a professional community that, among other things, is dedicated to supporting educators to develop excellent science teaching and learning skills. As a cornerstone of that commitment, we work exceptionally hard with our trainee members in order to help them through those critical years of training and early careers teaching. We want you to be able to enjoy the support and benefits that being part of our network and community bring, and are delighted to be able to give our trainee & early career members a special three-year offer, at a significantly discounted membership rate:
