Why join? Professional learning...

“When I was an NQT, whenever I was struggling for inspiration for a particular lesson, or simply just running short of time, one of first places I’d check out is the ASE website. There’s usually something there that I could use or adapt, and as it was from the ASE I knew it had been checked and I could trust it.”

One of the most popular benefits of ASE membership is our ongoing provision of professional development opportunities. We know that staying up to date with developments in the science education field is of utmost importance to help shape future generations of scientists, which is why our CPD events are led by experts in the field to give our members the highest quality of learning.

The professional development opportunities members broadly fall into two categories: events ranging from face-to-face events to online webinars that help members advance specific skills and journals that help the science education community keep their finger on the pulse of emerging issues and developments.
